Hi

Iv just joined.
Iv suffered with anxiety since I was very young. Iv had good times and very very dark times.
I was doing ok, until December last year I had a job interview. The manager offered me the job on the spot and I freaked out. I had a full scale breakdown and I turned job the job. I seemed help and Iv been doing great. I was on medication until June, I came off it as my partner and I wanted to have another baby.
Iv had moments of feeling like I'm falling but I got a hobby to focus me and it's something I absolulty love and if I could get a job doing it id run at it.

Iv just been for a job interview. First one since last year, doing a job I used to do, but didn't particularly enjoy. It went well but now the anxiety is creeping in again. Why can't I just get over the hump in the road and accept a job.

I have no friends as I moved to a new place and I'm really awkward and talk too much when nervous so ppl tend to not talk to me much.

I feel lost and extremely lonely

Welcome to the forum. Sorry about your anxiety. Sounds like you have social and/or performance anxiety.
Have you read or researched anything about that? I used to have really bad social anxiety. Have you heard of Max Lucado? He wrote a book called Anxious for Nothing. It is the most amazing and helpful book I have ever read on the subject of anxiety. I go back to it often.

I have very bad social anxiety where i fear even going to the store incase i embarrass myself. I struggle talking to family members if i havent seen them in a while. What job do you have? I cant find one where I dont struggle. Its getting too much now. I have been doing CBT for years and on med but nothing works!

Have a look around the forum. :) It's a bit quiet at night (in uk time)
