Just wanted to thank you for helping me out with support, advice, empathy etc. the last 2 weeks here i have felt more positivity here than when i see my psychiatrist, who charges like a wounded bull, and encourages self pity. this place is genuine, the people are the real deal. my pyschiatrist frustrates me because she understands clinically what a panic attack is, but emotionally she will never know amd be able to empathise/sympathise unless she has an attack herself.
Thankyou for making me feel at home. there are also excellent resources here. its just so nice to find a group of people who can genuinely identify with how i feel, and are not judgemental
This place rocks and im so glad to be a part of it. special thanks to the moderators who wasted no time in welcoming me very warmly.
I hope that my contributions here can help other people who suffer also.
Thankyou again,
Maz XX  :-)

Maz, I've never seen a psychiatrist, but I have yet to meet a medical doctor who understands anxiety/panic attacks. When I was at my worst with panic (while on prednisone for Crohn's), I even had a nurse tell me that my dosage of prednisone wasn't high enough to be causing any side effects... as if a new diagnosis with a chronic illness wasn't enough to cause panic by itself? I think sometimes they just don't get it, and like you I feel more comforted by people who have gone through the same experiences than by anyone else.

You have helped me this week as well and know that you are appreciated.
