Hello all, this is my first post on here. I go by Che, 20yrs.
I suffer from depression and anxiety, but anxiety for me is worse. I take no medication for either. The negative experiences I had with medication back when I was 16 have turned me off of meds of sorts. Basically my anxiety is paranoia I suppose. I get real nervous when I run around my neighborhood, seeing the same car twice freaks me out, heart starts beating like crazy whenever I'm in a new social setting, get those "someone's following me" feelings, etc etc.
Anywho, I just wanted to introduce myself. Knowing that you all probably have had similar experiences is comforting since my support system is limited--none of them have suffered with anxiety.
Hope to talk to you all soon,
