Newbie with "the works"

Recommended Posts

Greetings, I'm brand new, happy to find the website. 42 year old male, suffered from anxiety/panic/OCD/agoraphobic since 7-8 years old.

In the past, I've sometimes went years in between "bad spells", then have a rough 6-12 months.

Right now... one of those bad times. Reading the posts is comforting.

Welcome. Many of us here are long term sufferers from childhood, similar to what you posted. I remember knowing something was wrong when I was about 7 or 8 too. They hospitalized me for "tests" at that age. I have no idea what the diagnosis was except that we soon moved back to the family farm afterwards. I think it was a better life than if we'd remained in the suburbs where my mom & dad fought all the time. 

Anyway, please keep posting. Lots of friendly and knowledgeable people here.
