Anxiety Support

Breaking silence

I've been in the shadows for some time, reading messages but never responding, and not putting up any messages myself. I did have a presence on this forum a while ago but deleted my account when things became unpleasant, and my own life was so bad that I couldn't bear to read all the bitterness. I was previously ArdenX but I've rejoined with a new name. I've been in a pretty dark place for a while now, but now I'm feeling strong enough to dip a toe in and say hi. I've been off work with stress for a lot of 2013, but with support from my family and a few really good friends I feel I can get back to work - I just have to find the inner strength to tackle the horrible bullying culture in my office. I've also started taking Citalopram and I am finding it really helpful, I am no longer tearful and anxious all the time.

Anyway, this is just a little note to introduce myself, and I may soon feel able to join in the chat etc.
