Hello Amanda. 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.
Amanda, I joined Anxiety Zone last November, for the same reasons that you are here. I found that the only people that could understand what I was going through with my anxiety/panic disorder with panic attacks, were those that have been through it. I even had family members with the old mindset that I just needed to put myself up by the bootstraps, and be happy once more. If it was only that easy, none of us would be here.
So, you are not alone. You have found a site filled with individuals that are going through what you are experiencing right now, or have been through it, and I have been through it more than once.
It is good to have you here as a member. The very best to you, Amanda!... Chuck
