Hi Poppy, and welcome to Anxiety Zone... My name is Chuck, and I am one of the Global Moderators here on the site.
You are now a member of our community, where you will find support and advice from other members in similar situations. It's always nice to find someone else who understands, and to know you're not alone.
We have sections in the forum that address specific concerns, so feel free to post or start a new topic in the section that best fits your situation. Feel free to explore the rest of the forum. You may find the other topics helpful, and you may be able to offer advice or support to someone else.
We also have a chat room for members over the age of 18. Once you have made three meaningful posts, you will be allowed access to the chat room.
Oh yes, Poppy, I have been there more than once. Some 8-10 months ago, I thought it was going to be the end of me. I was sure my mind was broke, felt that I was going crazy, but I wasn't, as these are classic characteristics of anxiety disorder. You will find that a vast majority of members on this site have either been, or are currently in that boat.
It was a lonely place to be, lonely as in past tense, as for me, finding Anxiety Zone really helped to turn my life around. I found members here on the site, that shared their experience, strength, and hope with me. And I am honored today, to call a number of these members my friend, and lifelong friends too.
It's good to have you here as a member. The very best to you, Poppy!... Chuck
