A big warm family welcome to you
I have had the A/P since very young and am 53 and just now learning ( past 6 mths) great coping skills like Breathing techniques,Relaxation Tech's and I am doing CBT and reading a fantastic book called " Brainlock"
You may have to ask your doc for a fast acting short term med til the cymbalta really does kick in fully
Theres all kinds out there I personally take ativan when in a flare from PG ( Disease n Crohns) and I do take valium if needed I am not on any other meds for the a/p now due to all the other illnesses and meds I have to take daily
I am so glad that you found us and I hope you do become a part of this family I am going to bump up a couple of threads so you can join in if you like tell us about yourself and what you do to take up your time or whatever .....
Laughter is a big factor is beating this or at least GIVING IT a big FIGHT and thats what we all have to do is fight the hardest fight in us and keep this A/P from taking us over
WE have A/P
IT doesnt have us
