I am new here. I happened across this site after researching an enlarged lymph node in your neck. I have dealt with anxiety all my life. I am 33 and have been able to accomplish many things by harnessing some of the positives of anxiety. Sometimes however it does take over, and a health scare is what prompted me to join this group. I read some of the posts and really was comforted by the support members offered. When I was 27 I was finally diagnosed with OCD and a generalized anxiety disorder. It was nice to finally have a name to describe what I had felt since I was a kid. After finding the right diagnosis, I have been dealing quite well with therapy, medication, acupuncture and frequent visits to the spa ;-). I look forward to sharing and supporting fellow anxiety suffers.
