Anxiety Consultation

I've been busy with life lately. Life is going well. I'm certainly not anxiety free and I still avoid some situations, but I have been feeling less anxious lately.

I went to a center for anxiety last week and got an initial consultation. The place is a great research center that I went to three years ago. I didn't follow through enough with them last time, but I think I'm ready to follow through this time. It was scary to talk about myself for so long, but I don't feel like I'm uncomfortable with or avoiding the idea that I have social anxiety anymore. I've even talked in depth with a friend about my anxiety. She says she doesn't see it, and she's very supportive of me. I think this is the biggest step forward that I've taken, feeling a little more comfortable with the anxiety, with who I am.
