You asked for a introduction so here it is...
I am a college student, in my fifth year at University.
Looking back I have always had anxiety prone attributes most of my life but up until my junior year of college (Fall 2011), I was always able to cope with it and eventually get over that hump.
Fall 2011 something changed and suddenly the hill was 100x taller and self sabotaging. All the sudden my brain was my worst enemy. That is almost 3 years ago, and I have been on a roller coaster ever since. I am diagnosed with severe depression and panic disorder. So the past 2 and a half years have been basically been me chasing after the normal "train" , I have gotten on but eventually fallen off every time. School seems to be my number one issue as I dislike everything about the system. But I have been set on getting a degree and just want to finish. Everyday I have class, the battle wages on. I am hoping to maybe learn some techniques from people who share my experiences.
