Let's Get This Show On The Road
« on: July 07, 2014, 04:36:55 PM »
Well Hello Everyone,

My name is Cory and I'm a full fledged anxious, depressed, stressed, compulsive, you name it I got it or will soon develop it once you mention it ::), 26 year old male from Arizona. I've been dealing with a multitude of physical and mental symptoms since I can remember, which is no more than about two weeks mind you , and I'm looking to finally make the long road to recovery. I've been on meds, I've tried talking it out, I've stood on my head, I've drank this, eaten that, read this, watched that, yada yada for years. But what I haven't done is given anything I've started a fair chance and abandoned it a week or so in. So....I'm going to try really hard to develop some good habits and joining this site is a start.

The other night, I began to write letters to all of those who have done me wrong..I'm 4 in...Seven to go...Had a complete break-down during that...It was great??...I have some workbooks, some healthy food in the fridge, meditation tapes, workout plans.... you get the picture. It's a true honest attempt to be healthy right here...right now..

Anyway,

Who is everyone? What do you suffer from? What have you done to make progress? What's one good thing about yourself? I want to get to know you.

Oh, aside from 26 years old and crazy, I have a beautiful wife Autumn who puts up with all my weird, a gorgeous 8 month old lady-killer son named Maddox, and I'm in Engineering school which might be the real reason I've started losing hair...


OKAY GO!

Welcome Cory, I love that name Maddox. And Cory and Autumnn for that matter!  (I have a thing for names).   This forum has been tremendously helpful to me so far in feeling not so alone with Anxiety.  I've only recently started getting treatment for Anxiety but a therapist did say they felt that I had Panic Disorder and Agoraphobia.  I feel like a lot more than just that could apply to me though.   So my progress has been seeking out a Pyschiatrist, trying new medication and starting Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Thanks for the warm welcome all!

jjZauis,

I have no experience with CBT. Any pointers or books/resources you recommend?

Besides working with my therapist I haven't done too much reading about it but I do know my therapist said he'll be taking a lot of things directly from the book Managing Social Anxiety: A Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Approach by Debra Hope, Richard Heimberg and Cynthia Turk
