    Hello everyone. I have just joined the forum. I have been living with PTSD, anxiety disorders, and depression for a while. I have had mixed success with counsellors, and a recent disappointing experience with my current one has probably been the impetus to come here. I feel the need to connect with a forum where I can feel safe and supported, with understanding and without platitudes!

    Hi Arabesque and welcome to the forums and this is a great safe place to post with great support from people who have gone through some of the things you have.I am sorry it didn't work out with your current counselor.Finding the right one canake the world of difference.Connecting with people on here is a great way of filling a gap there.
    Take care,
    Mark.

    Hi Arabesque, welcome! Yes connecting with people who understand is also the reason I've joined this forum. I have anxiety, contamination fears and ocd. The list of my anxiety triggers has been growing longer and longer. I've been struggling to find suitable treatment so I understand how you feel.
