I am terrible at these, but I figured I would actually attempt.
My name is Abby and I am 28. I have always thought I had a handle on my anxiety and phobias until my brother got extremely ill.
Now I have panic/anxiety attacks all the time, have physical symptoms that stem from the anxiety and stress.. And am picking up new phobias along the way. This makes no sense to me that it is all getting worse as my brother is finally, and thankfully, making progress to getting better.
If I meet people to talk to who understood about what it's like to live with this, that would be awesome.. Even just having a few new friends couldn't hurt. I'm up for chatting about mostly anything and helping people if I can.
I love my friends, but not all of them are supportive of going through this. I cannot count the number of times I have been called crazy. Ugh.
Hope to hear from some of you!
