Dear friends
 
I am from Brasil, 45, psychologist, and had my first panic attack about 12 years ago..those times the idea of going crazy crossed my mind and, since then, I lost much of the confidence I had on myself. Anyway, I had just two panic episodes that time and until about a month ago, nothing else happenned, besides the self confidence still be lesser than before the attacks.
 
But since Xmas the idea crossed my mind again, due a two years of heavy stress with family health matters..since then I have been increasingly feeling bad and, about 3 weeks ago, I had the diagnostic of especific phobic anxiety - right about getting crazy.
 
I am on a lot of treatments, like acupuncture, psychotherapy on trauma, TFT, TAT etc, and now anthroposophic medicines..besides a medicine to anxiety ( chemical) and the possibility of a serotonine recapturer, that I am resisting to have, because I want to try the anthroposophical first.
 
I found this forum, searching on google for: "fear of going crazy" and I was moved with so many people describing exactly what I feel.. I wanted to join you ( to feel safer:) and also to suggest you all to look for anthroposophical medicines. They really stopped the highest anxiety attack I had till now and I am trusting they will recover everything that has to be recovered, to be ok again.
 
I will put a link here, if someone wants to take a look:
 
I want to hug you all and, as I wish to myself, I wish you all complete recover as soon as possible.
Be with God

Ceci, a warm welcome to Healing well. I'm so glad you found us.  I'm not sure what an anthroposophical medicine is, but like Lyn, I am not closed minded about anything that can help me and my friends heal!

It must be hard living with anxiety as a psychologist as you would know so much about it and be in constant reminder of it in your work.  I hope you can find a place here to be yourself, and share your anxieties...again welcome, I look forward to getting to know you xx

 Hello all dear new friends

Thank you all for the welcome messages. I want to share with you all the things I have been knowing to fight and to cure this anxiety matter, because I am sure our natural state is that of peace and balance..so, there must be ways to get there.

I didn't take a look at the archived posts yet ( lack of time) but I want to remind you the great work acupuncture can make on our energies. I have been looking for all levels of therapy, since the most basic ( chemical) till radiestesy, to cover a wide range of possible unbalances..I believe it helps.

So, faith in God, reiki, acupuncture, homeopathy, orthomolecular, trauma psychotherapy,radiestesy and now anthroposophy, the search for information and lots of talks to the ones I trust most ( my husband and mother) have been the ways  I am  trying to get cured. I use to say that I dont want to be like before, but I want to be BETTER than before, since this all came because any kind of displacement in my inner structure, may it be in the body, mind or energy system.

Just my cent of contribution in this wonderful community.

All the best, to all of us.

Cecilia

Good Morning, oops it is afternoon.  Glad to see your meeting so many of our wonderful members and I agree with you it takes more then just a medication to make us better, it takes our mind and body working together.
 
You mentioned several therapies or practices.  Would you in your own words be able to elaborate a bit on reiki ?  I have met several people that practice reiki but I never really understood what they were talking about.
 
I think looking at alternatives is good as long as each person takes the time to really educated themselves on the practice.
 
I remember when the word Pilates scared me  :)
 
Again thank you and we hope you enjoy your place in our family.

Dear Kitt

I am not a reikian but I use to receive ( from reiki or other forms of it) energy transmission. In Brasil it is very common, and we have more than one path to transmit chi, or prana or any name we may call it.
Reiki is ok because it depends on courses, trainning and licence to be given, so it is very trustful that something is really happenning. The person ( the reikian) becomes a channel of the cosmic energy after many steps of trainning and s/he can transmit the energy, directing to some parts of your body. The interesting is that you really can feel it coming thru the hands of the channel, it may be very hot and, at the end, usually the receiver feels very balanced and tranquil. It helped me many times.

Sorry if my poor english makes my communication difficult, if you or anyone can't understand something please let me know:)

I think you may try it at least once and see how it works for you too..
Best regards
Cecilia
