Hi all, I'm a newbie to this group, but certainly not a newbie to anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety and agoraphobia. I look forward to meeting, sharing, and learning from everyone here. I hope I can help and support all in this group as well. A little about myself, I'm 54, divorced mom of 2 grown children. I started having anxiety and panic attacks in my teens. They didn't last long at that time. I went many years with very little to no anxiety or panic attacks until 8 years ago they came back with a vengeance. I've been in therapy and medication since. I go to a nearby clinic that is close enough for me to drive to. It's been a revolving door of therapists, social workers and interns. I've seen 10 different therapists in 8 years, and never got the therapy I need, I've stayed because it's comfortable. I finally looked into seeing a psychologist who specializes in anxiety. I found one, but now have to get up the courage to make that phone call. I know I can do it, but any encouragement I can get would be greatly appreciated.
