Re: Gp/therapy experiences, please share

I agree with all of the above- especially the bit about writing everything down. I guess it is also making sure you stay with the same doctor and build a relationship with them so at least you feel you can trust them and be open and honest. This may take some time. I still have awful anxiety when vi...

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Just a quick one to say how impressed i am at everything you are doing and involved with- one word 'wow'. It sounds like a positive and productive week so far! I know exactly what you mean about living with parents. I have a close relationship with mine and moved back in after being away-this also c...

Re: Antidepressants,

Hi midnight, I completely understand and empathise with everything you have written. I tried to work on my issues myself but eventually was kind of forced to go to the doctor as my depression turned into insomnia and began to affect my eating. I also hated the idea of AD and yet have generally had a...

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Thanks for your reply Em- it does mean a great deal! :D I just find other people, like you, are so eloquent in their writing. I just blurt it all out on the page, in no particular order. I sometimes forget that not everyone is in my head! Thanks for the advice- sometimes it can be hard, especially a...

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Hi Em, Things have been going in the right direction- thanks for asking. I continue to work on being kind to myself and to manage those not so good days. I'm currently trying to accept the good and bad and be okay with having a bad day or bad night, without completely freaking out and thinking that ...

Hi I have recently been reading about Daith piercing and the Vegus Nerve. There is more research looking at the role of the vagus nerve on mental health.

Re: Social Anxiety.... Advice please!

Hey there, Good to hear from you on here. Em i think that you are saying college is too much of a jump right now- this doesn't mean not ever- just not now. There is no reason why you cannot go to college in the future when you feel stronger. I know the anxiety of feeling that if you push too hard th...
