i read a book that really helped me a lot. it's by a guy named Richard Kale who beat an anxiety disorder without doctors or medication. the guy was so low at points that he ended up having to leave college and was suicidal at points. in the book he talks about what it took for him to get better. it's good to know that there is someone out there that has overcome the same problems that you have. i feel a lot more confident that i can get better. he's a really intelligent guy. he . he has a day job, but spends a lot of time trying to help people with anxiety disorders. i suggest the book to anyone .he recieves hundreds of emails a day and returns them all.

  Hi zamfishcher and wecome to HW

  It sound like something I would like to look into as well dealing with life as the only way that I have found is by living my life in the woods without my wife and kids, I know that may sound bad but I find myself more at ease there then living a normal life with a lot of ppl around me.

Hi there and Welcome
I dont want to scare you off but I explained the reason for the edit hope you do understand .......
I am really glad you have found a way to combat this disorder w/o meds but there are many ppl that cannot do that for so many reasons
They are trying to combine meds with self help and to me that is a great step for them
I have seen many ppl that first come here hopeless scared and alone or feel they are alone and now they are getting better everyday I see and the others see a difference ( positive) in so many ways

I have nothing against the natural route at all but I want to just ask you to understand that you may be able to do it this way and the fellow you speak of where the others cannot ......they have tried and given it there best shot me included I have been with A/P for more than 30 yrs plus and I am now doing CBT and other techniques that have greatly helped
The other reason for my successes is this forum and the fantastic support and ppl here ....
I am not knocking you nor trying to be rude and I sure hope you dont get that feeling at all from my post
I am gald you found us and I hope that you will stay with us
You have come to a great place and I hope to see you again

Yes it's possible to wash off anxiety without meds. But I think you need a favorable environment (is favorable a word in english?). Anyway I've been on ativan for a week now. The first couple of days I took em. Now I'm trying to skip days, even when I get high panic attacks. Instead of trying to turn away from the scary thoughts I confront them. But If I didn't have all the support I have right now I would've cracked severely. I've talked about my anxiety and it's source to pretty much everyone around me and it helps turn my worst fears into simple conversations. I think meds are essential if you can't yet see the things around you you can hold on to.

I hope tomorrow I'll still be able to say the same thing.

You are right in your approach IMO to the panic and anxiety ...confronting your fears is best ....I have found that out personally and am better for it
I too do not take my ativan everyday only when absoulutely needed
I have come along way with self help books ,techniques and of course ths fantastic support here on HW

Keep the Faith and glad you are posting more
You are becoming an asset to the forum
God Bless
