I found this website and immediately made an account. Being able to talk to other people about anxiety is a big plus especially since I feel so awkward talking about it with family or friends. I've read through other anxiety forums but I've always had this irrational fear that someone I know might my posts so I never made an account. This is the perfect way for someone like me to talk to talk to other people about anxiety.
Right off the bat I got a little anxiety during the sign up process. I was struggling to pick a username because I felt that that I was going to be judged on my username. Finally I hit shuffle on my iTunes and picked the first song title that fit. It was solved but this was a general concern of mine. I had to come up with a solution for it. Why was that feelng there in the first place?
I just wanted to document those inital thoughts. I look forward to making use of this.
Had a great day today! I went out to have my professional license documents sorted out and decided to visit my old university for kicks with my friend Sam. Sam was decent company, the faculty was really nice. I had a lengthy conversation with an all professor about my anxiety and about meditation etc.
The best was when I we walked along the corridor and my old statistics teacher ushered me in her classroom when I waved at her. She introduced me to her class proudly as one of the few who passed the board exam. I was flushed but I appreciated it. I have to admit, it was nice.
Had some anxiety peppered here or there but I managed to ignore it. I hope this will go on.
For the rest of the day I just hung out with Sam.
