Good Morning Maz, another great question.
My own pain and experiences are what make me who I am today, and for me to bring some positive meaning to them, I need to share them. Even if my story helps just one person, it will be worth it. So here I am a member of this wonderful family that supports me as well as I support each of the family members.
YES.....Anxiety is hell but it does IMHO build character and strong individuals

I have definitely been changed, for the better and the worse. Better because I'm more compassionate and understanding of other people, I'm much more patient and feel stronger within myself. Most importantly, I've got a much deeper faith and that has made a tremendous difference in my life.
For the worse, I'm far less social, don't have any friends and stay to myself alot more. I am starting school on Wed., so maybe I'll become a bit more social during class...we'll see.
Garen...I hope this will make you smile...I am the exact same way with video games, some of them make me way to anxious and I can no longer play them...now the smile part...I am a 42 year old woman and quite addicted to my video games.

Having A/P and learning how to fight it has given me a good part of my life back. I use to love the rush of adrenalin then it turned bad on me but now I'm feeling more like my old self again and building me a new 4x4 rig for this up coming summer fun
Check out you tube on (4x4 trucks) and you will see just what I love doing lots of fun
