Finally moved out and I'm doing ok


I have my car, my jobs, I can cook... I made an awesome meal tonight.. I feel so complete and proud of myself.

Congrats! Nothing beats independence!

Miles to go before I sleep. Vale.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

Nice one, congrats! I also just moved out and it's fantastic to have my own space and independence.

Nice. Glad you got out of that situation, it didn't sound very comfortable.

Congratulations! It must be exhilarating.

Congrats! this is the reason I have gone back to therapy...I want so badly to move to a different city and have a fresh start on my own. That feeling of independence must be exhilarating...hope I can experience it someday.

Great work!



It's incredible what making a positive change in your life can do for your mental attitude.



Really pleased to hear you're feeling great!

What would happen if you believed that you ARE enough?

Do it!



I moved to an entirely different country and it made such a significant difference. The change and new environment takes your focus away from dwelling on the Anxiety or Depression.

Each day I move one small step closer to doing so. I strongly believe what you say here will be the case for me. Moving will not solve everything...but being on my own, independent and in a much better city than the one I live in now is going to boost my morale and help in so many ways.
