    Hello! I'm Emily from Minnesota, USA.

    I love traveling, thrifting, volunteering, trying new vegetarian/vegan foods, and hanging out with my family (including one adorable mutt)! :rolleyes:

    I have lived with GAD my entire life, but wasn't diagnosed until about 15 years ago (I'm 41).
    My family of origin includes a Mom diagnosed with agoraphobia, depression, panic disorder and suspected borderline personality disorder (BPD).

    Years of therapy have helped me better understand and live with GAD. I have learned many tools, but need to use them more regularly (meditation, not scheduling too much in one day, and practicing better sleep hygiene). I have occasional bouts of insomnia when I'm not managing my anxiety well, which as many of you know leads to more anxiety, which leads to more insomnia :mask: ....

    See you in the forums! o_O
