    New and nervous

    Hi All, I've struggled with anxiety since I can remember. Over the last few years health anxiety has been a big problem for me. I am terrified of side effects of any medications, and so for a long time avoided telling my doc about my anxieties because I was worried he'd put me on something...

    My dad is ruining my life

    Hi. I am a 24 year old female. My story is terribly long and boring but I will try to make it short. I grew up in a house with a very agressive father and quite a passive mother. My father used to beat me and my brothers whenever we did anything wrong. My mom was and is still a very weak person...

    A sea of panic

    I have had general anxiety and panic attacks for 5 years now and never taken any medication to address it. It comes in waves that can last 1-2 months and then i'll be panic free for 3-4. I have gone a year or more without an episode. This is part of the reason I have never started taking...

    Depression, anxiety etc

    Ok I'll start of by saying I'm a 22 year old male. I have battled anxiety almost non stop since I started high school. During my high school days, I would say it was a lot of very irrational, sexual health related anxieties. These anxieties have most probably been the cause of my lack of any...

    Rather than BPD thinking I could be a healer

    Who or what has influenced you the most in life?

    Firstly it has to be my dad...he encouraged me to pursue my education, though in wanting the best, his anxieties often transferred on to me. The book, 'Lord of the Flies' by William Golding. Ghandi. My partner....... qf.

    Can ANYONE relate to my problems?

    Hi, I'm not exactly what's wrong with me, even though it's supposed to be OCD, but I deviate from classic OCD by large. However, I am always drowned by anxieties.. and sometimes depressed and feeling hopeless. The things with which I deal are matters of the past, things that I feel I've done...
