Hello

I'm new here. I just posted on the anxiety forum. I finally admitted to myself I need to surround myself with a few people that could relate and understand my limitations, to make me feel less alone. I still worry I'm the worst case of anxiety, agoraphobia and social anxiety. Its tough.

It'll be nice to chat to you all.

Lissy

Welcome to the forum. We are here to listen to each other. Anxiety is such a terrible condition and greatly underestimated in its impact by doctors. I am diagnosed bipolar and when in the depressive phase I experience extreme anxiety which can be crippling.

Thank you so much.

Anxiety can be crippling. Last year I was bed ridden due to anxiety and panic attacks during my severe depression. I dont know which came first but both were debilitating. I've never known anything like it. I was just told I was anxious and it led to depression but I'd never had depression like that in my life.

Sending you a hug.

Thank you all so much for welcoming me. I've posted on the anxiety forum with my story. I'm feeling quite alone in how my anxiety controls my life. Worrying I'm the worst case of social anxiety and agoraphobia.
