Hi there, I'm a rather anxious person, mostly on the social level, and am trying to get out more and do more. its tough for me to figure out where to start changing things, and i'm back to planning my weight loss, but its hard to do other stuff.
I'm a socially anxious person, i have a hard time making friends (i don't remember how), and i'd love to be out more and meeting people and maybe get a great boyfriend at some point but i just can't figure out how to get out of my self and do anything--i live inside my head too much.
anyhoo, i guess it'll be great to talk with you guys and see if we can help each other out. all the best to everybody.

Hello newbie here, still trying to get around this site. I just created my own little anxiety by joining 3 other sites like this one so know it's what one is the best and easiest for me. I have a medical fragile 4 year old who had a cardiac arrest and was on life support (ECMO) 2x in 07 & 08, she is at risk for a sudden death event (yep I have some anxiety issues) My goal is to log on at least once a week to check in. Hope everyone is doing well. When I have some more time I will try and read more on the post. By the way does anyone do EFT?
Welcome, EdenBronze! It's great that you've joined our super understanding group of friends! Alot of us know what those panic attacks feel like and we can sympathize with you all the way. Visit our posts and make yourself comfy, as you are with caring friends who are here to help you lessen that stress.
Hello all, I just wanted to introduce myself. I was glad to see this team. I have suffered with anxiety issues off and on my whole life for years I didn't know what it was.
About five years ago I have a bad episode and my Mother insisted I see a doctor. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression and the doctor put me on medication. I improved and was able to get of of the medication after only a year.
I used to have panic-attacks and it had been years since I had one until my daughter was diagnosed with a birth-defect in July of 2008. I don't remember how many I had last year (I do not think it was many) but since my son was born in December I have had two.
I have started having trouble sleeping again. My mind just won't shut down when it is time to sleep. By the time I do fall asleep it is time for the baby to wake up and eat. I am breast feeding so it is not a quick process, even if he goes right back to sleep.
I need to start using my de-stressing techniques again. If I can find time to do them. I would work out to relieve it but I am so exhausted from lack of sleep I just can't find the energy.
Got to go the baby is awake. I will try to start blogging about it maybe that will help.
