21 female whos new to this forum. I get mild depression because of a physical disability but also anxiety in certain situations. Its not very often so I'm wondering whether this is normal or not.I think I adapt my lifestyle to what I find stressful and worrying because I don't go out a lot apart from work, shopping with family and the odd friend.
New things will make ne anxious like a new job. I'm fine now but I found the learning process very stressful and always think the worst. I can get over worried about work sometimes but I am comfortable now.
For example I will be very anxious/shakey before Doctors appointments (maybe due to the unknown) because I'm very self consious.
I'm not that independant, took me a long time to be comfortable walking around my local town as a teenager and getting buses etc.
On trains I will have to double check that I'm on the right train all the time. (I dont get trains a lot but I'm quite capable) I just try to get direct trains otherwise I have to research a lot beforehand. I did pass my driving test but I find I get to anxious to drive in the unknown.
I don't go out a lot because I worry a lot about what people think of me. spend a lot of time by my self! I'm only comfortable with friends I've known for a while and find it difficult to talk to new people.
