Hi! Doug Here

I'll keep it brief, I hope.

I've been dealing with stress, anxiety and depression for over 18 years. I've been through a lot and managed to make it this far. No small miracle, believe me. From complete nervous breakdowns to suicide attempts and everything in between. Even a few stays in psych wards.

Anyway... I do pretty good most of the time now. I am a lifer as far as medication goes, without it there would be no Doug.

I have taken it upon myself to help people that suffer from these diseases/disorders and help myself as well, by talking and sharing information.

I look forward to meeting many of you (I hope) and sharing.

Hi 32

 

Funny how things work some times.

I was just reading your thread and thinking to myself how familiar some of it sounds.  I don't suffer from fibro though.

I know the medication roller-coaster can be a long and painfull journey, but stick with it and stay in touch with your Dr.  With your help, they will get the med/s and dosage right for you.  It took a few years for my Dr's to start getting it right and finaly got it right 7 years ago.

I, like you, fought going to see psychiatrists and psychologists for a long time.  Then when I did go, I didn't tell them much.  I didn't want anyone to know what I was thinking.  I did eventualy open up enough for them to get an idea of what was going on inside my head.

Psssst... fill out your forms

You're doing a great thing by being here and talking with people.  We that suffer with these conditions can be of great help to each other.

I'm here to listen any time,

Doug

P.S.  Fill out your forms yet? yeah    I like to try and keep things light.

Quick note to Mods.

I couldn't decide if my links fell into the category of allowable links, so I have removed them from my profile signature.  Could you let me know if they are ok.

Thanks,

Doug

HI Doug and Welcome to HealingWell!

I think its great that you have found us and that you are here to share your experiences and trying to help people. Maybe in time, you would like to become a moderator? Im glad that your meds keep everything under control and that you are living life to the full!

RE: Your Links... I have had a look at them and I am a bit unsure but my gut says that they are fine. I am going to check with someone else first before giving a conctrete answer though because I think they are right on the border.

Warm Wishes

Darren

Thanks djdaz

It's been a long road to reach a managable level.  A lot of reading, searching and learning.  I would have liked to have things like this forum when I was first suffering.

If there is anything I can do to make my sites more accessable for people, do let me know.  Perhaps hosting them myself to get rid of the sponsor ads.  I would rather my articles be available for everyone to read.

Doug

Hi Doug,

I have double checked with another moderator and my gut instinct was right that the links were fine, so please feel free to put them back into your sig line.

All the Best
