Hi, all *waving*! I just wanted to introduce myself and say how glad I am to find this board.
I'm a 40 year-old divorced mom of a 7 year-old daughter and a 9 year-old son, and I only realized a couple of years ago that I have probably had an anxiety disorder all my life. On the one hand, it explained so much, but on the other, it involves having an anxiety disorder. I don't have frequent panic attacks, but when I started having them, I didn't know what they were and thought I was losing my mind. Most of the time, it's more like a constant background hum of anxiety that makes it difficult to focus and stay calm at work and with my kids. I started taking Celexa, and it has really, really helped, but I'd love to get to a point where I don't need it, because I hate the side effects.
Anyway, I'm glad to be here, and as I read through the posts, I'm happy to find a supportive place to learn more about how to navigate this.
