Hello. I am 35 and have had anxiety and mild depression for years. I have found it a very difficult subject to talk about for fear of ridicule and non sympathy. I have been told for years by people closest to me just to not worry about things and they will be O.K. But i end up feeling frustrated and hurt that the people closest to me dont understand. But I love to vent my thoughts and feelings so hopefully here is somewhere I can without feeling bad about it.
