My old thread is buried so deep in history that I can't find it and don't really want to.  I started this new thread because it always made me feel better to read success stories and here is another one.
 
I FEEL GREAT!!  I truly understand that my issue is not depression but rather anxiety.   Depression hits me after months and months of trying to fight anxiety so I have begun to work on the anxiety issue and what might be causing that.  I had a wonderful visit with my therapist yesterday.  She has been gone for 6 weeks and while she was gone I made this realization.  After that I have had break through after break through after break through.  The last 6 weeks have been amazing!  I realized that I unconsciously shut down my emotions during a crisis with my son when he was 7 and I didn't get any support from anyone around me.  I had to deal with it on my own so I just "toughened up".    I didn't realize that is what I had done at the time so I never went back to being an openly feeling person.  All this emotional stuff that has been attacking me is years worth of unrealized emotion.  It is time to soften up a bit and I feel so good.  I will always worry about my daughter but I have let go of the anxiety over her life.  She is an adult and she has to make her own decisions.  I am and have always been a good, loving and available mom to both of my kids.  I know that I still have work to do but I feel so great.  I know that I am okay and will continue to do well.

Truly Inspirational!!! Being in a slump right now myself (havent had one like this for a VERY long time), its hard to remember the feelings of my own breakthrough periods. Thank you so much for reminding me! It makes this easier to get through - I can again see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Oops. sorry for the double I pushed the wrong button!  I had just one more thing to share.
 
When I was in 2nd or 3rd grade I had a scary moment on a ferryboat.  We were crossing a waterway that can be sort of rough.  I was in the ladies' room, in a stall when the boat listed heavily to one side and then the other.  In that small, confined space the motion was magnified and ever since that day I have had a difficult time with boats.  I live in an area where ferryboats are sort of a way of life.  Any vacation or fun thing that I ever wanted to do involved travel on a ferry boat.  I have never, ever let my fear stop me from going on a boat but it has never been stress free.  Recently  my husband and I took up sea kayaking (somehow that small boat seems different than a big ferry boat) and are having a great time with it.  Today was a gorgeous, crisp clear fall day.  We decided to go over to an island nearby and do some exploring.  With all the anxiety work I have been doing lately and with the boating familiarity that I have gained through kayaking I realized that my boat stress was non-existant today.  It was a great feeling and so nice to have a beautiful, calm moment on the water. 
 
Have a great Monday everyone,

Thats great lady. Once you experience peace, you never want to go back to the old way. Sometimes it takes work(to fight thru those old thoughts) sometimes it's instantaneous. None the less it's a sucess!

Hi

My wife is 48 years old going to be 49 years old.
SHe recently has anxiety attacks coupled with fast heart beat. She is taking medicine.
Can you suggest some healing experience for her?

Regards,
Terry

Cadgent, I'm sorry but I really can't suggest anything for someone else. My experience came from within me and from my past. It came from being honest with myself about what I am feeling and taking control of it. We all have a road to walk, we can do it with loved ones walking beside us but it is still up to us to move forward.
