I’m an Obsesser.
When I found out about my Anxiety Disorder, I went in and scoured the internet for resources and information.
I’ve collected all the bits and pieces about Anxiety/Self-Help in my bookmarks folder for years so I wanted to share them with you.
If you’ve found any resources that have helped you and I haven’t listed them below, let me know!
