    I have anxiety that I didn't know I have.

    I was pretty calm when I was younger. Now I feel like I am anxious about meet people that I know and people I don't know. I don't want to go outside because I don't like too crowd places. I can't really talk without my throat gets tight sometimes. When I talk my words comes out...

    Yes

    I recently wrote a story on here in the group "I think Therapy is a waste of time" and that is because I can't go to someone and talk to them how I am feeling face to face. I get too damn nervous even being around people that I have known most my life, let alone someone who I...

    EP Is Great

    I write a lot about what i'm thinking on here. There is always the risk of someone trolling my stories, but I guess It doesn't matter that much. I know that I don't have to like them or talk to them if I find they are being offensive. It's nice to have a place to put my thoughts...

    I use this site because I feel this is the best

    place for me to vent. It's like my own diary. None of you know any exact information about me. I get to write my heart out, while trying to help others. It's a beautiful website. So with all respect, if you want to make fun of me or have no respect for what I post, please ignore...

    Cheaper Than A Shrink ..hehe

    I am a very verbal/social person and I find that often all I need to do to feel better about an issue is to vent it. I realise though that constantly venting to friends can probably be draining for them, and selfish of me.My ex-boyfriend never use to understand my need to vent. I...

    Heck Yes!

    This is better than previous therapies I've tried. I've done counseling, journaling, meditation and other forms of venting or stress relief. But, this site has to be one of the best! I'm glad to use EP as therapy.

    Ep Is Like Group Therapy

    Really it is!!  Whenever I have an issue I can post about it and get a variety of different helpful perspectives.   I find the feedback so invaluable.  I've learned so much from other EP members.  Thank you all!!!
