Introducing Myself
« on: June 02, 2014, 11:35:52 AM »
Greetings Everyone. Today is my birthday, and rather than enjoying myself, I am spending another day consumed by fear and anxiety. So, today, instead of consulting Dr. Google for another 6 hours, I decided to do this instead. I've read posts on this forum for a long time, just hoping that maybe I'll see that there are other people like me, and that I won't feel so alone. What to say? I am 41 years old today, and have been dealing with OCD and Health Anxiety for most of my life. I'm sad and frustrated and nearly at the end of my rope, and hoping maybe this will help. I have an art show in a week, nothing is ready, weeds are overtaking my garden, and I haven't even eaten breakfast at 11:30 AM. Instead, I am the person who when asked "What did you do for your birthday?" could actually answer, "Well, I spent some of it trying to measure my boob with a dressmaker's tape to see if it is really growing larger and whether I indeed have a rare breast cancer." This is no way to live. Maybe this is a step in the right direction (this post, not the tape measure).

Welcome to the forum. Good to have you as a member. Here you are with like minded people. People who understand. As we all suffer from something or other. So feel free to ask any questions. Our members are always willing to help others out. Good chatroom too. 3 posts to enter the room.

Find the correct section of the forum that suits your condition and create a new topic on it. This is just a welcome section. Never really get the same amount of help in this section as you would on the other sections of the forums. So whatever one suits the questions you are asking. Get much better answers.
All users of the chatroom must be 18 years old or over. The room is off limits to anybody under the age of 18.
