I'm Emzy and I'm a 30 something chick with ABI, PTSD, ADD, Major Panic and Anxiety Disorders and Extreme Social Phobias.
I joined Beyond Blue quite awhile ago but found the whole process of posting in or joining a forum EXTREMELY daunting. There are so many threads that are the same topic, the dates are all over the place, I don't know if I'm posting correctly or if whatever I have spewed onto the page has just gotten lost in cyberland..
I'll try to find a "NEW MEMBERS" forum, but it seems that all the "Newbies" are now old hat and the thread has been going on for months..
I'm like a toddler that needs to be taken by the hand and baby stepped through what really shouldn't be difficult - I know that I am exacerbating and making this way more difficult than it actually is but that's ADD combined with Major Panic and Anxiety, PTSD and Social Phobia for you.
If anybody could steer me to a newbie newbie thread or one that's patiently friendly with a novice like myself...I'd really appreciate that. I have been wanting to reach out for so so long. Things in my world are dark and have been for a while.
I know that Beyond Blue members will be able to indentify, and hopefully in sharing stories of hope and recovery, the site AND the world won't be such a daunting place anymore.
