  • I know Mandy its heartbreaking because I was the same at that age so frightened, but I had and still have the best mother in the world she is my rock, and I know hopefully "not" but if my kids ever have to go through this I'll know what to do to reassure them . it is very frightening at the age I'd love to help them in anyway, would be a great idea Mandy xx

    You've taken a major step. The next one will be easier.

    I love Marvin Gaye. Man oh man was he hot. And um, oh yeah, he could sing too ;-)

  • Ty lizbett lol Marvin gay is a song in charts now lol 😁 great song but cant get it out off my head now ha ha xxx mandyπŸ˜‡

  • Arg that song but I'm glad it helped you.

    I too really feel for the youngest members of this site. My panic etc started when I was fourteen and I felt like I had no one to turn to. My parents were not very good at being assertive with the doc the way I would be for my child these days, and obviously the internet did not exist back then. But even nowadays it is very hard to be young with anxiety and to know where you can get help. If there are any professional health care people on here we need you! Please advise on where younger people can find help , specifically in UK, Ireland, USA and I know we have at least one in Australia.

    Calling any experts please! Make a post to list the support those younger people might try.

  • Well said me too I was 14 my parents ermm no no I thought I was going mad for many years. such a silent illness young ones in this day and age should get support if they feel their parents dont care enough, my eldest child ash has it I was the first one he came too 27 now and still ask me for advice, been to no docs no meds just me n he ok with it xx, it would be nice for expert to join, whether just started with it or had it years we all need reassuring it won't go away ever, just the starters with it I feel for I wanna wrap my arms around them keep em safe , what mother wouldn't do that beats me. Xxx mandy😞

  • Yay πŸ’žπŸ’ž I'm happy for you ! That's an accomplishment, not only getting out of the house but doing a task, like grocery shopping ! It's so cool that you listened to Marvin Gaye to get you through or was singing one of his songs to yourself . Either way, his songs are soothing. This makes me happy & motivates me to at least , finish my homework since I overslept :/....long story . But eh I'm so glad you accomplished this task & have some yummy food & drinks in the kitchen. People truly don't get that we struggle to do daily tasks . I tell some relatives & idk if they get it or not . I struggle going out sometimes too because of social anxiety in certain settings .i have to think positive while doing tasks or at work & Schl. This is such motivation , reading your post ..I'm happy !! πŸŽ‰πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š I'm happy for you ! But yeah , my classes are bare, not many students show & the professor is pretty cool , I'll at least do my homework then come in next class . I missed half the class already :/ lol but I wish that you have many many more moments like that , where you got out of the house & enjoy yourself , even if you truly aren't in the mood , but at least do something in the house that makes you happy😊 You deserve it!! Yay! I love reading positive posts. Thanks for sharing this !πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ’žπŸ’ž
