I guess I should start by telling you all my "issues". I have bouts of depression, I was diagnosed with GAD, but I don't like labels. My family has various mental health issues too. Oh what joy! (Sorry, sometimes I have to see the humour in these things.) I've been trying to find ways to cope by myself, because I'm very stubborn about seeking help from others.
Feeling like a burden, not wanting to worry people...it can all get in the way of finding help.

I'm not out of hope though, which is why I wish to be a help to others here too. A lot of the reasons for my motivation in joining this forum is to get an outside perspective on some of the things that cause disress in my life. Not all of it comes from my mind. I deal with family issues that actually cause me more distress than my own anxiety & depression. It's a lack of control that I feel (oh yeah, i'm control freak.)

Anyway, I hope to see you soon in the threads. Love to you all.

Hey. This is proof to me that I made a good choice joining this site. Those last three words are exactly what I need to hear too.

Thanks
