Hi everyone. I am Samantha and I suffer from OCD and GAD, have been for about 8 years now. I know anxiety is such a challenge to live with on a daily basis. I just have been wondering for all of the other people suffering out there, do you feel alone? I feel so alone in this daily battle a lot of the time. I feel as though people do not know what I am experiencing because I am so good at hiding it. I just want people to know what I am going through. I was hoping to chat with some people who are suffering from similar conflicts and would like to mutually support each other through this.
Come on in, & tell us how you're feeling.I'm feeling hopeful. I've been living with Social Anxiety Disorder and Depression for 40 of my 48 years of life. I finally decided to seek help last year, and am currently waiting to get into the mental health program at Prescott/Russell that is also linked to the Monfort Hospital. I was feeling very frustrated recently because of the health system and the time that it takes to get this type of treatment (expecting to be cured by now). In the meantime, I have been able to go through my insurance to get some therapy sessions, and this gives me some hope.
