HI there....I moved the post here where you will get more answers my friend okay .......LYN
Email me anytime you need to ...email is under my name at side in envelope ......
Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P forum. I have anxiety and depresssion too. I also take Valium and have just added low dose buspar. I am on cymbalta but want to come off that so we are adding the buspar to cover the anxiety better.
I am like you, I anticipate the outings but I have practiced staying in the moment. Don't worry about yesterday it is over. Tommorow will take care of itself so stay in the moment.
I like to believe that the biggest fear is fear itself as after the event I realize I was just fine and nothing bad happened to me.
Please stick with us as we love new members and having you with us it really nice.

Welcome to Healing Well!! I hope you like it here, we are a supportive group of people and we have a few laughs as well! I have anxiety/panic disorder and OCD. I too, like things to be "just so". Woe unto anyone who leaves dirty dishes in my sink! I was on high doses of xanax a few years ago (6mg) but I rarely take it now beacuse it causes (in me) rebound anxiety. It is great though for getting through tough situations (like going on trips to see difficult family members!) Please let us know how that goes. My mother is coming to stay for seven days and altho we get along great I'm sure we will want to throttle each other at some stage.
Again, welcome, it's lovely to have a new member to share their experiences and wisdom.
