Scared and Hopeful.

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am a twenty year old girl( or should I say woman?), and I have had an anxiety problem for as far back as I can remember. Back then, obviously I didn't know that it was anxiety, I just thought that I was weird or crazy or broken. 

I don't want to bore anyone so I'll keep it brief. I haven't been diagnosed by a doctor, because I haven't been to one( too expensive, no health insurance, etc.), but I know that I have an anxiety disorder.

I am really scared because I can't really talk to my friends or family about my struggles because they don't understand. I also know that I can't do this on my own anymore. 

So I've joined this forum, because online support group seems safe and easy to the socially anxious me. 

So hello everyone. I hope we all get something out of this forum and are able to be a little less terrified of the world.

Hello Small and welcome.  I think a lot of people forego clinical diagnosis in this type of situation.    You don't need a doctor to tell you what you already know sometimes.
