Hello everyone! I just wanted to go ahead and let everyone in the community know who I am. My name is Hannah, and I have been struggling with anxiety for about 10 years. My anxiety stems from growing up with an emotionally and occasionally physically abusive step-mother. For the past year or so I have begun dealing with symptoms of PTSD from certain traumas I experienced as a child. These symptoms include flashbacks and avoidance behavior. After having multiple daily panic attacks for a couple of months about a year ago, I lost my job. I then lost a long-term relationship and my home. I've had to move twice in this past year. So needless to say, I'm dealing with a lot right now, and I'm excited to have found a community of people who really might understand.
