I just joined and wanted to express my appreciation for the fact that this site even exists. I think my anxiety was somewhat unfounded and being on this site and reading the posts made me realize that so many people in the world have things so much worse than I do. I have anxiety over a person in my life who is abusive and has tried to terrorize me and my family. Anytime this person calls or shows up unexpectedly, I get paranoid thoughts and am very anxious and can't seem to control the crazy thoughts and scenarios from running through my mind of what could happen if things got worse. Then I realized that so many people are dealing with bigger issues and I should feel lucky that I'm not in any real danger, just an angry person who is in pain and is acting out and lashing out at those he blames for the decisions he made in his life. I feel lucky that I don't have it as bad but at the same time want to reach out to and offer support to others who I know are going through much worse. So glad I found this site.
