Hi dessi , and thank you for your comment i know just how you feel trying to keep everything to yourself when all you want is to be like everyone else when you try so hard every day and the pain just wont go away and then anxiety on top of it people think theres something wrong with you and run away when your just trying get through it you can't let life stop because of it , Its so hard to learn to slow down but it can be done , Regards Ger
