New to this forum and truly new to taking care of myself. Really realized I had a problem and became aware of social anxiety more than a decade ago but aside from a very brief attempt at therapy/medication, I've mostly just pushed it down inside me, did as much as I felt ok doing to survive, and let it build until I became a woman in her mid-thirties not doing much with her life career-wise or socially, separated with two kids, and feeling like I'm drowning.
Covid has left me unemployed, my kids have just started school, and while I sit on a waitlist for therapy, I am taking small steps for self-management of my anxiety, including checking out this forum.

Let's do this.

Welcome. Sorry things aren't going well.
