Hi everybody, I’m new here. Nice to meet you all!

Small summary of my problems: I suffer from generalized anxiety / panic attacks. I have an overactive imagination and will come up with the most far-fetched scenarios to confirm the fears I am feeling. I am generally scared of people, especially those I don’t know. I am much more comfortable in the company of animals.

My job involves the study of language. There is a notion in linguistics called ‘possible world’, which is used to explain the meaning of words like ‘can’, ‘might’, ‘must’. I always joke that one day, science will discover that my condition is linked to an overproduction of possible worlds :) Unfortunately, my brain tends to generate the bad ones, and not the happy ones...

I hope everybody here is as well as they can possibly be. Thanks for having me, and take care!

Hey ambienceatmosphere, nice to meet you! I have so much respect for translators, they have such a special relation to words and meaning. Which languages do you translate between?

Welcome Shenon!

I like animals, too. I have a white rabbit that I adore. He’s friendly and joyful, and a nice ray of sunshine in my life. Can you imagine that there might be a world that’s filled with fluffy bunnies that are fun to pet, and play with, and who love to give you soft bunny kisses? I can!

Anyway, I hope you find this forum helpful.

Hi Joe57! That sounds like a very nice world indeed! I live some of the time in the countryside and we have many white hares on the fields. Not so cuddly -- they're wild animals after all -- but so majestic and full of life. I always imagine that, like in the legends, they will lead whoever follows them to a new world.

I have a ten-year-old dog. Quite a character. And of course, totally beautiful. Give your rabbit a friendly pat for me :)

Thanks for the welcome!
