Hello to everyone who reads this. I am a twenty year old woman who has been suffering from anxiety for several years now. It made my life hell growing up, especially when I started high school and before I got my first job. I wasn't actually diagnosed with social anxiety disorder, however, until I was 18 years old. I have gone through some talk therapy and it helped a great deal but I still find myself struggling with the anxiety in some areas. I am hoping that joining this site might help to be able to cope with the anxiety better.
