I'm Jenn, and I've been dealing with anxiety my whole life. Even as a child I was extremely anxious. I was diagnosed with OCD and GAD at 23 by the least helpful psychiatrist ever, but managed to get my symptoms under control. Then, pretty much as soon as I had that in line I developed panic disorder and hypochondria. That's where I'm at now. I have panic attacks on a fairly regular basis, and am pretty much always convinced that I'm dying of something that, realistically, I probably don't have. Right now it's heart issues, because, hey, just because a complete work-up by a cardiologist says you're not dying, doesn't mean you aren't, amiright? I've been lurking for a few days and decided to join for the support and understanding that I just can't get with friends who don't have these issues. They can be supportive, but they just don't *get it*.

Cheers.

I understand how you feel about your friends not "getting it." I feel like friends can be helpful in helping you deal with whatever you're facing but sometimes they just don't completely understand what's going on inside your head! That's why I'm here too! I want to be around others who can understand just a little better and won't get frustrated so easily! I believe we've found a great place  ;D

Good luck!

Find the correct section of the forum that suits your condition and create a new topic on it. This is just a welcome section.
