Default Hello from the UK
Hi, I'm Gill. I'm here because I need all the help I can get lol

I'm 40, female and I started my own mental health support forum in December of last year. It wasn't intended I just kind of fell into doing it because one I was a moderator on one that wasn't doing too well and I was encouraged by other members to start my own. When the owner of the site decided to close it before Christmas I was kinda thrown head first into actually doing it.

I'm married, no kids. I've had Crohns Disease since I was 12 yrs old. I'm also a full time carer for my paralysed mum. I suffer from ptsd from childhood illness, anxiety, panic and some agoraphobia. I started the forum because I like to help. I have 4 cats and 2 guinea pigs and i'm a huge lifelong Liverpool FC fan

Nice to meet you all!

Welcome, Gill
I hope you will find all the information you need here and many new cool people all the same.
Would you mind explaining to me what the Crohns disease and ptsd is? It doesn't ring a bell.

Hi Eden yes of course. Crohns Disease is an inflammatory bowel disease, its autoimmune. I had my colon removed in 1997 and have mostly been well since, just 1 surgery since. PTSD is post traumatic stress disorder, I am leaning that my anxiety is a result of trauma as a child from being so sick and having to live with a serious chronic disease and its symptoms/procedures/surgeries

Hope that sheds some light for you

Hi, Welcome to TAZ.

I have alos suffered from anxiety / panic attacks and did for about 7 years solid ( the panic attacks are still here in a way but i guess it always will ) So i kow how you feel.

With panic attacks it's not always a thing to get over it, but its all about managing it when having a panic attack. Stay strong
