I just wanted to say hello and welcome to the group. I noticed a lot of new members who I haven’t had a chance to reach out to.
I joined about 3 weeks ago when my anxiety was at the highest it’s ever been in my life. I needed an outlet, somewhere to go where others would understand, comfort, relate, offer coping skills that worked for them, and not judge. This was just the place and I’ve already made quite a few close friends here.
I’m doing much better than I was 3 weeks ago thanks to therapy, weaning back on my zoloft, and this group. I still have a long way to go, but I now have hope, moments of happiness, and significant relief from the horrible pain anxiety and depression was causing and still causes on occasion. The saying 2 steps forward 1 step back describes where I’m at in my journey.
We are all a work in progress here and so glad you have made a choice to join us. You have made a big step in a positive direction.
You are cared about here, safe here, supported here, and never alone.
