Hi, I am a student of mental health counseling and I have been assigned to join a support group to learn group dynamics. I chose this group because I have suffered from pretty severe anxiety in the past. However, I have been able to reduce my symptoms so that they hardly surface anymore. At any rate, I'm hear to learn provide support. One thing I've learned so far is that the people in this group are not so much looking for treatment as they are looking for support from other people with the same problems. As such, I would like to offer my support to all of you!

I'm very alone in my life. I have always been. Even though I've tried throughout the years to make friendships and connections it's never worked out. I'm feeling more fearful to reach out to people and have people in my personal space because of my past traumas. It's hard to go out in public and be around people in general. I don't want to have to deal with it anymore.
I have a lot of anxiety over an upcoming situation. I hate my anxiety the most of all my problems, and it's the only problem I am embarassed by. I think that's partly because it is much harder to hide than depression and loneliness. Soon I will be going away for the first time with a new job and I will be living at sea more or less completely isolated from people and society for several months....
