Thank you guys for writing me back and giving me words of encouragement. My anxiety is pretty high today I had a panic attack right after I first woke up but I talked myself through it. Sometimes I just want to give up and I think maybe it's meant for me to live in a psych hospital maybe I can't deal with being out of one. Everyone tells me things will get better but it's so hard to hold onto hope sometimes. I get so disapointed when it seems for a little while during the day that i'm doing better then boom it hits again. I want to call the hospital back so bad and ask them if they have a bed available. But I know I just want to go in there to hide so that I don't have to deal with all these emotions and the attacks and the depression. A counselor at the hospital told me that depression and anxiety interlink together but it's bad enough to have one than to have both. I just can seem to get my mind occupied enough I try to distract myself like they said but I have a hard time doing it. It's so lonely here at home in the hospital there were people around always. But everyone says that it will get better I just gotta give it some time. It's driving me crazy.

April,
I'm sorry you are having such a hard time. I too had a panic attack this morning while walking into work. And it really sucks becuase it just ruins your day. I've never been in a psych hosptial so I can't really advise you on that but I do know when I go to the hosp w/ my symtoms, I feel safe and secure there and my anxiety seems to calm down alot more....so I think I know where you are coming from. Do you have friends or family that you can surround yourself with during these hard times in trying to get back to living a normal lifestyle outside the hosp? I hope that all goes well for you. Much love and support, always!

April,

Good Morning.  I have both, Depression and Anxiety and yes it is hell to live with many times but there is no where to hide and so I keep on dealing with whatever comes up.

I too have days where I feel good and then boom things go south in a New York minute but that is when we have to practice the skills we learn in therapy and through talking with others who understand our disorders.

I know it sounds trite but truly you will make it through, you must fight for yourself and learn those coping techniques.

Have you done the CBT program?  It truly has helped many. 

Gentle Hugs to you,

Kitt
