Hi everyone, I'm so happy to be part of this wonderful group and hope to gain some new ways of dealing with my anxiety. I've suffered for many years... off and on... and currently started a new job after working from home for over two years. I have been keeping my anxiety at bay, but ignoring it does not make it go away. Fear of failure and feelings of not being deserving of something good plague me, and I often need to sit with my feelings and try to determine if they are real or just my anxiety/lack of confidence creeping in to trick me. Alistair, my husband and I have watched you on Escape to the Country for many years and your wonderful energy reaches me through the airwaves. I even named my cat after you!
