    Hi. I’m a newbie & happy to now be part of the Beyond Blue community. Heightened anxiety about covid has led me here. During decades of managing depression I know that having a support team, not going solo, plays such an important part in my getting ‘through’. So, welcome Beyond Blue on line forums & your community 🙂 to that team 👍

    Hi Zentangles

    (Sidenote: cool username, one of the most creative I've seen so far)

    Thankyou for joining our community, and sharing your story. Doing so takes a lot of courage so we appreciate that. It's things like this can inspire and motivate others to share their stories, come to term with things, and keep moving forward. And you are right- things take time and a good support network. The BB forums are a great place to expand your network and find out how to make the most of all the supports you have around you. We are glad to be a part of your support team!
