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.
