New and Anxious

Hi everyone. I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself.

I'm Brittany, 21 years old and I was diagnosed with panic disorder & anxiety disorder when I was about 9-10 years old. It's amazing to see a whole community that is completely diverse with so many people that deal with the same things as I have for the longest time.

I've honestly always had the hardest time trying to communicate with anyone about my panic attacks or anxiety and I'm hoping that being apart of this community will change all of that in the most positive way possible!

Hi brithsn and Welcome to the Anxiety Forum. I'm sorry you were diagnosed at such a young age with panic and anxiety disorder. It is very hard for others to understand the fear and symptoms of a chronic condition such as anxiety. This community has men and women of all ages who have learned ways to deal with anxiety as well as ridding themselves of anxiety. It helps in knowing you are not alone. Hearing other's journey in the chapters of their anxiety will help relay to your own journey. You will find different coping skills as well as preventative methods in dealing with the sudden onset of panic and anxiety.

I'm glad you found us and welcome your sharing more of your story with us. We help each other through our own personal experiences. Stay positive xx
