Hampshire Support

I would like to dedicate this group to finding like-minded people in the local area. I think many of you will agree that your struggles are less daunting if you have someone who understands you. About me: I have recently moved to the area and found that my PTSD and Anxiety symptoms are slowly returning but I do not have much support here. Although my partner does his best, he really doesn't understand it. About the group: My aim is to just get local people in touch with one another, maybe find some common ground. I would like to be able to set up meet ups eventually but hey, one step at a time! I hope that others will find some comfort here.

Anxiety, Depression, Loneliness ...

This is about depression and anxiety, worry and feelings of guilt. Sometimes this world can be a lonely place, and the felling that no one cares or understands how you fell. Felling Lost, Confused and Indecisive can make you fell what's the point of being here trapped. Also I have discovered that an issue I have since a young age still here and I'm aware of it now, it makes more sense. It's called - Body Dysmorphic Disorder - http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/body-dysmorphia/Pages/Introduction.aspx An eg: ocd/obsession + anorexia it can be similar to body dysmorphic disorder.

Chat n meet group Berkshire/South East

Chat here. Chat together. I will organise a space where we can meet up, and maybe run this like a supper club - meet eat n chat. Only rule is we all accept each other, I say that as I have been cared for but never truly accepted with my depression. Anyone from anywhere could come. Lets chat here first then if it looks good we'll meet.
