Hi guys well I’m 22 struggle a lot with anxiety, especially social anxiety. Currently on sertraline and have been for nearly 2 years now. My anxiety is set of a lot over what people think, people taking bad about me, and not being good enough. My anxiety gets in the way of me sticking up for myself and that’s what I’m working on at the moment, I’ll let people say what ever or have them talk about me and then have a panic attack about it and keep it to myself. But I’m trying to stand up for myself when this happens and give my thoughts as when I do try I end up having a panic attack and end the conversation. Ashh

mod edit: removed medication dosage

    Welcome aboard, Ash! Really glad you found us and it's good to see you posting. There are a lot of folks here who deal with anxiety day-to-day, among other things, so we can relate.

    Just a small thing: I edited your post to remove the dosage of setraline you gave. Talking about medication and mentioning names of drugs is totally cool, we just have a guideline around not specifying dosages so we don't get people self-medicating based on forum advice. :3
