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.
I have anxiety and so I constantly worry about what people think about me and this has really tested my friendships and relationships. I often do not reply to friends txts and phonecalls because it always leads to an invite to meet up and I am tired of making the same excuses or dropping out at the last minuite. over time I have realised that I need to stop caring about being judged or what people think and would like to meet other people in the same boat as me who would like to overcome this cycle. I was quite into fitness before my anxiety started and would like to go back to it as I know that activity really helps this condition. And I would also like to support somebody else like me who wants to get into activities and fitness:)
I'm struggling at the moment with my depression. Constantly feeling low and alone. I've gone through a lot in the past 2 months with family and being forced out of home to live somewhere on my own that I can't really afford aswell as all the other stresses of bills etc. It would be nice to get out and talk to people who have the same low, alone feeling that I do.
A group for people in Leicester/Leicestershire so we can meet up, have a coffee and support each other. Everyone welcome

I can’t believe I came across this site it’s brilliant...I think it was fate I don’t feel so alone here
I wasn’t sure about this site when I joined up, but I must say I’m really pleased I did, because there appears to be some really lovely, caring people here with loads of time to chat and give you a boost. I find talking online really helpful- especially when you can’t deal with face to face
