I just want to introduce myself to this forum. I'm Thys and have been in treatment for anxiety, panic attacks, and bipolar II for over ten years. I see a psychologist for therapy and a psychiatrist for therapy/meds. Currently starting new relationships with these doctors. I thought joining a forum like this could be helpful and re-inforcing in my journey to get better. My meds by the way include Zyprexa, Topomax and Xanax.

Hi Thys, and welcome to the HW family. Everyone on here is wonderful, I felt very alone til I found this site and through learning about CBT and finding a therapist in the UK, I finally feel that I am on the mend. I haven't had a panic attack for over a week, how wonderful.
