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.
