Hello all :)
Finally going to introduce myself. Tried another forum awhile back but it wasn't very active and responses were rare so hoping for a busier one :) I've been lurking for awhile and it seems to be.
Anyhow, I'm an almost 30 yr old female who is struggling with anxiety, panic attacks and ocd (not diagnosed but I know I have it). I have been dealing with this since I was a child but I had a long stretch where I was just fine and then it all came crashing down about 2 yrs ago and has been on and off since (mostly on). I am having new anxieties and phobias that I haven't dealt with in the past so it is a real struggle. I know you can all relate and I'm just hoping for some answers and to talk to those who can relate. I am having an even more difficult time because I am seeing my daughter experience the same things I did at her age and I want to help her but I cannot hardly help myself and it's killing me.
Just trying so hard to get through this and back to being myself. I am so tired of living my life around my anxiety and holding my husband and kids back from things because I am unable to do them. I have to figure this out for my daughter. I don't want her to have to deal with this
I am here if anyone needs to talk and would appreciate any advice. I have so much respect and compassion for everyone dealing with this because it is so hard sometimes. Good luck to you all I hope that we all find the answers we are looking for soon so that we can relax and enjoy life how we all would like to :)
