You will receive much support and encouragement and advice also. Please join us on the huddle and on the threads so that we may get to know you. I am so glad you are here!

I'm awfully glad to find this team, I didn't know you existed until just now! I suffer from "General Anxiety Disorder" and "Social Phobia". It's a LOT easier for me to talk via computer than face to face. :) I've had a good therapist help me through a lot if it and I'm on Clonazapam which keeps things under control.
We're pretty sure that the anxiety comes from my ADHD and my inability to interact "normally" with people, though I do a lot better now than when I was younger. But one of the biggest anxiety areas for me is still my weight. It's absolutely terrifying that me, the smart girl, dare to let anyone know that I care about how I look and worse, fail at doing anything about it. But, it does take a fair lot of attention to get these things under control and unfortunately attention is something I have in shorter supply than most people notice.
Oh yeah, except when I'm writing, I can do that forever. ;)
Any ways! That's me. I've been doing very well with my anxiety but I find that trying to lose weight (AGAIN) is making me spin out of control in all kinds of directions.
