Hello..I'm new here and am looking for a place I can talk about what happens to me with people who understand! I've been dealing with my anxiety and all the quirks and limitations and lessons and so on it brings with it for over 10 years now - long history of different meds, but right now on Sertraline 200mg/day and Clonazepan as needed, although I find this "as needed" to be relatively frequent lately. I've learned a lot about myself over these years and how to cope and strategies, I am able to navigate my days pretty well, but I just get so tired sometimes!! tired of having to always factor in my friend anxiety, which is not well understood to the vast majority of people in my life, but that are so, so, real! I mean, that's ok, i can live with people not understanding, i ahve learned to respect myself...but I wish I could talk about it without sounding so weird!
My biggest difficulty nowadays is dealing with weekends or holidays/vacations, when routine seems to go out the window. Routine is a big saver, although it is also a constraint. It's something I really wish I could "fix".
Now I have 2 children and there are times I wish I could just give in a bit to the anxiety and let it have the best of me, but I can't, I don't let it, because I want to be there for my girls.
Not sure I have a question, just wanted to get to now the platform and introduce myself. Thanks for listening..
