I try not to be a selfish person...I think mom was a bit too harsh to say I am self-absorbed. Part of my problem is likely worrying about what SHE and OTHERS think, so does that sound SELF-absorbed??? All I know is that if other people had to feel the way WE do , perhaps they'd think before speaking and making quick judgments. Anyhow, thanks for your kind words!
accepting and floating thru it is better than tensing up, fighting back and worrytng about it
also dont monitor your body, and remember you dont have tio be a full time anxiety sufferer, forget about it for a while and do much positive thinking
imagine how you will be when better, when and if working, the paxil will help a lot
Just wanted you to know I am thinking of you-
I think it's hard for your mom to fully understand, as she has not walked in your shoes. My mom's answer was for me to pick 3 things a day that I want to accomplish- and she felt that once I'd accomplish them, I'd feel better. Geez!! I work almost full time, have a husband and two kids. How much more can I do in one day!!?? But I realized that my mom could not comprehend the full scope of having A/P. Sometimes when people try to help, they say the wrong things...
But it sounds like you are taking the right attitude, and hopefully the full effect of the paxil will kick in soon and you will feel much better!! You have always been there for everyone on this board, and now it is our turn to be there for you!!
