Hi there,

I want to introduce myself. I have recently come to the realization that I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks. It's particularly shocking because I myself am a mental health therapist and was completely oblivious to my own mental health needs. I always thought my interest in the field was due to the addiction that runs in my family but now I am starting to wonder if I have always been looking for something to explain the way I feel. Working in the field of addictions has opened my eyes to the face that I am also incredibly co-dependent, or should I say, was incredibly co-dependent as I am always actively working on setting boundaries and putting myself first. Saying no to people has become more natural than I ever thought possible. I am looking forward to hearing others stories and explorations in mental health.
