Hello everyone, it's so exciting to find a place where others can relate to me and not think I'm completely crazy. I have had anxiety issues since I was a young child. But in my family it wasn't okay to show that kind of weakness. You had to always be strong and smiling. When I went to college, it all came sinking in on me. I had so many thoughts and emotions that I could finally feel and express I didn't know what to do with it all.
I have tried numerous medications none of which have truly worked, and have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, in the midst of everything else. I have been told that the MS makes the anxiety worse. I beleive it would still be bad even with out MS.
I am looking forward to being able to express myself without worrying about what others think. Looking forward to what is ahead.
