i've had my experience of anxiety last feb 2008, it started when my boyfriend and i had a huge fight, depression sinks in and after a while i didn't know what is happening to me.. i felt like i dont want to move on... hopeless and so down.. but i'm struggling to move on... then the anxiety of going crazy kept me really down.. struggling to be normal.. but finding it hard to do... then i've found this site and was amaze.. that i'm not alone.. that other people do experience this kind of burden... i didn't go to therapist nor take any medication... i just relied on my little beliefts and my so called left self trust... but i'm considering taking the advice of a prefessional and some kind of vitamins for this mental illness....
I do believe that if we have trust in our self.. we can bring back the old we or much better us... life is a gift.. do it's hard..

Therapy is always a good idea. Even for those who are "mentally stable". Its an out for us no matter how good our lives may seem.

Meds do help. They do not how ever fix, solve or make the problem go away. They lesson the symptoms and help us ease through the day.
A healthy life style including exercise, healthy foods and good people in our lives help. But for some its not always possible to have a perfect world.. myself included. =)

Anxiety is not fun. But it can be dealt with. Therapy and positive thinking along with the right med combo can bring most of us back into a more "normal" state. ( I dislike using the word normal)

Take a deep breath. Remember you are not alone! There are many like us out there in this huge place we call the world. Grab some coffee, have a seat and welcome!

Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum. I am Kitt.

Support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. People with health conditions, as well as their friends and families find support groups to be a valuable resource and get confirmation that their feelings are "normal", educate others, or just let off steam. IMHO joining a support group is joining a family

I have found the support, validation and encouragement that I receive here, to be so helpful and healing. I hope and trust that will be your experience as a member of the HW family.

Talking about your issues and sharing them with others is a wonderful form of therpy as a problems shared is a problem halved.

I also believe in therapy if you feel you would like to try it I certainly support that decision.

Take care and again a warm welcome.

Welcome, Love! First of all, anxiety disorder is not considered a mental illness. So, don't feel badly thinking you're losing your mind or there's no way out of this.

I'm glad you recognized the trigger, which was the fight with the boyfriend. Going to therapy would be an excellent idea. They're so helpful and great at listening.

There are many things you can do to help yourself. Read the other threads and jot down suggestions. You'll feel better in no time!
