Hi All
I am new here, i felt i wanted to talk about my anxiety. I m feel fed up talking to friends about how hard I struggle with it. Sometimes its nice to get it out but I feel it can make others negative about me. I sometimes get down around my girlfriend who is a very confend women.

So I am a 31 year old I have had anxiety and its stop me from doing alot of stuff in my life but its got me to places where I never think I would be.
I am very dyslexic and I am a artist doing a degree in craft, learning new skills. I thought by doing a degree in this subject would cure me of anxiety, but its acty mad it worse as in there is less of it but when i have a anxiety attack it quite full on. I feel my tutors hide from me knowing i have this, i made friends who understand and listen if i need to talk.

So with this my girlfriend who has now put up with me for 6 long month (Can I hear a big Awwww please hehe) is a kick boxer and has a very high power job, she is contend, and smart and dating this guy who suffers with anxiety and low contents loves to me bits. Sometimes I find it hard to accept, its drafted. I do this thing where i try to product what some is thinking and I always think they are thinking negative of me.

Well I watch her take part in the marital art competition and watch others fight as-well, I had done passed boxing and MMA but wasn't encouraged to keep at it by friends and my ex at that time. After walking this I went to the locale taekwondo  club and it was so friendly, I have now done two months (reminds me i need to pay next time i go) I am going to be fighting in a torment on saturday. Why I am sharing this is doing taekwondo hasnt cured my anxiety but the hour i spend training and sparing takes away all knowledge of all my problems. I would recommend anyone to give somthink like this a go doesn't matter how fit you are.

This has help jsut writing this even if people dont read it.:)

All the best all

Hey MJ

I too am new here. Well, in the posting sense. I've been reading the stuff here for quite a while but haven't actually signed up until now. I can give you the heads up that it is a great resource that I'm sure will help you weave your way through the struggle with anxiety.
