I have recently joined ASN but already it has help me understand the overwhelming amount of people with the same symptoms I have, I mean exactly the same. It's strange to hear people discribe their anxiety episodes with such detail, it almost feels like their talking about me. When I read these comments and they sound so familiar I feel sad for them but comforting for me to know I'm not the only one.
Being a borderline agorophibic this is probably the closest I will ever get to therapy. ASN gives me a platform for learning, listening, sharing and caring with a community as concerned for managing their anxiety as I am
Anxiety is a lot more common then people may know, most people think of it as a mental condition and are ashamed to admit to it. I think education and awareness about the symptoms and treattment for anxiety could create an atmosphere of acceptance and relief for people suffering from it
When I try to explain what it's like to have a panic attack people could never understand what it's like, but now I see many people know exactly what it's like.
Thank You ASN
