Hi everyone :grouphug:.

I'm a woman in my 20s, I live in Sheffield, I like reading, writing, international cinema, and all kinds of music.

I've been struggling with anxiety from early childhood. I started getting panic attacks as a teenager. I have a severe phobia of death, and am very anxious about my life having no meaning. My anxiety tends to be worse in the Winter so maybe there's some SAD thrown in there for good measure too! :p For the last 12 months I have been prescribed 45mg of Mirtazapine every night. It has helped me, especially during the daytime, to get on with things and enjoy being alive. But at night I'm still having severe panic attacks, not being able to sleep, and being in sincere misery.

I'd like to find a support group in Sheffield or South Yorkshire which has regular meetings. And I'm always happy to make new friends so that we can help each other.

Hugs,

Anxietycat
