I am new here and feeling anxious


I do not know how this works or what to expect but I just feel anxious about everything in general. I cannot get it to stop 😖 If anyone would like to just introduce themselves, that’d be great.

Hello! Yes I do meditation with my therapist and I have “Headspace” which is a meditation app. I will be using that shortly to help me. Nice to meet you.

Hi amcfemale :) Welcome to a forum filled with others who feel like you..

My name is Agora1 which I thought was appropriate after spending 5 years

of my life in my home because of my fears. Fear of what? I didn't know.

Everything scared me.

Besides medication and therapy, I eventually found tools that I could use that

started lowering my anxiety episodes. I re-read Dr. Claire Weekes' book on

"Hope & Help for Your Nerves" I watched her videos on YouTube. She explains

what makes us feel this way and how we can overcome our fears by not fighting


Today, I am free again. I am here to pass my success forward and to let you know

that Anxiety does not have to be a lifetime sentence. I'm glad you joined this

amazing forum. It's going to be okay. :) xx

Welcoming to the community! You and I joined on the SAME day! Freaking awesome ☺💛

Hi, I was looking up about stomach problems and found this site and just joined. I have lots of anxiety and recurrent major depression, sleep problems, and other health problems. I isolate but keep busy playing games or sleeping, watch movies but still nervous. So sometimes it's so much help just to even have a few short sentences from someone, to talk to another human that understands. Thought I'd say hi and hope you can feel better soon.

Hi and welcome to the forum. 😊

You’ve made a great step.

Hi. I’m pretty new here, too. I can’t offer much help, since I’m going through stuff that I don’t know how to handle either, but I want to make sure you know that you’re not alone. Not even close.

Hi! I just joined today looking for support. I'm not able to give suggestions that might help yet as I'm still trying to navigate this myself. I hope you find relief soon.
