Hello to all - I won't say Happy New Year as I know how difficult this time of year can be. I am reading posts and feeling sad that so many of us struggle with just being alive. I am in the middle of counsellor training and know that I will find this work rewarding but also know that I will never be free of bouts of extreme anxiety and depression. Just wanted to say I am finding a way forward which is helping me cope with my life and use my experiences to be of use in this world of chaotic existence. Keep strong all of you - I know how hard it can be.
