I'm not alone!
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:03:49 PM »
New here :action-smiley-065:

I just found this site late last night while staying up at panicking for no good reason. I was diagnosed with GAD about 6 months ago when I turned 30 after a series of heart palpitations, trouble breathing, etc. - mostly caused by work stress, home stress and skeletons in the closet that have come out in therapy. I've been going to therapy for a year now for depression-like symptoms (which turned out to be a serious of major anxiety attacks about to happen), working on it with CBT (trying anyhow), taking Prozac for about 6 months now and take Xanax whenever I feel an attack coming on. I can't say I'm making fantastic progress but I'm assuming it takes time.

My wife is pretty supportive but I've been pretty private about it with friends worrying of their reactions so I'm hoping this forum might help me realize I'm not alone! I think I'm really hoping to come to terms with myself more than have other people come to terms with me  :-*

Welcome to the forum. Good to have you as a member. Here you are with like minded people. People who understand. As we all suffer from something or other. So feel free to ask any questions. Our members are always willing to help others out. Good chatroom too. 3 posts to enter the room.

Find the correct section of the forum that suits your condition and create a new topic on it. This is just a welcome section. Never really get the same amount of help in this section as you would on the other sections of the forums. So whatever one suits the questions you are asking. Get much better answers.
