Hi Everyone,

My name is Brandon. I am 23 years old, gay, and a fine art photographer and graphic designer in Virginia.

I have always had nerves when presenting things in high school and college. It wasn't until I came out to my family and faced that rejection that I began to develop anxiety.

There have been people who no longer wish to associate with me due to my sexuality. I think that my anxiety is not a fear of embarrassing myself, rather, people discovering I am gay and no longer seeing me as a valid person.

My anxiety has gotten increasingly worse in the past three months. When I am in uncomfortable social situations, I generally am on the verge of tears. Usually over the stupidest and smallest things.

It's hard to find people who understand. Hence me joining this forum.

So hello everyone! :)
