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,

"Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles, and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles. Your decision to be, have and do something out of the ordinary entails facing difficulties and challenges that are out of the ordinary as well. Sometimes your greatest asset is simply your ability to stay with it longer than anyone else."
