Hi Everyone,

I read various posts on here over the last few weeks, and though I`d try to be brave and post today and see if anyone could offer any advice or help from there own experiences.

I`ve had depression/anxiety on and off for the last 6 years, but at the mo, I am at an all time low. I`m on several lots of medication.

My anxiety has go so bad it`s taken over my life, I HATE going out, or even speaking on the phone, and today I`m here alone.

I know there's no magic cure, but i just wondered how other people had got through this.

Take care x

Hi Topsy. I don't want to leave my house either, but because I am scared people will kidnap me. I know how you feel. I used to have severe social anxiety but managed to recover very well. I especially hated answering the phone. But since I had made so many friends by going out and meeting new people, whenever they'd text or phone it became second nature, and it didn't matter who phoned :).

Well done on posting here after being anxious to do so. That's a step forward!

If you like I can PM you some of my experiences and we can compare and see how you can conquer your social phobia and anxiety?

Hi Blondie,

Thanks for the reply. Yep, my parents know and they have been driving me to the Dr`s and CBT appointments, as I`m not up to it. Also my boyfriend is very supportive, so I am lucky.

Thank you for the link to, unfortunately I can`t open it, but that could be this me or this laptop, I`m not great with technology!

Take care.
