marcysmith1581 I think I know how you feel. It's frustrating! I wish I had some witty saying to make you feel better but I don't. It happens that way over and over for me. We change up my meds and I'm fine for a little while then it seems like the anxiety gets worse and more often so we change my meds again. It's a vicious cycle. 12 hours 12 minutes ago

dlach It certainly is tough. I go through the same thing fairly often....for me now I'm focusing on challenging myself and going to social events and being very active in that situation. For me anyways its a boost to be successful. Try some new things and try challenging yourself! Nothing crazy start small but when you are successful it only builds your positivity. 11 hours 57 minutes ago

angelwings Newbie here .. I suffer from a lot of anxiety. I've gotten to the point where I've become too cumfy in my own company in my home. I'm fairly new to my area but can't meet new people or make friends because I'm afraid of judgement, of letting anyone 'in', rejection, abandonment - all the usual. The only times I feel "safe" are if I'm just out running errands etc, or with one of my (very few) friends, or at my DBSA support group meeting. I'm getting very lonely yet can't push myself past my comfort zones. I'm wondering what some of you do to... Show more 1 month ago

ibdanny83 I suffer from anxiety and I am in a new city, I DREAD going out any making new friends. At work were its "safe" I feel that i have to keep conversations short because people might not want to talk to me. I feel when coworkers cross me in the hallway and they don't say "good morning" its because they don't like me. I also feel that getting to know people takes energy that I don't really have. I have gotten so comfortable with myself that I feel better being alone. But I know I'm kidding myself. In order to really be happy I need to make more... Show more 2 weeks ago

Jhereg If you're not in the PTSD group here you should definitely see if someone there can help you with that end of things! Wish I could but I've never experienced that type.

I'm sorry to hear you're not getting support. But it's great that you are taking steps to make changes in your life. However things turn out, with your marriage and other parts of your life, all you can do is try. Try the best you can, and if some broken things can't be fixed, it might hurt but it's ok.

Best wishes.
