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.

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.

Hi peaceLily,
Please don't feel guilty, it's great your trying to deal with your anxiety.

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.
