 I know that many have often got to the point of yelling out loud
WHY ME
Well .
WHY NOT YOU AND ME
 
Someone had to have this DD to show all that we are SURVIVORS no matter what comes our way
WE can beat this thing or give it a darn good run for its money
 
Take baby steps and if indicated take your meds and try some self help techniques
 
Please DO share with us your steps and all that you have acheived
WE all have acheived something I know and it is time to SHOUT out to the world what you have done to fight
 
 
YES I have Anxiety and Panic
 
ANXIETY AND PANIC
DO NOT HAVE ME
 
That is one of my mantras............
 
Post if you care to
We are here to support and caring does come easy.......LYN

One of my biggest successes was crawling back out of the dark hole in 2006 which was the worst episode I have ever gone through with my A & P and Depression.

Now I try to stay in the moment, know my triggers and cry when I need too.

I accept everyday that is a good day and the not so good days I work hard at making them better.

Thanks
Kitt

My success, which is still a work in progress, is getting out of the way of living in my black hole, thinking it was where I belonged and was destined to be...realizing that I had potential to do so much more, that I was destined to do great things and make an impact...I won't lie, I still have days where I just seem to fall back from where I just came from and I'm like, why do I even bother when whenever I take one step forward I fall two back? But those rare glimpses where I feel truly happy...the dreams I have...I know I can make it a reality. I no longer feel like the illness controls me. I am learning to conquer it.
I’m lonely; gotta look for a party
And dance with somebody tonight
Cuz I’m lonely; I feel empty inside
Can’t you make me feel alive?

I am glad there is this thread as I was thinking the other day of starting a thread saying how good I feel instead of only posting when I feel bad.

Six months after release from hospitalization for overwhelming anxiety which basically caused me to become catatonic, I am finally, just last week, feeling completely back to my old self.  My anxiety was finally zapped with Zyprexa about a month after I got out of the hospital.  I took a cocktail of Lexapro, Depakote, and Lamictal with Zyprexa only needed every week to ten days.  I eventually stopped the Depakote on my own as I didn't need the constant hunger and hair loss.  about two weeks ago we added Wellbutrin to the mix and that was the step that finally did it, I am back to "normal", whatever that is for me.  No lingering anxiety, no hopelessness, no body aches and pains.  I have to take alot of meds to be this way but it's all worth it.  So for all of you still looking for the right mix, there is hope!  (I am bipolar).

Every day I can get out of bed is a success to me...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

yeah  FANTASTIC posts all
 
I too have had to climb outta that dang dark hole
 and I will never or actually I
Pray I will never go there again
 
I would just sit for hours in a chair in LR and watch TV but
Not seeing a dang thing and
Not doing anything either'
Talking to Lil sis on the phone made me a bit calmer
and she KNEW when she would hear my voice
SOMETHING was wrong
I will always have her in a special place in
This heart of mine
 
All have a place in my heart
 
THAT is definitely NOT me and I climbed out a bit at a time
I MADE it with the help of
a very great family here and
Lil sis ....Megs and so many other
ppl too many to mention
 
 
Georgia Girl.
YOU are making great steps and
 I am so glad your meds are working for you

out of bed I do understand totally
BUT you are doing it
KUDOS to you
 
Justbreath
I have read all your posts and yes
you have made alot of steps in your
 battle as have so many others......
 
I wake each morning and no matter
how cruddy I feel
I do make sure I am dressed and
put on make up  and do hair
THIS gives me confidence
 
YOU are so right
THIS beast likes to see us down as low as possible and
It will eat your confidence
IF YOU LET IT
 
YOU are doing a great job hun
Keep up the Great work
I too do CBT and for me it helps
As does coming to this board
and My HW family
 
STAY confident or at least try your dangest too
It is working for you and if something
WORKS
Dont mess with it
 
And yes
Anxiety and Panic Do NOT have us
 
Thanks for all your posts
Lil sis .....et all .Love Big sis

Good Afternoon,

I have a ton of success stories as I have overcome so many little issue that seemed like monsters and I have overcome the real monsters in me.

I have mini panic attacks, I beat myself up alot when I feel weak, and I am the first to cut myself down, but then I found HW and my dear Mentor was there to tell me to keep on going, just lose the "stinkin thinkin" and I needed that. I wrote many posts when I was in tears as talking to others and helping  others would help me become grounded and get my mind back into the real world and know I was a good person and not stupid.

I lived through the death of my father when I was 39 and he was 72.  He died of pancreatic cancer.  I was his only child and I lost so much that day but I did proud by him as he would have wanted me too. I kept my promise to him to take care of my stepmother. I honored his wish and then 5 years later went through her heart disease and cancer and eventually she moved from Wisconsin to live with us.  She moved in Saturday and died at my kitchen table on Monday.  I would often think, "Why me" but then realized I did not have time for letting in those kinds of thoughts.  It happened and I would do my best to deal with it.

Then the worst thing in the world happened, our 21 year old son died in a car crash.  I think perhaps I never got through that but I said and did all the right things so now all these many years I am learning to honer his life and not mourn his death.

I have learned to not panic everytime the phone rings as it is usually a wrong number and no this is not the number for the sober cab shocked .

I have learned to accept others as they are and not expect them to be perfect.  I have given my self permission not to be perfect.

I am thankful for every day I can make a difference in the lives of others. I am thiankful for every time I can make someone smile or take some of their pain away.

I am glad to be alive.

Thank you for being here for me. To you Big Sis, I am so grateful for having you in my life as I can celebrate 2 Thanksgivings. devil
Hugs

Kitt

I've been out of the hospital almost three weeks this Sunday, and I've been overwhelmed by blessings. I finally started that Lucinda Bassett program I had tucked away for a few years (had to come out of the closet:) I also read through Panic Away, and between the two I have been feeling wonderful :) It has been a condition I've lived with for over 20 years, and the past three months were h*ll. . . but the past three weeks have been great. I am glad everything happened the way it has, because I would not be learning to reprogram myself after all the years of thinking so negative, and being such a perfectionist :) I'm doing so well I was not able to leave my house just a few weeks ago, and now I'm out exercising every day, working the farm, and I even drove 20 miles away and back to go see my doc :) I'm really proud of myself. . . I'm also happy to see all the good news from the rest of you all too. . . I want to thank everyone also for being there for me :) It has helped a lot :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)

my success is proving my first pyschiatrist wrong. at 14yrs of age, he told me my A/P was too severe to ever lead a normal,productive life, or be a functioning member of society. he painted a very bleak picture, made me out to be an emotional invalid and to ready myself for a life of living at home and never getting out and living my life.

WELL: i left home @ 18. i began my nursing training. as much as i loved nursing, i kept failing chemistry so i hesitantly quit my nursing degree and switched over to teaching. i nursed my way through college, in Oncology.

I didnt just graduate from college- i graduated with TWO degrees and a career that i have enjoyed for the last 3 years. when i struggle with my A/P, i remember that I can do anything through God who strengthens me. i refuse to be a statistic. yes, i have a horrible illness, but i wont let it define me.

There were times at college that were rough, i had to defer twice for emergency surgery- but i believe there is a reason im this way and i choose to live with it, and contol it, not have it control me.

..A bit back I had made a list of things I HAD to get checked out with Health

..Eyesite.......wear galasses but need stronger ones....Have appointment Dec 13th

...Hearing.....Done twice second was today ...Got fitted for Hearing Aid /Disability pays smilewinkgrin

 ...DX my pain Meds with Doc on Board......Have been decreasing by 20 mg daily

....Well today I have found out I have No.. none... nada... nil.. hearing in left ear cry  and only 40% in the right ear........YES I cried.I knew it all along but when you are given a difinitive DX it makes it REAL......I am going to have to wear a hearing aid in my good ear but nothing can help the L one.......I have already mourned today as I love to listen to NATURE and  animals.My hearing will be gone but dont know when due to nerve damge from a mistake made in my TX of PG...I can barely hear my Birds...My babies sad

Reflecting upon this I will listen and listen as best as I can to hear all there is out there an in my home and listen to Cait .........I have the ability to get down and depressed over this OR I have the ABILITY to ACCEPT and take it as it comes.......Many have it worse than I and that makes me know I will not give into depression......I WILL GET THRU THIS with you supporting and caring about me as per the norm in this Family and I will continue to try and help those that want my help and support........It makes all this more worthwhile

     **On the plus side I will have it before Christmas so I get an early present**

......Yes all small steps but still steps IMHO and I have or I am acheiving what I had set out to do

........................What about YOU.................Care To Share...................................

I have been feeling a lot better lately. Actually I have been feeling the best the past two weeks than I have the past two years. Not sure what to contribute to this, except something that KITT told me on a post some time ago, and due to this post of KITT'S I don't worry so much about the "big one".

I am having a slight set back tonight. I am usually pretty good until I have to travel somwhere. I begin thinking negative thoughts about something happening while I am driving (all my panic attacks have happened while driving). Well tomorrow I have to travel for Thanksgiving, my chest starts getting tight and begin having my anxiety feelings. I have this everytime I have to travel and I travel at least once or twice a week for work. I have decided when this anxiety started happening that I would not let it allow me to lose my job, therefore I just grit my teeth and get in the car and drive. I have terrible anxiety when I am driving but when I reach my destination all my anxiety leaves my body. I know tomorrow will be the same thing, but tonight just anxiety.... But no panic attack so all is good....

i get up every day and put one foot infront of the other and i be patient when other people at work or socially have a whine about "their hideous colds or flu, or stress" when i feel like i have the most hardcore flu and have had it for 15yrs, and i am in a constant state of anxiety, but i choose to live life anyway- i understand those people dont GET what it is like to be me. i just get on with life and ignore the pettiness, which is something im only now learning to do.

My sister is back at the U of MN..............so now we continue on in a calm rational way and whatever is decided will be her decision.  I can live with that...........it is her wishes.

Love ya all

Hi

One of my successes was not letting my dyslexia stop me from pursuing my chosen career, my teachers at school told me i was never going to be able to attend further education as i was not academic enough and was told i was aiming to high, this is were most of my anxiety and depression started as my confidence was so low and i was not getting the support i needed. I left school only passing one exam which was sports, i got myself on to an access course and worked really hard and then got a place at college and gained a diploma in Leisure Management this was a two year course but i had to do it over three years as i found it hard to keep up with the work i found it really hard work but stuck with it and it was worth it in the end.

I think if you put your mind to something and you really work hard you can achieve your goals, I know this is something which i need to start doing in relation to dealing with my GAD and Depression and hopefully i will reach my goals and be able to get my life to a level were i feel i can cope better as im finding things really tough at the moment.

I think HW is a success story in that we can all gain so much from other peoples experiences, we all suffer with anxiety/panic but together we can all beat it i hope that we continue to have more successes so that we can think off those when we are not feeling so good.
