Hello, I'm New
« on: August 28, 2014, 05:56:24 PM »
Hello, my name is Julia. I'm a 21 year old military spouse and dog obedience intern. I also have been diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder for 7 years. (Though I've had severe anxiety much longer). Within the past week I've noticed my anxiety getting severely worse, so that even when I'm in situations I would normally consider 'safe' I feel extreme anxiety and worry over things. I'm worried about my health, I'm worried about my financial situation, I'm worried about school, I'm worried about my weight. Everything.
Anywhoo, maybe being around some people with more experience (or just some kind understanding) will ease it up a bit. Nice to meet you all.

Hi Julia, I am new also! nice to meet you.
I know exactly how you are feeling, its really hard to deal with the feelings sometimes, especially when you are starting to feel anxiety in places you feel safe. I can imagine it is really scary. Are you currently going to therapy or on any medication to calm down your anxiety? If you don't mind me asking that is. I myself feel like I have hit rock bottom with my anxiety and have turned to medication and its still not enough. Sometimes you need therapy and medication, I am just trying to think positive and take it one day at a time, thats my best advice. Also, having a strong support system really helps. Do you have anyone that you can go to that understands what you are going through, or at least tries to?

we all carry these things inside that no one else can see, they hold us down like anchors, they drown us out at sea.
