Hello everybody! 

you can call me Vi. I'm 21, she/her with anxiety 

Found this and thought it was the best thing ever - totally what I need since I struggle to open up to people I know. Looking forward to getting to know everybody!  :3

    Hey Vi @Violet0613 it's great to have you here!! My name is Elle, I'm 18 and I have anxiety as well. It's great that you're talking about it here.

    I love it too @Violet0613, found it ages ago and thought it was a perfect fit for my signature!

    It might also be interesting for you to know that the mix also run group chats every night between 8 and 9.30pm, most of the people you meet on the boards also go to chat regularly. You can find them here: https://www.themix.org.uk/get-support/group-chat :)

    Thank you for your help! that was one of the things that urged me to register. 

    I was disappointed when I realised I only missed it by an hour! am planning to join tomorrow. 

    kinda confused about the specifics tho? how do I actually join? any links?

    I find the best way to join the group chats @Violet0613 is to type "bit.ly/GroupChatDirect" (wwithout quote marks) into my browser (chrome works best but any will work) and that will put you straight into chat. It will sign you in as a guest and it's up to you whether you stay as a guest or you make an account. Making an account will allow you to have a username and profile picture which is saved every time you use chat. 

    I'll probably be around in general chat (GC) tomorrow, hopefully see you there!! The support chat will be open too if you need to speak about anything that you're feeling or get something off your chest :)

    Hiya Vi, it's great to have you join! I go by Anchor in chat, I'm 20 and also female :) 

    I don't have any official diagnosises but I'm in contact with my GP about diagnosises etc. 

    I might not be in chat for the next few days but I'm usually quite a regular. Hopefully will see you around though!

    Welcome Vi. This is a great place to get some confidence in seeking support else where too. Some people find it easier online and annouymous so it is great place!
