Hi everyone,
My name is Teri & I am AloneAmongFriends. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada & the mental health here is the pits. I have been through 6 counselors in a year & finally gave up. Having to tell your story over & over again is annoying as HELL. Like we don't have enough to deal with, right?
I have lived with depression, anxiety, social phobia & panic disorder most of my life. Had my first panic attack at the age of 9. I'm better now, but only because I don't go a lot of places, never go to parties or gatherings (even family ones) because I feel so insecure & terrified of everyone.
My interests are mostly things you can do alone; Watching TV, reading, listening to music, crocheting, quilting, etc. I eat too much junk food & weight over 300lbs because of it. Food was always my friend. Trying to live with depression & type 2 diabetes can wear on a person. lol.
Hope to make a few friends & maybe get some understanding here. Hope everyone has a good Tuesday & thanks for reading my intro.
Catch ya later.
