Anxious but here

Hi, I'm Kate. To be honest I was undecided on whether to join this community or not due to my social anxiety, which is just one of the difficulties I have to contend with. Ultimately I've managed to push past that feeling, join, and am looking forward to hopefully becoming a part of this community.

    Hi @Adrian_Scope. I'm still going, which is always a good thing. I've been dealing with pain both joint related and migraine/headache related. I'm waiting on a call from my neurologist with a date for yet another lumbar puncture, so far I've had 6 in 10 months  :|

    Hello and welcome @katicorn lovely to see you here. I hope you get an appointment soon, dealing with pain on a daily basis is enough to make any one feel anxious.
