Hi everyone, I have just joined today.
I'm from the UK, 19 and I have struggled with social anxiety my whole life. But was only diagnosed in 2019 and this is when it got really bad. I don't know anyone in my life who struggles with social anxiety and a lot of my family doesn't understand and thinks I'm faking it or it doesn't exist.
I have isolated myself since I left school, I never leave my house on my own and have no friends as i struggled to talk to them. Im going to uni in September and I'm hopping being on this site can hep me.
I will be studying psychology which i have a big interest in and I want to help people who also struggled with their mental health, However i need to get control of my social anxiety first before i can help others.
Anyways i hope i haven't complained to much. I'm excited to be here.
