Hello, I am new :)

Hello everyone I am new here. Hoping to find support as I go through anxiety

I stumbbled accross this website in Google, was doing a little bit of research of something I have noticed has gotten quite worse throughout this year :/

When I speak I tend to stutter now much more and get stuck or end up saying what I want to say wrong by mispronuncing words. Which I read a little on a topic I found here, thats how I found this website.

I have been through physical and emotional abuse with 2 different relationships physcial abuse when I was 16 and emotional abuse with my now ex husband. Sorry for my vent I just think it all has made my anxiety worse since I separated from my husband this year.

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. Look forward on meeting nice people that can share advice with. :)

  • Im doing ok thank you I am glad I found this site been dealing with anxiety for a long time without any support

  • Hiya! Welcome to the site. I'm finding it so helpful and reassuring on here, I'm pretty new here. I really hope it helps you too. I can't imagine how stressful this year mustve been for you. Have you seen any doctors or anything or discussed it with anyone? X

  • Thank you it really has been. Ever since I had my first anxiety attack at age 16 (im 27 now) havent really seen any doctors about it nor discussed it. Im pretty much what you call it alone dont have family well I do but not people I can count with, so we arent really in touch. But I thing I really need to seek some kind of help now as what I mentioned above with my speech is been getting worse :/

  • This sight is great for reasurence and advice , I'm pleased you've found it!

  • Thank you I am really happy I found it too look forward to conversate with other going through the same thing I am. :)

  • You'll find some lovely people on here. The thing we all have to remember is that every small milestone we make is massive and we have to congratulate ourselves on these not criticise ourselves for what we haven't achieved yet x

  • Welcome I'm also new and it's great to know I'm not alone best advice please do go to a doctor don't wait to long best of luck

  • Hi. Often times I have the same problem when I'm anxious and speaking to people, so know that you are not alone.

    What you can do is try mindfulness. Being in the moment and aware of your surroundings, so that your thoughts don't overwhelm you and make you feel worse. The anxiety might be there but you don't have to give it any more ammunition. Just let it be; everything will be alright.

    When you're reading, have you tried reading out loud? I find that it helps me to speak out more easily by becoming more comfortable with my own voice and letting words come out more naturally. Find somewhere quiet and try speaking as you read.

    I hope you can find a doctor to see. Speaking with a professional takes a lot of the pressure off and makes you feel more at ease.

    I can't even begin to imagine what you've been through. But I'm glad you have found this site as I have only recently. People on here care about you and give some really excellent advice that I have found extremely helpful.

  • Separation or divorce can be very scary and cause lots of anxiety. If you have not talked to doctor, you should. First, make sure you are healthy and nothing physical is causing your anxiety. Explain to doctor what you are going through and you and him can decide on a course of action to help you. I think you will start to feel better just knowing you are doing something to help yourself. Unfortunately, anxiety is something that we have to work on by ourselves. Support is great but the work is up to us. It's not easy, but it can be done. stay strong. Hard work but worth it to feel better.

  • i know anxiety makes us obsess about so many random things..and by obsessing on them we sometimes turn them into issues. i am what they call hyper-sensitive and have an obsession with my own health so any time i feel something that doesnt feel right or normal about myself i will obsess about it until it becomes so real to me. it usually happens most when i am going through something stressful. we become very aware of "ourselves" and our actions. i think maybe the stuttering issues you have stem from you focusing on it too much due to the anxiety. i agree with what others have posted about seeking help for this. overcoming your abusive past is a start since that may be the root of your anxiety. and dont feel you have to apologize for venting...that what this place is for. get things off your chest! its not good to hold things in and letting them out can be such good therapy! good luck :)
