Hi, i'm new here. And, at first I created my account because I was on the verge of panicking over a fatigued jaw that I overexerted. But, now that I've kind of sort of calmed down a little bit about that. I just wanted to talk about myself now that I know a place like this exists.

So, I don't even know where to start. I'd like to think health anxiety is my biggest problem, but reall, it's probably my shyness and social anxiety. I've stressed out over the smallest things and I just let it run it's course because i'm too afraid and ashamed to talk about the things that bother. I want to talk to more people and make more friends but i'm too afraid to speak up. There's so much I need to plan for my feature but like a broken record. I just don't know how to express myself. I am 21 years old and I've already missed out on so many things because i'm just so... me, i guess is the best way to describe it.

I honestly just feel like bawling while writing this, mostly because of how my life is going, but also because I found a place like this where I can just talk about this where I couldn't elsewhere. I feel like such a wreck.

Welcome to the site. I remember all those years when my anxiety issues began. Back then I was confused about everything. Had no real idea what was going on with me. Think once the dust settles we start to find our feet more. Look around and see what is out there for us. By way of help. Right now you may not think there is anything at all. Because of how you are feeling. We feel down, we think negative thoughts. We see no clear answers at all. There is help out there. Plenty of it too. Talking might be a part of getting that help. So might not be easy to begin with. But once you find it and settle down it will be all good. You will be glad you began to look for the help. Never give up hope. There is always a road back.

Hi, I know exactly how you feel. I experience the same feelings almost on an everyday basis. I am new to the group too but have already received some support from others and I’m sure you will receive support and great advice too. Things will get better for all of us, don’t lose hope!

Hello and thank you both for your kind words!

I apologize for not responding sooner, on Sunday I finally worked up enough courage to reach out to friends and family for help, and are working on finding somebody to get me on the path of recovery!
