I’m Gemma, a student in my early twenties, from Scotland. I’ve had social anxiety disorder for as long as I remember, and also have episodes of severe depression. Both have greatly impacted upon my life. This blog documents my struggles with my mental health and my efforts to overcome/ progress with my anxiety.
This blog serves as a place for me to vent and share my thoughts and feelings, and also to give an idea of what it’s like to live with social anxiety disorder and depression. I hope it will also make fellow sufferers feel less alone and possibly educate some people about these issues. I can hopefully share things that have helped and not helped with aspects of either condition.
Feel free to ask me anything about living with social anxiety disorder, depression, anything else I’ve written about on this blog, about myself, or something completely random here.
