So I was recently diagnosed with general anxiety, social anxiety and a severe sickness phobia a while back from my councillor. I started with therapy, and didn't last very long and dropped out. I'm not on any medication for it, and well I'm suffering, big time. I decided to join a forum, hoping I could find some sort of release if I could talk to somebody who also has to manage this difficult health problem.

Please introduce yourselves

No, it existed before, but in my opinion these type things will create more people with who will have it.

Is it mainly just women on this forum? I don't really know of any men that suffer anxiety, not saying they don't, just I'm unknown to any.

Also, having a hard time at the moment. My friends children have come down with the sickness bug, and my anxiety is literally in overdrive panicking that me and my son will catch it. Any body got any self soothing tips? It's ruining my sleep, and quite frankly the panic attacks are driving me insane
