Hi everyone.  I went away this weekend with my Husband without having a panic attack or anxiety!  I remember 3 months ago not wanting to get out of bed because I was too scared.  Just the thought of going out of the house would bring on major anxiety.  I certainly did not think going away would be possible.  It felt SO GOOD!  I had a lot time to reflect.  I will never take anything this simple for granted ever again!
I want to thank you all for your words of encouragement.  Even though I do not know you personally, I can feel how strong you all are by reading your post, and that makes me strong.  It is comforting to know that people in this family are supportive and that we can inspire each other!   God Bless You All!
Take care,

Congratulations!  Hope you guys had a nice time.  I suffer the opposite of agrophobia.  I get depressed and anxious when I stay home for too long!  Hope you continue to do well and enjoy life.   You deserve it like everyone here. scool

Congratulations, that is awesome news. You are doing excellent.

You have been supportive to so many that I am so happy for you.

You are a warm, wonderful caring person and you give so much to the group in a loving, gentle manner.  After reading a response from you I always feel like I have just been hugged.  I sense that you really care.

Keep it up as "We are Family"

Hello everyone.  Thanks for your responses.  They mean so much to me!
We had a great time!   Wanted to stay longer, but my Hubby had to get back to work the day after we came home.  Thanks for your kind words.  I wish you nothing but the best dear.  You deserve it as well!
There is hope for all of us.  I really believe we inspire each other.  We went to Cape May and Wildwood, New Jersey.  They're about 1 1/2 hours from us.  Cape May is absolutely beautiful.  Everything is Victorian.  I enjoy walking around and looking at the architectural work on the homes.  It is truly breathtaking!
Wildwood has lots of amusement rides,games,waterparks, and so much more.  Not to mention all the great food.  Yah, I over ate just a little LOL!  Thanks again hun!
Thanks for your kind words, they truly touched my heart!  You are inspiration.  I know you are on jury duty.  The way your handling it is inspiring.  You give us so much hope.  There are wonderful people in this family, and I intend to support everyone the best I know how to.  Thank you love!
I know... YA TOLD ME SO..LOL!
You are always right!
We all know how much you give to us.  We are all greatful to have you.  You are an inspiration to us all.  Your kindness and gentleness always touch me deep inside!  Thanks sweetie!
(((((((HUGS TO ALL)))))))

That really is great. I was watching some preacher on TV last night saying that the bible says to "live in the now" and such, meaning that we should enjoy the present and avoid ruminating on the past or worrying about the future. I kept thinking, "that can be pretty difficult at times", and that's true. But I think the preacher was speaking the truth, as well, and that's what we should be aiming for. Life is what you make of it, essentially. Some of us are challenged, but, with persistence and perhaps a little support, we can get there, too.

Hi Aussieangel,
It was beautiful.  I hope you do get a chance real soon.  It can be very relaxing and peaceful.  There is something therapeutic about getting away, even if for only a couple days!  Thanks again hun.

Hi debaser,
Thanks for the comment.  It is true "live in the now" can be difficult and challenging at times.  I too believe persistence is one way to get there.  Also the support of everyone on the board is so helpful.  I believe we inspire one another! 
Good luck to you with your new job and loft! 
Take care,

The digestive tract is basically a hollow muscular tube, mucosal epithelium lining the inner surface, and circular and longitudinal muscle comprising the walls. The mucosa, forming the inner lining of the tract, is supplied with a rich network of blood vessels, nerve fibres and endocrine cells

Digestive main groups: those forming the alimentary canal, and the accessory digestive organd. The alimentary canal digests food - breaks it down into smaller fragments - and absorbs the digested fragments through its lining into the blood. The accessory organs (teeth, tongue, and several large digestive glands) assist the process of digestive breakdown in various ways, deseasesdigestive system, digestion is the process of breaking down food into molecules small enough for the body to absorb. Proteins, carbohydrates, and fat in our diets must be broken down and later, reassembled in forms useful to our body, deseases

Digestive system Anus, Esophagus, Oral Cavity, Appendix, Gall Bladder, Pancreas, Ascending Colon, Ileum Rectum, Cecum Jejunum, Salivary Glands, Descending Colon, Larynx, Sigmoid Colon, Diaphragm, Liver, Stomach, Duodenum, Nasal Cavity, Transverse Colon

Mary, remember the positive experience you had when you went away. We often only remember the moments of anxiety. This was a big step forward for you. Progress! There are times when I'm sitting and I notice I haven't got any pain, nervousness, fear. I thank God for the moment and remember it. People do take times like that for granted and they shouldn't. I'm really happy for you!
