I missed you guys. I havent logged on in a while and I see some new names I cant really say thats a good thing because I always say I wouldnt wish this anxiety thing on my worse enemy and I hate to see another person become a sufferer but welcome to our new friends anyway. I hope everyone has been well. I have been having some success with my CBT sessions. I was able to go to the mall with the kids by myself and I even got on the subway train. That was a big step for me. I can honestly say that this CBT is not going to be easy but its worth it. I really thought that I wouldnt even be able to make it this far. I thought the only way to escape this h**l called anxiety was to take medication. I am in no way saying meds are bad because I keep my Xanax with me, I just wanted to overcome this without meds. So for anyone who is thinking that they cant get through this trust me, if I can so can you. I know it may take some time and I know that I will not be totally free from panic and anxiety but at least I will be able to manage it.

This too shall pass...

Hello and it is so good to hear from you.  You are making some huge strides forward. I am very proud of you.  CBT does take work but you are up to it and I can see from your post you are learning new tools to help you deal with your anxiety.
