Hi all, have just joined the forum. I suffered with anxiety and depression as a child and on and off throughout the years but have managed it with low level medication. However, now at a different stage of my life where my children are getting older and moving on to university etc and I sometimes feel I'm not able to handle their anxieties, stresses in the best way and looking for some advice! Hopefully I may be able to offer some advice or an ear to others along the way too.

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
We do have lots of parents here that I'm sure will help you.
I'm sorry you struggle with anxiety.

Thanks @Mayflower7 that's really reassuring. Feel guilty that I've projected some of my anxieties onto my daughter who has also suffered from anxiety. Want to be there for her in a supportive way so trying to deal with my own issues might help.

I started to see a therapist just two week's before lockdown began which then stopped. Looking back I should have continued with online sessions but I didn't. Now seriously thinking I should start again but thought I would try a safe forum like this too as it's nice to feel you are not alone.
