I struggle with anxiety, panic disorder, and depression on a daily basis but my biggest problem right now is anxiety/panic attacks. I have suffered with this condition for many many years. Im 40 years old, married and I have two children. My husband works while I stay home with our boys. I couldn't work if I wanted to because of the severity of my anxiety so I barely leave the house. I want to connect with others who understand what I'm going through and who are supportive, kind, and caring.

      I understand. Home is my safe space. I was a lot like you when my kids were small. I did work with a therapist to help me develop coping skills.

      I couldnt understand why I was so scared to go to work with having add n depression made it so hard. But I am so hard on myself for not being more productive. I feel like a loser.

        @Donnamaria Please don't feel like way. Depression can take a tool on your mental health takes baby steps to a better mental health. Try using tools like yoga, breathing exercise, take a walk and meditation. Whatever works for you. Try to ground yourself. 😊

      Yep. I’ve had anxiety for as long as I can remember. I have been writing down and watching what makes it worse. Trying to literally live in the moment. I stay productive. That helps. Even if it’s just organizing one drawer or one spot on the counter. For me, with my a.d.d. & diagnosed ocd, being productive and accomplishing small things feel good. Every one is different but it’s good we can remember that others understand.

      Hello I understand what you are going through. My anxiety has gotten worse especially when I am at work. I am mostly alone. And I'm the only girl. There are times that I don't want to go to work especially when I'm on my period my anxiety gets too high. And I have depression. What works for me, going for a walk, breathing, yoga and meditation and painting. 😊

      I feel most comfortable working from home, I found a awesome work from home job. It would also be difficult for me to go out and work ❤️

      Hi there! You’re at the right spot for support! I also suffer from anxiety/panic. One thing I’ve been trying to do everyday is listen to positive affirmations every day on YouTube ❤️ it’s good to have helpful reminders that we aren’t just our anxiety ❤️
