Encouraging each other as we live with anxiety.
Welcome to my webiste and blog. I am Lynn and I have lived with anxiety my entire life, but was officially diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in late 2008. While this website is more about encouragement rather than me sharing my personal story, let me assure you that anxiety has brought me to some very low places since 2008.
During a major change in my life years ago (which resulted in my first mental breakdown), I eventually found my way to blogging and found it extremely helpful. I have always loved writing and I suppose it is therapeutic for me. But more than that, connecting with others who had gone through similar issues was life-changing and helped me through those rough years and helped me to heal. I later struggled with other issues and highs and lows, and I am currently going through the toughest time in my life.
The idea of sharing what is working for me and creating a place where others who struggle with anxiety can come to receive and give encouragement seemed like a fantastic idea. I think it will help me, and I hope it helps anyone who visits this site.
I am not a professional and this website is only for those with anxiety to encourage each other and to share what is working for them. It is not for me, or anyone else, to provide advice or therapy. Please seek out professional help for these things.
I hope you enjoy the site and find connecting with others helpful. Click on the Blog tab to get started!
