Well, I am new to this site and thanx to a gentlemans' post! My Anxiety overcame my life after losing my job due to the economy. I also came out of an abusive relationship about that time. After that, I noticed changes in me, weird and different. I went from being vibrant, outgoing, and one of the most confident people I knew….To a Hermitt!..Blinds closed, couldnt go to Walmart because I felt like people would see me sweat everywhere, felt like they talked about me. I was afraid to run into to someone and they would ask how Ive been. I didnt attend family functions, birthdays, not even my nephews christianing! I have done everything to avoid family and friends. Its even stopped me from getting a new job. I am an educated person but I let my Anxiety make me feel like I am not.My Strong mother raised me to be strong so when I seen her cry a few months ago due to whats happened to me, I knew I had to try and fight this! I have gotten better. I go to Walmart now, and leave my place. The blinds stay open! I am applying for jobs. My fear is having an Anxciety attack in front of my prospective employer. Im still not attending family fuctions because I am not ready!!!!! Its been 2 years so who knows. I take a step each day. I knew nothing about Anxiety, what to do, what it is, nothing! I began researching for a while. I knew I couldnt afford therapy and wanted info on Natural things that can help. I ran across this site and read a gentlamens' BLOG. That was me! Thats what I need to know! So, This is my Beginning! Small steps. I will not hurt my family any longer, or myself. I deserve to fight back and so do they! I will be posting blogs frequently. I have bought vitamins and going grocery shopping for health foods, and gonna start exercising, but not going to overdue it. Small Steps!
