anxiety

Avatar f tn This Depression forum 2. Your Psychiatrist 3. Go online and find a good local Depression and anxiety support group. They are free and they usually meet once a week. It's a good place for you to go where you can be around others with your condition that understand. These people can often become a great scorce of help and guidance to you as most have much experience dealing with the dynamics of this dissorder.
Avatar n tn anyone know of any anxiety support groups in the area or anyone interested in participating in one? I would love to get together once in awhile with people who understand these things. If I get some responses than I would be more than happy to organize something. Let me know if you're interested.
Avatar m tn He has dx of ADHD combined type (mild), and generalized anxiety disorder which seems pretty bad. He has been refusing to go to soccer (states too many people), shopping and trying to refuse to go to school. He currently see's a psychiatrist. His treatment plan was to have us get our son to school everyday, where he sat in the office and did his work. The school seemed at a total loss of what to do with him.
672839 tn?1305796547 I go to a support group that is at my mental health center.
431685 tn?1324341198 I feel like there's no reason for me to live anymore if I keep suffering from GAD and panic disorder. I feel terrible I tell you, terrible.. I had this last month and it lasted for 4 days.. now 3 days ago I had it again until now as I'm typing and I feel TERRIBLE I get very light headed.. I'm dizzy.. Can't eat.. Loss interest of so many things.. Emotional ( I cried without any reason..) Dying.. Etc.. Is GAD or panic disorder curable? Can it be treated?
Avatar f tn A new hobby, exercise, your support group, attending church more. What are you going to school for? Have you met anyone in church who you can talk to and be honest with? Have you counseled with your pastor? The old things are passed away, all things are becing new. Cling to the LORD Hun, let HIM be the joy of your strength. When we are weak HE is strong.
Avatar n tn i may share some of the symptoms, but im not sure if they are all the way severe enough to be the disorder. Maybe i just have really bad anxiety? and another thing im 21, i used to get in a lot of trouble throughout highschool with alcohol and stuff. my father died when i was 12, so maybe im just trying to find myself since i didnt really have a role model? or are these symptoms severe enough to be a disorder? i still feel like im leaving stuff out... anyways.. any advice would be great.
Avatar n tn Sheehan and anything you can find by Claire Weeks. Find a support group of fellow panic disorder people. Start exercising. You are not alone. You are not dying. You are not going crazy. You can get better.
Avatar n tn It seems that your condition is quite similar to mine, namely Social Anxiety Disorder leading to Depression and General Anxiety Disorder. But I have a lot more choice of drugs than you have. I have tried all your drugs (Paxil, Celexa, Zoloft, Effexor.) All of them had no effect on me.
Avatar m tn One thing I have noticed about the thyroid disorder section is we all play cat and mouse with the current q&a system provided. I've also noticed we all tend to be online at about the time responding back a fourth. I would like to know if anybody would like a chat room here?Not only would it bring more people here to discuss thyroid issues, maybe dr.Lupo or another reputible endo could chime in at a planned time every week and answer questions.
Avatar f tn It gradually got better. The same Neurology group now diagnosed me with Conversion Disorder. The difference is I am 54 years old and the neurologist that I saw in my 20's retired. All the same symptoms as MS. But now they this I am mentally ill. I wish I had taped the office visit. The Doctor was so demeaning. I thought it had to be some kind of cruel joke. Did not even look a me the hole time, looked down to the floor up to the ceiling on he computer .
Avatar m tn Shame is not a very productive emotion, although it is real. Seeking an online support group - like the abuse community here, for example, might be a bteer start. And it is not at all unusual for those of us who were molested as children to have confused or incomplete memories. i call mine "Hitting the Wall".
Avatar m tn I would love to discuss managing of my LPR with other LPR sufferers. However, I can't find any active support group, forum etc. Do you know about anything? Could you send me a link? Thank you. G.
Avatar f tn Any one have good advice for forum or group that I can recommend for my husband and loved ones as I have suffered so much from depression and anxiety and PTSD. Though I am getting better, I have begun to realize that their pain is so strong too as they watched me go through this. I want them to continue to understand me and just like I am reaching out to my own groups to understand my pain, I know they are suffering too and I want to help them if I can.
468452 tn?1225968488 Once I was treated for Anxiety Disorder with SSRI medications I felt enormous relief in my anxiety. There are other alternatives to SSRI's (I am currently seeking information on alternatives). The worst part of my experience was feeling so lost in the moment of panic and anxiety - that nothing could slow my mind down, and relax me. I just wanted you to know you are not alone - I also sought treatment for physical illness that were apparently not present.
758077 tn?1282599161 I would highly reccomend seeing/ continuing to see a physician as well as looking into aa or other support group.
Avatar m tn I over-analyze everything such as my pulse, funny feelings in my arms, my eyesight blurring, etc. I went to a few doctors and they told me I have generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. They prescribed me pills to take but I quit them all because they all cause horrible sexual side effects that just create more problems.
955052 tn?1249584552 If you can't face talking to someone face to face, why not try an on-line support group? Everyone there will have been through, or is still going through the same thing. There are plenty you could try, but from experience www.bulimiahelp.org is very good- just sign up and very soon you'll have plenty of people keen to help.
Avatar m tn I too take klonopin for a severe, unrelated anxiety disorder...My Dr., whom I just spoke to...does not want me to stop....I suffer severe depression also. I have legitimate pain and have never gone over my prescribed amount...but I do not like being a slave to them....I eat very cleanly and do not want to put this garbage into my system any longer...My problem is...do I CT or Taper..I hear strong opinions for both. And while I haven't abused them..
Avatar f tn I met a guy who was very open about having this disorder, he is very nice and really kind, and up until recently i have never know anything about this disorder. After reading online about for a couple hours im sort of nervous because all of the symptoms they tell you about seem really severe.
Avatar f tn As that was the main problem I had, I needed clonazapam to function without panic attacks and other anxiety symptoms. Talk to your doctor about the anxiety. It could be an anti anxiety could be prescribed as an adjunct to the antidepressant. At least until you see if Zolfoft is the right drug for you. Good luck. Keep posting if you need more information. We are a good support group.
938792 tn?1245096126 Have her go online even here or other forums to get different viewpoints. Have her find a support group...or maybe you should go to one and then get her to go. Also, there is no magic pill as far as drugs are concerned. I was not with my wife when she went thru it but to say it was no fun for the trial and error it would have been an understatement.
329165 tn?1515475590 I haven't cycled at all, and now I have absolutely no hallucinations, no delusions, no suicide ideations, and I've even gone through a couple of major health and family crises and I'm astounded that I didn't tip into hypomania or depression or that I am manaing pretty well. I got into this website and a bipolar support group to keep myself in perspective and learn from others in effective ways of coping.
Avatar f tn I'm with JS 100%...logic is pointing towards an anxiety disorder. I think you will be surprised that once you start addressing the anxiety...the physical symptoms often start to dissipate. It takes time. It's VERY hard to be patient when it comes to feeling that way day in and day out...with life interrupted. But patience pays off, trust me. Reading about this is a GREAT place to start while you are getting hooked up with your physician.
Avatar n tn Until you resolve the situation, find a support group with some vertigo people, Google it online. Go see an ENT or neurologist. Motion sickness pills on occasion might help for a while. And remember, you are not alone; you are just miserable. Find ways to adapt while you are trying to get help.
Avatar m tn Everyone experiences 'anxiety' and that's what they can relate to. But anxiety disorder is an entirely different thing and comparing the two is like comparing the cold virus to the AIDS viurs. They are both a virus, but hardly similiar. Keep in mind that a doctor does not have to have anxiety disorder to treat it successfully. You mention having tried a number of medications. Were they prescribed by a psychiatrist? What were you diagnosed as having?
Avatar f tn Now there's technically only two classifications for many similarly related conditions (a) Somatic symptom disorder or (b) illness anxiety disorder. There is always a lot of controversy with using umbrella terms instead of what things use to be labelled......
371848 tn?1206211434 The only problem I see is that everytime you take a pill, there is ALWAYS side effects. Maybe you should try to go to a support group or something, or try to calm urself down somehow, someway. I was told I was suffering from Post Traumatic Panic Disorder. My doctor wanted to put me on pills, but I refused. Granted, I deal with this almost everyday. I have gotten, a little, better. I coach myself, talk myself out of it.
1705346 tn?1349995806 Seeing how this is a medical site I think I need to steer my journal more on the focus of my -medical- condition that I live with. I was born with Autism Syndrome Disorder. It is a mental disorder which has no treatments available at this time. So many people wonder why Autism is climbing at record numbers. I see it as the simple fact that they outlawed the word “retarded” and therefore they have clumped “everyone” who is remotely retarded into the class of Autism.
