    Hey all!

    My name is Maureen. Some of you may remember me as northstar1991 from the social anxiety support site. I decided to join this site because it seemed like a friendly place! I'm 21 and have lived in NY all my life. I currently work at the community college I attended and am planning on going to a 4 year school for social work.

    As for my anxiety, it's been getting better but it's always there. My anxiety makes it hard for me to make small talk, talk to strangers, make friends, and form relationships. I've tried some medications, some worked and some didn't. I haven't taken medication in years though because it's really only a temporary fix to the problem. I've also seen a few therapists and I really liked the last one I saw. Therapy helps a little bit, but I think I need to put myself out there more. As hard as it is, the only way to really get over your fear is to repeatedly face it.

    Not a sunrise, but a galaxy rise
    A morning filled with 400 billion suns
    The rising of the milky way"

    We will one day venture to the stars" -Carl Sagan

    Hi! I like your username--not sure if it's from the Jerry Spinelli book but I loved that story in high school = )
