I am new to this site. I just over the last month finally talked to someone about everything I have been experiencing since childhood. I started to develop anxiety and OCD at a young age. I went through childhood trauma growing up and I have generalized anxiety disorder, situational and social anxiety disorder, and OCD. I started therapy and have so far been to a few sesssions. I feel it's a great way for me to finally talk to someone about my life and to see my perspective with someone else's opinion who is a mental health professional. I have started rapid eye movement desensitization therapy. I have only gone through it once so far, but it already made me internally think about about a few things from my past in a different way. I still have episodes every day of panic attacks and constant thoughts going through my head of any and everything you can think of. It affects my work, my social, and personal life. If anyone needs someone to talk to Feel free to send me a message and I will respond as I am able too. I know how these conditions feel and feeling like no one understands you or thinks you should just "get over it" doesn't help at all. We are all strong on here for what we have been through.
