Hi everyone, I am 31 years old, and I just discovered this website yesterday after doing an google search about schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression. Wow, that's a lot! The more I hear about symptoms of anxiety, depression, and delusions associated with schizophrenia, the more I realize that I suffer from those illnesses. The symptoms, although probably ranging from mild to moderate, are there unfortunately.
Social life: I have none. Partially because I have to devote a lot of time to my schoolwork, and partially because it's hard for me to make friends. I have tried to join student groups on campus and try to make friends, but it hasn't worked.
Anxiety: I don't experience the panic attacks associated with anxiety, but I do experience constant worry and anxiety about homework, social situations including family gatherings. I worry so much about homework that I often end up turning in my assignments late.
There you go! Heavy stuff, I know, but no one else is willing to hear about it. I can't seem to be allowed to talk about it except here.
