After 4 years of trying other medications to no avail, I am back on Trintellix and doing better. In the past few years, I have seen 3 therapists, 2 of whom have said I "don't really need therapy." The providers in my area are limited and out of my price range. I wouldn't say I'm antisocial or agoraphobic, but I really don't have friends in my life and "putting myself out there" gives be debilitating anxiety. Now that I feel my life is a bit more organized as of lately, I am looking to broaden my support system and this site seemed like a good as any starting point.

Welcome, I hope this site serves you well, I has for me. There is allot of support here. Great starting point, I hope to get to know you better

I just joined as well. At the very least, it seems like a good place to vent. Seems like there’s plenty of people to offer words of encouragement too. Hang in there.

So glad to hear you have found something to help you. Hopefully you can find a therapist that helps you work through the anxiety, I know this can be so overwhelming and life changing. There is hope though I have been able to get to a place where I can cope with things without medication so keep searching for a good counselor. So glad you are stepping out and getting a support system! -Rachel

Thank you for the motivation!
