I’m Clare, and I’m a college student in the US living with my parents during the summer and about 3 hours away during the school year.
I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety when I was about 10, and I got diagnosed with mild depression last fall.
My mental health takes me on a crazy ride some days. Unfortunately I know some people feel that my anxiety is exhausting to deal with, and I really don’t want to be a burden or nuisance to anyone. I’m afraid I am being ‘too much’ even while reaching out, which in turn makes the anxiety worse. I just need to talk through things sometimes.
Besides all of that, I love spending time with my family and friends, writing, reading, and listening to music.
Thanks for reading my intro post!
