I'm new here. I joined because I'm dealing with the care of a family member suffering from GAD and possibly Bi-Polar. I have personally had bouts, albeit each less than a year, with both depression and anxiety attacks. I've also experienced chemical dependency (from anxiety meds) and also have knowledge of addiction.
I'm not perfect, I try to learn from my mistakes and any advice or knowledge I would share is based on my personal experience and own research. I'm not a doctor, but I care about people who are struggling with anxiety and the like and my intentions are good.
