I haven't posted in a while and suddenly felt the need to update my status to people I've never met;)
Like many of you, I suffer with panic attacks and daily anxiety which is complicated with agoraphobia. Early this Fall, I finally started seeing a therapist (my third) who actually seems to have an inkling as to how to help me out of my crazy head and into a sane one. Turns out, I am way more screwed up than I thought, lol! (you have to laugh).
I knew I had an anxiety disorder which I have been trying to work through with a number of self-help workbooks. Also, I assumed I had some form of depression - I actually have both major depression and dysthimia (I knew I wasn't as dull as I thought I was;)). Also, she diagnosed me as schizoid
and almost borderline. How I have managed to function this long is beyond me (not that I've been functioning well, but I've been functioning).
I also started working this Fall and as of today quit the job. I feel guilty about
leaving a job after working so hard to get it (I had to go through a multitude of interviews, a one month course and 4 exams), but my mental health was visibly degrading. I obviously bit off more than I could chew, hoping I was in a better place mentally than I really was. Oh well, live and learn.
I hope everyone is doing well and welcome to those of you I have not me yet.
