Generalized Anxiety Disorder
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
Hi. My name is Carla. I’m 46 from Massachusetts. I was diagnosed in 2010. Back in the 70s and early 80s it was “just a phase”. My issues go way back to my childhood and it explains alot of why I am the way I am today. My days can consist of highs and lows. Depends on the day. I’ve learned to take 1 day at a time, if I dont I will lose it. Sometimes getting in the shower is a chore. Sometimes I will go 4 days without showering gross I know but I dont care. I do but I dont. A simple task to some people is exactly that. Simple. For me? Its overwhelming. It can take days for me to do it. If I dont ask someone else to do it for me. Sometimes I can be in a great mood but it can change just like that. It’s kinda funny because people look at me like shes so pretty and fun how can she have all these problems? Because behind this smile is a girl that’s hurting, and hurting bad. Sometimes I will put on make up or do my hair or wear something nice to feel better about myself. Sometimes it works sometimes it’s an epic fail. Then theres times of extreme loneliness. I isolate a lot. That started in early childhood. I dont deal well when bad things happen I panic. I have a hard time filling out paperwork and sending it back i have a hard time dealing with ppl on the phone or in person. Again it depends on the day. I’d love to chat sometime. I think I need that. Nice meeting you all.
