Avatar f tn Welcome to the forum.....we'll try to get you through this as best we can. We all understand that addiction can happen to anyone....and I've never met one person who said they WANTED it or EXPECTED it to happen to them. For the diarrhea, you can take Immodium/Immodium AD, which is sold over the counter. For the restless leg symptoms that you may get, heating pads wrapped around your legs can be helpful, as well as a hot bath.
Avatar n tn This does happen from time to time. Seeking some religious therapy help to overcome this senseless anxiety and it does help little by little. Hope that one day, like you I will get to help people with anxieties like me. Much appreciated.
973741 tn?1342346373 Clearly they are born with talent as you have to be spotted early on to excel in sports -- it's not something you can start in your thirties and be great at. But the evidence as I'm aware of it is that, yes, a positive attitude and extreme focus does work for everyone if you can do it.
16335396 tn?1461337296 ) I think I'd concentrate on therapy for your son to learn his OWN techniques to overcome anxiety and deal with issues. I know with my sensory son, I really want to protect and solve it all for him. I feel he needs me. BUT, I also understand big picture. He has to learn to navigate difficult situations himself. You are on tract when you say that you want your son to develop skills needed to interact with difficult people.
973741 tn?1342346373 Our occupational therapist worked very diligently with our son on sportsmanship, maneuvering social situations, peer relations, how to handle bullying as this began to occur for my son (boo), how to mix in a group verses one on one, etc. This was very valuable. It does sound like your son has one on one friends which is fantastic.
Avatar m tn I try to think of things that would calm me down like sports or whatever, and sometimes it would work and I'd be fine again, but most of the time it doesn't and I have to rush myself out to the restroom to wash my face and get a drink of water to cool me down. This would happen at random times and I don't know how to stop it.
Avatar f tn how long did it take for your medicine to kick in? they say prozac can take a while. like 6 weeks. i can't fathom going another 3 weeks like this. my doctor gave me ativan to take. i only take like 1/2 of a 1/2 which amounts to .25. and i don't take it every day. i don't want to get addicted to it. did you have to take a benzo at the beginning before your med kicked in? i have a call in to my doctor to see if there is anything else she can give me in the meantime.

Avatar n tn I just wish there was a way that I could enforce how much I love her and how I never meant to hurt her in any way. I just want to be able to work things out with her and be with her. She means the world to me. The hardest part is giving her the space she asked for, but I have been respecting her wishes. I guess all I can do at this point is give her time to see if she sees a future with me and see if she can forgive me. I am a good person and would never want to hurt her...
5082295 tn?1371254511 you have to plan how to address the anxiety, you have said you suffer from anxiety and in the weeks to come you will need to work on your anxiety very seriously, the mental part is tough after detoxing and don't be scared, work on your recovery and all the work and effort you put into it, it will pay off later for sure... Work on the way your mind works, all the stuff that you have studied on psychology, it is a great moment to put them into practice :)....
651235 tn?1224885959 BUt the question I want to ask is, Have you educated yourself on how anxiety works and effects your body and what you can do yourselves to help your body recover without taking anything. Understanding and acceptance is the first step. Ask yourself this and answer it honestly. I can offer a good website and book to read that really helped me. Feel free to ask.
589870 tn?1222666787 but i have been on this site about 3 yrs, have done seminars for anxiety, and am soon to graduate in Psychotherapy and behavioral science. i just want to say not to sound mean BUT THERE IS SOOOOO MUCH WRONG INFORMATION IN EVERY POST YOU JUST MADE ITS PATHETIC..
Avatar f tn It's a BIG list, and it is constantly growing, Everyone is unique in how they react to anxiety. You are already addressing it, and are awaiting your that's great, I applaud you for that. The sooner you get moving on it..the quicker your recovery will be. And, with some time, therapy, possibly meds if you choose....recovery will come for you. I wish it happened overnight, but unfortunately anxiety is one of those things that truly DOES take some time...
Avatar n tn Thanks SO much for taking the time to post!! I have been a prisoner of anxiety for so long that I forgot how to live!! I am going to get some over due blood work done to check my thyroid.. I pray that these tests will shed some light on what is going on with me! I am a fairly logical, level headed gal, but when your body starts freaking out, it gets scary :( I will be posting progress updates asap :) Thanks again for giving me hope!!
Avatar n tn I hate what anxiety and stress can do to a person. what the funny thing in my life is, is that I go to the emergency room a lot when i get these same symtoms you all are talking about, and I get all these tests done, and it a different doctor, different hospital everytime, and they all have the same answer..that these symtoms are caused by stress and anxiety. One doctor sat and talked with me for a while and explained a little more...
Avatar f tn Also, there is a reason why people with hep b, hep c , and hiv cannot be prevented from playing sports-it's unlawful to disallow someone to participate in sports for having hep or hiv. This is because the risk to other players is very very small-so small it shouldn't be a worry. Also, imagine how many millions of people play sports daily around the world-whether professionally or not. Yet, not even one case of transmission exists. Here's a great link about all this: http://www.betterhealth.
603015 tn?1329866573 Ur thoughts and ur decision are made from ur brain, its ur spirit talking to each other, that's how god created us, to solve this problem, take a look in any form of religion, ur choice will be more clear n easier....... There will be more and more people like us, when it get to next year.. Oh by the way drugs are not helping on the decision too.
Avatar m tn what started the pills was me getting sick and they helped then surgery they helped more i had to have them to move now i cant .
Avatar n tn hi, i just wanted to tell you that i had very similar symptoms two years ago. people, friends and family didnt understand that i didnt want to leave the house or i had to get out then once out couldnt stand it (supermarkets were the worst).
Avatar n tn I've been in a detox center once which was wonderful cause my insurance and company sent me to the finest in the country!!! I want to cut down slowly. I have 2 daughters to raise, I need to be home. Is there a certain doctor I should be looking for to help with this? I'm taking next week off and going up to my mom's, I'm thinking of toughing it out up there. I don't know, even a month off of work or something. This stuff has taking over my thinking and I'm afraid....
Avatar n tn His heart disease and anxiety really ruled our family so I can relate to how you are feeling. It's very difficult to know what to do in this situation. I always wished that I had gotten my Dad in to see a counselor or gotten him some proper medication for his anxiety but he was much too stubborn for this. Would your husband consider such a thing?
480448 tn?1426952138 Of course, the fact that while having a high level of anxiety, we are SUPER sensitized to every sensation, feeling, symptom....adds to derealization and depersonalization. Also, you can have one without the other. Most of MY experiences have been with derealization, and I have a friend who suffered more from depersonalization...she explained it as feeling "numb' and more like an inanimate object than a person. The great news is..
Avatar f tn im 17 and also have anxiety, i have joint popping and pian in my limbs, i talked to my doctor about it and he says that any cold or flu/handover will bee 10 timess woures because we aree always on eage anyway, but i have these all the time to, also i have bad head, dizzy, andd get the felling that im falling,you should try and get back on track with your life, no pills cann get rid ov anxiety, its your state ov mind the you need to controll, and handel, best wishiess to youu,xxx
Avatar n tn Anyway, the point is that our body doesn't always accurately recognize proper environmental cues and the vagus nerve doesn't always know when and how to act. In other words, it misbehaves once in a while as a result of inappropriate stimuation. All sorts of things make the vagus nerve act out, including stress, anxiety, depression, illness and even ideopathic causes(origin or cause is unknown).
Avatar n tn I had all of your symptoms, I went to the ER 6 times in one month - I know how serious it can be and how terrifying it is. After 3 years of Celexa. I eventually stop taking the medicine. I just recently, now 27, have decided to get back on it to weed away the little anxiety that has started to creep its ugly head once again. I am not having near the symptoms I had before because I fully understand my disease.
Avatar m tn I am extremely active, I used to run 4-5 miles per day, play multiple sports. When I moved home I was unable to play sports because I didn't have the money to join the leagues and could only run. Still every night I would come home and have the weight of all the money I had to pay for my bills, the stresses of my classes, pleasing my parents and girlfriend, having no money to go out for enjoyment, and I basically felt guilty if I did anything but sit at home at my parents house.
Avatar f tn He takes karate 3x a week and doesn't want to go to that either. He got hurt in a bouncy playhouse, fell on his back and injured his sternum about a month ago and wasn't able to compete in karate tournaments, but he is fine now. He yelled at my husband this past evening like he's never ever done before. We grounded him from his computer and t.v. but my husband gave it back the next day.
Avatar f tn I don't get to step foot back into my home until about 8pm. How am I supposed to wait for at least a month to get my energy back? I'm on day 2 and the only symptoms I'm having now is the lack of energy, mental breakdown, back pain(original reason I started n these things) and a craving that is killing me. I just really want to give up. It's not the physical aspect It's the mental aspect and the energy factor that is driving me insane. I truly hate myself right now.
Avatar n tn I'm up to 10 to 15 a day now and take five just to get me moving in the morning. This is no way to live. How long and how hard are the with drawals from it? I don't want to live my life around this drug anymore. Just a word of encouragment some times is what I think I need and to know that I am not alone.
