New here

Hi everyone

I'm new here so thought I would make myself known . I've suffered with anxiety for many years . It is a very isolating condition , I used to very social , loved music as I was a dancer played guitar but now that has ended because of anxiety . It not only effects you physically but also emionaly and mentally . My joints , muscles ache , my concentration has gone out the window .i do have my good days , sometimes even weeks so they are the times I look forward to and try enjoy that time as best as I can .

  • Hello & Welcome :-)

    Sounds like you have been having an interesting life with the dancing etc and one you can get back again if you want :-)

    Are you getting any treatment from your Doctor for your Anxiety ?

    I would start by going and talking with my GP and seeing what they can offer either medication or Counselling and you have already made a great start by joining this Community with so many people who understand how Anxiety makes you feel and how it can disrupt your life

    Take Care x

  • Hi Lullu

    Thanks for the welcome , I've had a terrible time this Christmas . I've been trying to deal with the anxiety on my own with alternative remedies . Always trying to find new ways to manage the condition with mediation , a ballance day diet , just gave up coffee so going to how that effects everything .in the past I've done counselling , mostly to do with grief and past traumors . I don't drink alcohol or smoke so that is a bonus but sometimes I think I'm restricting myself from many things in life that all I have left is the anxiety . I'm looking forward to chatting to others and hopefully bridging that gap with anxiety and having a life .
