Re: Lost sense of self?
You came to the right place, their are many people here that feel that way.
I am 32 and only in the last 3 years have realized...... I know my name is Caytie, but I don't know who I am. I know I have a great mask of what I want to be or want people to see, because I don't even know the real me.
I started on meds for panic attacks (klonopin) almost 2 years ago, and a month ago- lexapro for depression adn general anxiety. I feel really good right now but I am still trying to figure who I am, what do I want.
The only thing I am good at and can stick to is being a mother. Every other aspect is a fog in my life. Day to Day is how I do it. I get scared, lonely, cannot pick a good man, so I end up with one that makes me worse. Thankfully I have always been smart enough to keep the losers I pick away from meeting my children. I never keep them long, the few I have had. Now, I have been boyfriend free for over a year. Because my dr said, I cannot have a good relationship until I get better. And, I have no friends because that is a whole different issue.
So, I wanted to tell you this summed up short story because you are 20. YOUNG!!!!! And, you are already accepting the facts that you need help, so I hope when you are way before turning 32- you know who you are and can have a happy successful life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
