That's true; I was thinking more about the people who "just don't understand why we can't just get over it/not think about it."  Or "why aren't you better yet??" 

On the other hand, my girlfriend telling me that I was "riding the crazy train" again the other day was totally justified.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

 :laugh3: taking a lengthy vacation in both, most likely.  She puts up with more than most people would; no idea how she puts up with me when I get like I get.

it can definitely be hard.  I am glad she can tease you gently about it.

Her sister is a hypochondriac so this isn't new territory for her.  Sometimes I can be a bit much but usually she'll let me know if I'm getting to be too frustrating.  Truly I am the luckiest girl in the world.

"I think I'm dying of xyz disease because..." This is one I said a lot myself but now on anxiety medication I haven't said that in weeks and sixpack I am heightening my dose of medication (Veneflaxine) for my anxiety it's going to be 75mg and it will also be a 24 hour extended release pill type so when I start it tomorrow night I will have the side effects for awhile but it will be very worth it  :party0006: :party0006: :party0006: :party0051: :party0006: :party0006: :sign0169: :sign0087:

On medication, which is doing fine, it's all trial and error...

I disagree with everything on that list! If it weren't for my SYMPTOMS, I wouldn't have anxiety. It's my SYMPTOMS fault, not mine!

LOL. As usual, very good post.

I can majorly relate to this post. I can't stand not being able to trust my own instincts but I just can't. From experience, I can't. And yet I always think something must have been missed. I think 'I can't help it, I can't move on until I've been reassured over this.' And then, even if I am reassured, there'll be something new. I frustrate myself!

Yep reassurance for a hypo is like crack to an addict.  it works for a little while.  it feels very good  BUT the "high" soon wears off and a HA peep is soon looking for another round.   Reactive behaviors keep a person in the vicious cycle----a whirlpool. 

As I say:  if you keep shooting yourself in the foot, the foot can't heal.   Same goes for getting mentally healthy.  If you continue googling, seeking endless reassurance, monitoring, self testing, you cannot heal.  There is no way around it:  Getting better requires doing positive/proactive things LONG term even though it is hard.  Of course who ever said it was easy?
