Panic / Anxiety Disorders - What, Me Worry?

For Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, agoraphobia with and without PD, and all the lovely specific phobias. This board is a room with an infinite number of corners so everyone gets their own to hide in. We have a couple of couches you can hide under too. And closets. Closets are good hidey places. We have several of those. All windows are covered so nobody can see in. Door frames are padded so they don't slam.


If you're suicidal and we suck...

Call a semi-pro. Find help in your area. Many countries and languages, most continents (nothing on Antarctica yet): suicide.org
