There is a good chunk of people that are on here for quite a few hours a day. I wondered why. Most people don't have time to be on forums everyday with work, school, life happening. So, If you are a daily user of this forum, why do you have the spare time? I personally don't work outside the home. I make jewelry and charms for extra income, and do freelance writing. It doesn't pay much. My husband works so he is our income. I have had anxiety and panic issues since I was 18. They both took a turn for the worse when I was 21 and I had to quit working at a job I loved (I was a Veterinarian Assistant). Since then I get in these traps of feeling bad, you know shortness of breath, horrible neck and head pain, feeling like I am in a dream like state. I know its from the anxiety. I spent over a year thinking I was dying from something. Like a disease of some sort. I was in and out of hospitals every other month. It was bad. People wonder why I am so spiritual, well, my faith has kept me going. I am paranoid about drugs so I refuse to take them. I am actually scared to drink alcohol anymore. Its honestly hard at times because the fear keeps me from leaving the house for weeks, even months at a time. I've only seen my mother maybe 10 times this whole past year and she lives 15 minutes away. I have probably only left the house maybe 30 times, like actually getting in a car. I don't drive as some of you may know and its because I am scared of it. I am scared of cars, I know funny right? So when my anxiety is bad, its 10 x's worse if I am in a car. I am not always kind to my husband, but when I think of what he goes through just to be with me, it makes me realize how much another human can love a person. I guess this is my way of letting you guys get to know me better, and hopefully my way to get to know you guys. I don't have many friends and this forum alone helps me out. Just being able to talk to people. I have trouble with that in real life as well. I never been a good people person which is why I guess animals have always been to the heart with me. And blah blah blah, there you have it. I am not looking for pity or anything like that. I just wanted to share about me and learn about all of you. So why do you regular uses have the free time to be on here many hours a day as I do?
