I was just wondering if any of you turned your back on your dreams or hopes because of this disorder?
 
I used to want to sing sooo much.. I sang for 8 years and still do in my house by myself, but I truly wanted to be a famous singer.
 
Fear of having to travel and being on stage and being in crowded areas turned me away from my dreams.
 
 
 
I now decided that I shouldn't give up on my dreams just because of a disorder, and that the disorder can't stop my voice.... so I'm going to start recording again.  I love singing, and I want to record something showing my range.
 
I have read about some singers that had panic attacks on stage and their fans just accepted it and understood... I was happy when I read that... it was comforting...
 
 
With this disorder ... many times I have lost sight of my dreams and hopes... but do not lose those... as they will always remain within you....try to lavish those hopes and dreams my friends.
 
*HUGS TO EVERYONE*

Great for you twiggy. I have second thoughts about my current path (psychology) for fear of not holding up infront of a patient. I have not given up yet but I do get thoughts. I have been putting off an internship for this reason too. Gonna be a big hurdle to leap.

Don't give up, I'd still like to finish my enrolled nurses certificate. It just may take me longer then I first thought.

I ran into a guy at the unit I stayed at and he was only 20 and already had given up on life because of his illness sad. That's really sad.

It may take us longer and our journey may be harder but in the end it will mean a lot more because of all our hardships.

Kudos to you Twiggygal and great thread
No do not give up on your dreams

I always wanted to be a nurse and became one worked for many many yrs first home care and then in NH
I then had own retirement home with family all working in it ** most were in HC field **
Anyways I did have to finally stop and that was due to illness like the crohns and Pyoderma BUT I still do go to many of the seniors around town and volunteer my time doing shopping or errands
As well I looked after mom til she passed and now am looking after my dad ........
I would never have given up on my dreams
I love to help ppl and so I have the "Teens Night" and also did the 'Santa " thing for last 3 days so kids would have food and toys under the tree for Christmas
It felt so great doing this although emotionally draining as many a parent(s) cried and hugged me and other volunteers with such gratitude and of course I got crying too.......
BUT it was worth every minute of it
Great thread hun
Thanks
Happy holidays to all and all the best for everyone in 2007

hi twiggy, it is a great thread, and yeah, i do believe that this disorder has kept me from my full potential, but i figure thats my bad, and i should fix it, before im to old ;) i hope i can change things, and i love to sing, i wish the hurdles werent so tall, but i bet you ahve a beautiful voice and will do so well, kudos to you!!!!! i pray you will beat this panic, and look forward to hearing something from you! I can always do back up singing for ya, then youd have reassurance and back up :)
lil one, you are awesome and will be able to conquer most things with great results, we know you have it in you, you are so understanding and caring. Kudos to you too baby girl!

I pray that we all beat this panic disorder together!!!

 
 
yeah  
 
All in due time but we are all healing well!!! I think anyway.
 
Aussie- keep at it!!! You'll get your nurses certificate before you even know!! :) 
 
 
Lyn- I'm proud of you!!! That's amazing that you had your own retirement home!! wow... I want to start helping people too.. I just don't know how... I wonder if it's costly to set up an anxiety/panic meet in my area ? 
 
shell- if I ever get any kind of gig... I will DEFINATELY have you as my back up singer!!! yeah   And try to reach your full potential... and you're never too old to do so... I've heard of people in their eighties attending college and earning a degree... so you're never too old!! nono
 
hehe
 
Happy Holidays

Twiggy,
Just found this site from Cronic pain site. Don't give up on anything for any reason. When you find yourself tired and worn out, simply sleep. When your eyes open the next morning come up swinging. In the end you will have fought the best you could have and thats everything. You are an inspiration, now live it.

Twiggy actually it would not be expensive at all time consuming but thats the good pary keeps self busy
You would have to find a Church or hall that would let you have the space fee for mthly meetings .........(non profit organization)
Then do up fliers to put up in post office variety stores Libraries ect ..........
Have date time and what it is for on flier
If you want or need anymore info PLEASE get in touch I would love to see you get this off grond hun you would do well
luvs ya
