  If you had the chance to do the things that you miss the most since you got hit with anxiety and p/a's what would you do to get that small piece of your life back?
 
  Mine is too ride in the rodeo and to fly again and I'm planing on doing just that this summer even if it's just running the barrows, or poles and flying a plane again with an insreuter(sp) sorry a little bit buzzed right now but I do plan on living again the life I loved and doing so with my little girl that loves horses as do I and I will not let this beat me down again, I maybe only able to do it in short bust, but I will do this for my kid no matter what!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 So what is your plan on getting a part of your life back as spring is coming soon?

I used to ride horses all the time. Loved it..dreamed of owning my own, etc. I havent ridden in 2-3 years and how I miss it! I got too busy then developed anxiety and decided that I was too fearful to get back on. I miss running through the open fields and riding the trails. Nothing like it in the world.
I am getting married in May and I plan on making riding a part of that new chapter:)

My goal involve planes and horses too!! Though not quite as ambitious as yours Dave!

The last year and a half was tough - husband was out of work with bad back, had surgery in January and the long road of recuperation. This year I am determined not to keep putting off the "one day..." things.

I'm getting on a plane to Floriday the end of this month to take my youngest to Disney. I've had a problem with flying going back before the A/P and have not flown since I've gotten it. Was hard enough to cope before and am worried I might really freak now! Havent had xanax in 13 years, but gonna ask for some just in case.

Now that we have a good beginner horse I can trust, I am determined to get my daughter out on the trail. From the time I was 10 I spent all my free time with horses (first our friends and then ours) and they were such good times. With my own kids, the thoughts of what could happen always have me finding excuses... Of course I'll have to deal with the guy who's been pretty much lolling around the pasture the past few years! I've been holding her back and all three of us (her, me and the horses) are only suffering for it!

  Well somehow my kid got me involed in the 4H trail rides this year, as she is the vise pres. of her club she is planning alot of trail rides this summer. Some on the beach and some around here in the woods (over nighters) so she kind of got me on that one lol as they need someone who can deal with a bear or a moose if need be so I'll have to riding point with the rifle as the bears use the same trails going down to the rivers to fish so I'll be riding Boone in as he dosen't get spooked when I do fire off a round when riding and there going to love my what you got stew at the end lol

Mine would be to be able to go back to work. I miss working and interacting with people on a daily bases. Not being able to work is more from other medical problems I have then the anxiety and depression. I really can relate to these people who are forced into retirement it feels like your an old sick horse sent out to pasture to die because we can't use you anymore.
 
I have already been making a lot of changes as for my anxiety and feel I can usually control it but still have to force myself on days but I am in more control of them now.
