Hi everyone I am new here. I suffer from panic disorder, social anxiety, bipolar and depression. Just looking for some support. It was hard for me to sign up for this group.

Hi loozyjb, it may have been hard for you to sign up for this group but you actually took that first step forward in getting the help and support you need. We all are afraid to step out of our comfort zone but when we do, we open doors that permit us to not be alone.

This is about an amazing forum with men and women who like yourself suffer from mental anguish. We care for each and every person who becomes a part of our virtual family. We comfort, we understand and we share life's ups and down on a daily basis.

Your journey may be different than mine but the bottom line is we all feel the same pain.

I'm so glad you decided to sign up. Looking forward in sharing our journey. :) xx

I know that it is hard but every little thing that you do will make you stronger and help you with this illness. We all understand what it’s like to feel this way. It is awful but you have taken one of many steps and good things will happen!

trapis, I like your response. :)

I sometimes attend a bipolar and depression support group in my area. I found it online. I've found it very helpful. I'm not bipolar, I suffer from anxiety and depression at times.

I am sorry to hear you are having anxiety and depression. I have found that taking magnesium (magnesium malate is best) and ginseng helped me a lot w both, they calm the mind body and spirit and get rid of sticky negative thoughts the loop around in the mind. Also, getting outside, laying on the grass to get grounded and breathe in fresh air, looking at stars, these things help a lot too. Our environment help or hurt our mental health and physical health. Speak aloud positive truths to counteract the negative thoughts and things said to us. Also, Volunteering helps us get our of our own misery to help others, which helps us. Call those negatives a lie and correct them to yourself. Protect yourself from those who put that added stress on you and go out and do new challenging things, take classes, go t meetups. Learn new things, meet new people, it will get you out of the pit. Hope this helps you, blessings!
