Hello. Just joined.
« on: May 12, 2014, 12:00:01 AM »
I am new here.  I have anxiety, depression, OCD, and hypochondria.  I have been reading other posts, and it is helpful to know that I am not alone.  I have been on Prednisone for 25 years for the treatment of an uncommon autoimmune vascular disease.  I am currently in the process of lowering my dose because according to my doctors they cannot find evidence of the condition.  Prednisone probably has contributed to a lot of my problems, but I had depression, OCD and anxiety before.  I am also a caregiver now for the past 8 years, and it is very stressful.   I am embarrassed that I have these anxiety problems, which is why I am reluctant to go to any local support groups.  I am glad that sites like this exist. Thank-you.

Hi Dragonfly,

Welcome to the forum.  It is great to have you as a member.  This is a wonderful place to get advice and support from people going through similar situations.  The members here are very helpful. It is nice to know we are not alone.

Feel free to explore the forum.  There are lots of useful topics to read.  Feel free to post and ask questions.  If you have specific concerns or questions start a topic in the appropriate section to get the best feedback. There is also a chat room for members 18 years and older that you can access once you have made three meaningful posts in the forum. 

Again welcome to our community.

It's not what's in front of us that stops us.  It's what's inside that holds us back.
