I don't mean to brag but I wanted to share a little victory of mine, to show everyone here that there's hope. Here it is:
I met a guy on this site over the summer and it's time I finally make a post about it.
Since he first messaged me, we haven't gone a single day without talking at somepoint as far as I can recall, even if just briefly to check in and see how the other is doing. We text every day and also call or video chat whenever we can....he works overnight shifts which makes it difficult, but patience is key. We plan to meet someday and I can't wait.
What I love most about him is that he understands my anxiety and responds to me so well when it flares up. A lot of people in my life respond by getting angry, calling me crazy or saying I'm being completely unreasonable. They clearly don't understand what anxiety is like, but he does. For those of you who don't know, anxiety is: irritability, blowing up people's phones (not in the literal sense), trust issues, and more. He has experienced all of those from me and some way, some how still loves me and has stuck by me. It's almost hard for me to understand how he could.
Especially after I lost my ex and former best friend, this man has assured me that I was not the unlovable one in that situation; that my anxiety doesn't define me and that my empathetic and caring nature as well as everything else I have to offer more than makes up for it. No matter where life leads the two of us, I'll never stop loving him and caring about him.
He's not active on this site anymore, but if he by chance reads this: Thank you for being my personal handler, digital love and best friend. I will always love you
It is so strong. I am thankful that I got anxiety therapy andwas put on pills. Makes my life a lot less miserable than yearsago. But my OCD is somehow intertwined with my GAD andIt's so hard to manage. I'm sick of having anxiety. I want itto go away and have normal life.
Hello everyone I'm pretty new to this online group chat support group thing. I kind of always suffer through anxiety but a little more than usual lately. I recently lost my little sister back in July and because of that I've had to learn to exist in this world without her and it hasn't necessarily can be easy there are times where I am at work and I notice the littlest thing about a guest that...
