Just thought I'd drop a line here seeing as I got great support and help when I was feeling a wee bit low. I have not got many serious anxiety attacks since... why? I don't know but its good! I got a promotiopn in my job and I have quite a bit of freelance work going on, plus quite a bit of partying so not much sleep and some stress but I still feel grand (Touch wood!)

Just on another random point which I know very little/none about is medication. I read that a lot of people take some type and there seems to be a lot of negative effects from them. I've never been to a doctor about my 'turns' but I'm kinda glad I don't take any pills. i don't like the thought of it. I guess its necessary in extreme cases though?

Anyway... hello everyone!

I'm glad to hear that things are going so well for you now. Let's pray that they continue.

Regarding the medication, it does seem to be a mystery how some people can manage to overcome their anxiety without it, some don't get relief unless they do use it, and some are somewhere in between. I guess it's just diversity in action!

Hi Dave,

Thanks for checking in, and congrats on the promotion turn !! What great news.

I hope you continue to be mostly anxiety free.

Medication is neccessary for some of us who suffer severe anxiety/panic/depression. It can have some side effects to begin with, but once the right med is found it can make the world of difference! I am not unhappy or ashamed to be on my meds..If it works, do it!

Hello Dave,

Glad to hear back from you that all is going well.  Take care of you and if you ever need medication then it will be best to discuss the pros and cons with you physician.  wink
