Hey, I am not really sure how this works but I am new here in need of somewhere I can look to where someone gets it. I have anxiety, I figured out that I had anxiety a few years ago however I have been unable to go out and get support mainly due to the fact that how I present myself to the world is as a confident, super chilled person. Not exactly the truth but um...I have started to ramble a bit here. This step is very big for me as usually I chicken out before clicking the sign up button. As mentioned before I am not too sure how this all works but I thought why not just jump in and get a post in.
In my family this subject is sort of ignored so as to not draw attention to the situation. I am not the only one who suffers from anxiety however I am the only one who sees the need to speak out about what I have and what that means. The subject of therapy is very taboo, therapists are not liked by my family and I guess that is why I am on here to and not in an office with a couch. I am hoping to maybe get around to starting therapy, maybe. So, if anyone has any influential words they wouldn't mind passing along my way I would love to hear them. Thanks
