Greetings


Hi! I am a brand new member of this forum. I am 44 years old. I have struggled with severe depression and intense shyness (or social anxiety, if you will) for as long as I can remember. I am also a survivor of severe emotional child abuse from a parent, though I don't want that to define my life. Thank you.

Hey smalldarkcloud, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

Welcome. So how does SA affect you on a daily basis? I suffered from severe anxiety as a child (somewhat better as an adult now) and abusive parents. Not a good combination for somebody's mental health. But things can improve it takes work though and isnt easy
