I just wanted to again thank everyone who helped me in the chat room in the middle of the night last night. It helped being among others who truly understand what this illness is like. Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to further calm down after leaving the chat room, the anxiety became much worse! I will use my coping skills to get me thru the day. But, again, thanks to all who chatted with me. Before I entered the chat room, I was feeling very much alone. As I said last night, I am thankful for having a place to go when I'm feeling that way.
