I decided to join here as I thought I may be able to relate with this site and its members. I dont have anxiety attacks, just normally low level anxiety which I used to label as stress. However I noticed that it can have the effect of making me emotionally freeze a bit and have a shut down to some degree. Mostly I would have anxiety about being around certain others depending on the situation. Making myself go places is sometimes a limitation but in general Im ok.

I am quite a calm and rational person so I may be able to offer support and advice to people on here.

Thank you for your support and comments. Im a bit reserved anyway with stangers and cautious with some others. Rather I will feel out a situation with others before engaging myself so much. If I keep to myself more it is bacause Im preserving my integrity of being.

Welcome! I think it's great of you to seek support and give support even if you aren't in a state of crisis, I think so many of us (myself included) wait until we are in crisis mode to start working on the issues that contribute to our anxiety and/or panic, so good on you for being proactive about your mental health. Sounds like maybe you struggle with some slight social anxiety, is it typically around acquaintances and co-workers rather than friends or family?

ps: I've seen enough of Chelsea's hateful and hurtful blogs and posts towards others on here. I have seen what she's all about,
In fact anyone who's been on this site for years now has seen it. She is vile. I am so sick of people who do not have anxiety and are bored, and come here to play with people's emotions!! Really, really sick of it!

Oh wow..another English man joins and Chelsea is chasing again.
Chelsea does not even have anxiety. Plus she says she's 20 something, but the truth is, she's in her late 40's and is not attractive.Definitely manipulative.
I realize you don't have a life besides coming here and seeking some people who you want to believe your lies and you want to need you. But seriously Chelsea, go find a life elsewhere. Quit preying on people. Especially English men. This will be, or 5th one? Still trying to replace the one that didn't want you years ago, eh?
I have no problem exposing the liar you are. Don't even care if it get's me booted..tired of seeing scammers like you hurting those who come here because they're already in pain.You are pure evil.

Welcome to AT.

maybe feeling emotionally shutdown is a normal feeling when someone is too stressed?
I do feel emotionally shut down when im too weary and too stress out .If im too stressful my defense was to "shrug it off" and said to myself" to just FECK IT" go on with my every day like if I couldnt find solutions.
You said youve got anxiety when you were being around to certain things? maybe you were not comfortable to be around in that area so you have reasons NOT to be there,maybe dont go near there?
Lastly,set or better yet make a plan to sit back and relax if you like to go to places then do it.We have saying" all work and no play makes us...(burnt out).

Im glad you found the site....such a nice of you to offer support and advice...its an act random of kindness.

again welcome to AT.
