Someone recently advised me to read more posts and absorb all the good advice and exchanges that are going on out there. They told me this because I was worried about being too much over the top in my replies sometimes. Yet another person insisted I lighten up and not take everything so seriously. Today I took part in a discussion about phone/text reply anxiety, something, I've never even considered before! This morning, I chatted with a bunch of people about how much we like snow. The point is that I have learned from all of these suggestions. I have cut back my responses to a more mangeable level and tried to inject some humor where applicable. In the last 2 days I have laughed more than in the previous 2 months. I am carefully reading replies to glean every bit of wisdom I can. Old and young, you're all teaching me new stuff. I will continue to help everyone I can within reason. Just with a new, less stressful attitude. Oh, I have written a post about natural alternatives to drugs like Zoloft, Xanax & Ambien. I have yet to post it....Perhaps a little fearful of the naysayers. If there's interest in this, let me know. Look, listen & learn. Three things my dad always told me. ADAA members have a blessed day. Thank you for the opportunity, not only to help, but also to learn more!
