Lotsa new people around here, and some familiar faces, too. Hope you're all doing well.

I just had some time and thought I'd say to some of you who are discouraged that it IS possible to make progress with this crap. I have setbacks, of course, but I'm living proof that you can rise from the depths and rebuild your life. Everyone's "answer" is different. I found that medication helps, and that after that I had to go through several stages which I now recognize as "coming to terms" with how I am. These days I no longer write about it, don't usually talk in forums, or anything like that. Occasionally when I'm having a rough time I feel the desire to come here and spill my guts, but I almost always refrain.

I've found a great person I can talk to on a daily basis about it. I'd recommend that you find a confidant. Don't just talk about anxiety with them, either. open up your life and let them in. I'm not saying that forums or blogging is bad, don't get me wrong. It's just not for me anymore. There was a time when it was very necessary, however, and I'm truly grateful for the support of all the fine people of HW back in the day.

Anyway, these days life is great. As I said, I still have setbacks. For example, life recently became SO great that I started flipping out about it and regressed for about a week. To many of you that will sound silly, but once you get to a certain point a regression like that is scary! But it's over. I'll just have to live with it from time to time.

I'm functional professionally and productive creatively. What more can I ask?

Debaser,    I am so glad you are doing so well...  
I totally agree with you that you need a go to person to help you thru these trying times..  I also have found that person..  It is nice because husbands, family, friends really don't understand the whole deal of anxiety/panic..   But when you find that person..  WOW.. It is awesome..   So good for both of us..   Glad you are moving in the right direction..  I feel I am to!!   Take Care....

Hello Debaser,
You were one of the first members I met here and I remember the struggles you went through.  You taught me a lot and I am so glad to hear how well you are doing.

I understand every word you said and I think your choice to not dwell on the anxiety daily was the right decision.  Life is short so just live it to the fullest.

I wish you peace and happiness as always.
Kitt
