When my husband had an emergency health problem, I overcame
my Agoraphobia and went to the hospital with him. I rode home in
a taxi. I slept in our place for two-three nights. I'd never spent a night
alone in my life.

When we house moved. I took a very active part despite a whole lot of pain
that I have on a regular basis. I did not want to see him work too hard.

I kind of used the bank machine in the store. (kinda)

Hows that, Lyn? rolleyes

I thinkj we have another post on this exact same subject. But I could be wrong. It is a new post.

**IT is not exactly the same but it is more of a post on HOW to fight this DD and post how you have done it ...........THanks.......LYN

My success story...Well I have come from the darkest, loneliness place in the world, one I never wish to revist again and one I wont go into detail with. Maybe some of you can relate to that place where nothing makes sence and nothing seems real. I made it back to the real world and I am going to fight to stay here. I know I am going to have battles and have to face tough issues life brings me, but if I can go through and come back from where I have been mantally than I can concour anything the world has to throw at me...Bring it on because I am a stronger person because of my ordeal!!!  That is my sucess story!!  

 P.s Pretty deep, I know and sorry if it makes no sense!   Gillxx

Gilly agree.. im a stronger person because of my ordeal too.

I ve been really lucky recently i am slowly weening off the meds down to 1 pill every 3days soon it will be none. No anxiety attacks despite alot of problems rite now. I touch wood and i hope this is the start of me getting control of my life again. I would i could never have done this with out the help and support i received here.

p.s back in the old day i couldn't make a cup of coffee without an anxiety attack ive come along way only a sprint to go now :P

I ran into some road bumps over the weekend and was very down, Sunday was the toughest day I have had in a long time but I refuse to turn over and play dead.............I will continue  my journey and be happy with who I am and I invite each of you to fight your demons.  rolleyes

I am a work in progress...................................

Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.  When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid... and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.

I am working harder on taking things a moment at a time, a day at a time. What I'm finding out is that for the past few years in particular, I've really isolated myself a lot... I've gotten away from "friends" who were really bringing me down but haven't taken active steps to invite my new friends to be a significant part of my life. I've spent more time by myself and haven't really reached out. I don't know what accounts for this. However, some new people have come into my life recently who have reached out to me and I am finding that they offer positive energy and a caring touch. I hope to spend more time with them so I can start to come out of my shell. I am usually a very outgoing person but I am learning that sometimes I rely too much on myself. Many of you are among those who have brought positive energy my way and I am thankful for you.

Take care,

Lyn,
What a wonderful thread you started here, and as many agree, you are an inspiration, even to those who have healed,

I reluctantly watched the Secret Video for the second time over the weekend, partly because i was bored, partly because i felt a bit grumpy, well quite grumpy really, well i don't know if you have seen it, the Elaphant scene had me on the floor, but i realized something i had known but always forgot, the fight is most important when things are the darkest, because thats when you are changing, when you are starting to heal, write the bad stuff down, then throw it on the floor and jump on it, do to it what you'd like to do to someone that has hurt you, get angry with it, then try to find something good to laugh about, find someone to hug, eat an ice cream, dance around a tree "if you can cope with the neighbors staring "it's not that crazy" if it was made to look good in the movies everyone would be doing it, so invite the neighbors out to dance with you, they probably need the relief more than you know,

Thanks again Lyn

Hi All

I have had a tough few months I have been away from home so not had my usual contact with my local mental health team so not had that support but have had great support here so thank you all for that. My trip has been good and bad I really enjoy skiing as it takes my mind of things and keeps me focused but when I stop my anxiety seems to come back and I find it hard to get it under control which then makes me depressed and its a bit of a vicious cycle which im sure you guys can relate to. I am also struggling with alcohol at the moment so have let myself down on this as I had stopped drinking before I came away but I know I can beat it as I have done before but I may need a little help when I get back from a professional (this is the first time I have said to myself that I need help to quit so positive?). I really do want to beat my GAD/Depression and will fight it all the way as I no longer want to feel this way anymore as it stops me from leading the life I want to lead, when I get back I will be setting some new goals and we tackle them one by one small step by small step and take each day as it comes and stay in the moment and try not to worry about the past. I also think I need to accept that I have GAD/Depression and then maybe I will be able to beat it rather than fight it all the time.

When I get back I am due to start CBT which I think will be a great help to me as I had CAT and found that really helped me piece things together and hoping CBT will give me the skills I need to get my GAD under control and get it to a level were its not controlling me. I found that therapy really helps me and would recommend it to every one, I have not had much joy with medications and think that therapy will play a big part in my recovery so fingers crossed. I also find coming on here is a huge help to me and reading other peoples post helps me as its good to read other peoples experiences and now you are not the only one who is fighting anxiety/depression, and I also find that replying to members posts also helps me as I think it is good to share with others my own personal experiences and help support others.

As I said earlier I am going through a hard time at the moment and had some tough things to deal with in the last few weeks but I have been using moodgym so that I can get a head start on my CBT and I will fight this and come out the other side its going to be a tough few months and I will be making a lot of changes in my life re job etc etc but these life changes will be for the better and hopefully help me beat my GAD and the CBT will give me the skills and techniques to use to keep my anxiety level low so the future although a little scary is looking positive.

Thanks to all members who have supported me over the last months you know who you are and I dont know what I would of done with out your support so thank you.

Hey everybody!

I just wanted to say that the simple act of being involved in this group has helped me considerably. Why? Because it reminds me of where I've been, how much alike we are, and where I am now. I could run down the litany of "bad things" that I've had in my life, but I guess I just feel that complaining about it doesn't really help me. What does is people sharing their successes, set-backs, and encouragements to others.

We are some of the most creative people in the world. We are stronger than we give ourselves credit for, because we have endured hardships and difficulties that would put a lot of "non-panickers" problems to shame. We are also some of the bravest people in the world, because we live in a daily warzone and rise up each day to face it, and to find beauty and understanding in the middle of it. When it comes to crisis, we are often better equipped to handle it, and do handle it better than most people, we just fail to see that in ourselves because we don't feel like "rocks". Well, let me tell you, rocks get worn down over time because of their inability to yield, while trees weather the storms, bend with the winds, and recover time and again from broken branches. Even if you cut a tree down to nothing but a trunk, new branches burst through from the roots below. It takes a LOT of effort to get rid of a tree. We may get moved about by life's winds, maybe even chopped down from time to time, but we survive and continue on.

I'm proud to be a tree, and I'm proud to be a part of this particular "forest". We make for beautiful scenery, don't we? smilewinkgrin
