I am starting with a quick post, more later. I am a 42 year old female professional living in San Francisco. I have had GAD as long as I can remember, starting with separation anxiety from my mother and spending hours and hours laying in bed as a child imaging that I could build a bed under the floor with an opening at the head for air so that I would feel safe. There is so much more to tell and I will in my next post but right now I need to zip out the door to go meet friends. Note that last sentence because there was a time where that was impossible. I hated to leave the house and I had no real friends as my social anxiety was debilitating. There will be scary stories from me and happy ones. There will be the exploration of topics on things that I still struggle with and am just "surviving" with. More later!
