I just thought I would share a wonderful story with you all :) I am so darned happy right now and proud of myself. . . Now let me tell you a story. . .
Once upon a time I was a very active person that used to go clubbing, run around taking cross country road trips with my friends, night walks for miles, skating in the dark with a gang of people, and late night shopping at Wal-Mart in some of the bigger towns around us. I just got back from my first midnight run in several years to the Supercenter nearby. . . A good fifty mile trip and back home again just to buy some games to help me stay in the moment when I need the extra help. I was feeling a bit of anticipatory anxiety about going after hitting the road with my best friend, the lines were whooshing buy, lights blinding me in the mirrors, and all the stuff that can cause a panic attack. I kept making myself untense my muscles, kept my breathing normal, and thought about all of you my dear family. We sang the whole road trip and I went into the store smiling and being very friendly to everyone, bought my games, and we headed back to the farm :) I can't say I didn't have my moments, but I used my techniques and survived with flying colors, lol :) I am so happy to feel a great part of me coming back again :)
Just wanted to say thanks for all the support and give a shout out to the CBT!!!

I would do a handstand, but I might bump my head, lol :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)
