ROUGH

Man, so a lot has happened recently.

I was good for almost a year and every time Anxiety rears its ugly head it's something totally different. I'm doing anything I can to kick this thing!

I hate the feeling of passing out and I just started to see a psychologist in my area that specializes in EMDR therapy - read up on it.

I know this will help as I need to digest these feelings and as one of my psychologists' patients said, "For something I try my best to avoid, I sure seem to look for it around every corner!"

That's so true.. Well I know what it's like and I hope whoever reads this finds some sort of relief through assimilation.

Sorry rockster321 that your anxiety is back again. Good Luck with the EMDR therapy. I've heard of it before but never looked into it. It's probably the only thing I haven't tried over the years. Well remember we're here if you need some support. Take care.

You know whatever you did to manage anxiety for a year definitely sounds encouraging. Ive been taking it day by day, so far two weeks without going into a panic. I hope I can be as strong as you and last a year too. I know you said it returned but, you still managed to keep it away and I think that victory however small is still something worth celebrating. Best of luck with the new therapy, you sound like you are close to breaking these chains of anxiety.

Thank you Blu7. I pray you find the peace you're searching for. You will find it and this will pass. It's been 3 years for me, but I seem to go a year or a little more between having an issue. Then I'll have terrible generalized anxiety disorder for a few months until I teach myself to "walk" again.

My biggest stress is losing my job from all of this.

Im also in therapy and doing EMDR. My insurance only covers once a week so it's not as effective as I need it to be. Anxiety is one evil mothereffer!
