Hello everyone, I joined here because of general anxiety disorder. I'm not sure when exactly it started but I've always worried. It was manageable with my own mechanisms I used at the time, but it seems that the symptoms have worsened over time though to the point that it's now constant extreme worry. It's that kind that makes it hard to do anything, even sleep or eat. I guess one could say it is almost literally like the phrase paralyzed with fear. I joined here hoping that I can chat it up with fellow anxiety sufferers and maybe find some good new techniques to help curb it (as when this extreme anxiety began all the old tricks that used to work completely stopped).
