I am 22 yr old girl, I have had SA symptoms my whole life....getting worse the older I get. I live in a small town in the Shuswap (in bc) There arent any groups that I am aware of in my area and Id love to know of someone somewhere near where I am who may want to chat??? I feel very alone here but glad to have found this site. Hope to meet some one..... :D

I'm in Kelowna and there are no groups here either besides LEAF (Living Effectively with Anxiety and Fear, a mash-up of all the anxiety disorders, and therefore one I'm not really interested in). It's odd to see someone else from the same area post on one of these sites.

Apparently I was mistaken about LEAF operating a group in Kelowna as I contacted them again a day or two ago and they said they had a waiting list for the area (it must have been shut down as there are documents on their site specifically mentioning a Kelowna group in 2002).
I actually wouldn't mind attending a group session at least once as it is the last thing I have not tried (I've been through the CBT and meds with little to show for it). I would probably quit after the first time, to be honest, having little tolerance for anything that deviates from what I guess you could call my impossible standards.
