Social anxiety recovery stories

Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety recovery stories


127512 tn?1193745816 I am just curious. Is anyone getting social security disability for anxiety attacks? I have suffered for many years.
193245 tn?1189993322 Its a bit long but i have tried to put everything I wanted to know from success stories when i was in the throes of anxiety. Firstly though as a bit of background I started suffering from anxiety about 4 months ago triggered by a past event. The past event was nothing serious but it triggered the anxious feeling in the stomach and from there the anxiety took on a life of its own independent of the initial trigger, worry about the worry.
Avatar n tn Hi Brenda, I would say never! I am dealing with the same question. I had SSHL in November. Left ear completely deaf. I was told there was a minimal chance of any recovery. I saw numerous ENT's. The recovery timeframe I heard differed with each doctor & seemed to be based on their personal experience with the few SSHL patients they had cared for. Most people seem to think there is a primary recovery time & a longer term recover time.
Avatar n tn Everyone please remember, they can hear you and need to be kept informed with what is going on not just with their recovery, but also family issues, the weather, success stories about stroke recovery etc. Strokes cause extreme depression so it's good to constantly reinforce that they are not fighting alone and that you are striving to help them improve. We have combined an arsenal to fight for my father's recovery. Prayer, faith, hope, love, energy healing, research etc.
758077 tn?1282599161 I would have thought the anxiety would have gone by now. I know sleep will help, but I need to get rid of the anxiety first.
Avatar n tn He then told me that I have panic disorder, general anxiety disorder and social anxiety, he gave me luxtanil to help me sleep and seroxat CR 25 mg (paxil). After reading horror stories of paxil, I decided not to take it so he gave me cipralex (Lexapro) 10 mg and said its safe and helpful and its side effects and withdrawal are much less than paxil. I am still afraid to start the medication to tell you the truth.
642313 tn?1244075322 I sought out two sorts of people, those, in my shoes but more advanced in their recovery, and real success stories, that is folks who are closing in on a year or more clean and happy and healthy!!! Those folks helped guide me thru my personal fight wirh this thing. They gave me conviction and courage and hope. I tried to stay away from people who seemed to wallow in self-pity and recidivist professional quitters who seem to relapse and re-quit.
Avatar m tn yes i used to get this all the time just like you i thought i was dying from a brain tumour,and our stories are so similar because i too have just lost a friend to 3 tumours on her brain,but believe me everything you are suffering are pressure headaches tension and stress,which in turn plays a big part in the way it all effects your muscles because you are so stressed you are tensing up which will cause the nerves in your muscles to tense to causing the numbness,your mind is a powerful tool whic
Avatar f tn , before reading all these stories was getting more and more frustrated with my slow recovery. But I see it could have been so much worse sooo......
Avatar f tn The most common recovery period is two weeks at home. I can't imagine a mere 3 or 4 days to recover. Is this to remove a cyst? If so, what size? Do they know how many laparoscopic incisions they plan to make? (it is usually more than one) Sometimes a person goes in for laparoscopic surgery and ends up getting a laparotomy (open surgery) when the small incisions are just too small for them to work. That requires an at-home recovery of about six weeks and a longer hospital stay.
Avatar n tn self diagnosis doesn't work. I used to think I just had social anxiety disorder. come to find out I suffer from the traits but my real disorder is schizo effective bipolar.
Avatar n tn Can recovery from addiction become an addiction? I feel as though I am consuming myself with trying to recover?
Avatar n tn One thing I find most troubling is I don't find a lot of success stories from people via the net with their anxiety. I'm not sure if it's because they aren't out looking for info and posting or if the success rate just isn't very high. I find the web very informative but sometimes I think I should avoid reading more about anxiety treatments, meds etc.
Avatar f tn My daughter has been having a lot of physical symptoms that the docs can find no reason for. We are about to start seeing a psychiatrist. Will the psychiatrist be able to determine if her "somatic disorder" is caused from depression or anxiety.... because she doesn't seem to have either. Is there different medications for depression and anxiety? And will there also be psychotherapy involved.
Avatar n tn Fortunately I take 20mg of Lexapro every day and .25 or.5 mg of Xanax (when needed). I have heard many stories about taking any type of anxiety medication while pregnant. I am not pregnant yet but I am already worring about what is to come. My husband and I have talked about what we will do when I get pregnant. He is going to do everything he can to keep me calm and stress/worry free. I am also very fortunate to have family that is ready for the "fall-out".

Avatar n tn Im glad to read your doing better...our stories sound very similar. I have also been told that its anxiety...I have serious appetite disturbances too..Im the exact same...if i go about my day then the pain is minimal but if i pay attention to it it gets a lot worse..Sometimes I feel like I will just lose my mind or become horribly ill at any moment...I feel like the pain in my head is related to a physical problem that has yet to be diagnosed...Isn't that crazy? BTW did you have an MRI?

199177 tn?1490502134 Success stories - I think that's what my boyfriend needs. He thinks it is impossible to quit his oxy addiction, so he's not even willing to try. I would love to give him some hope.
Avatar f tn I have been treated for anxiety and depression. My son who is 20 is depressed with some anxiety and is taking Zoloft but doesn't seem to be getting any better after several years. He can sleep for 18 hours, get up for a few hours and then back to bed again. He can sleep all day, and sometimes be up all night. We can't seem to get him into a routine. Sometimes he eats properly, if he's up, and sometimes he eats very little. No rhyme or reason to his life.

784382 tn?1376934640 i still havent filled it yet because im nervous about taking meds, i dont want to be on them for forever, i just want to feel better i was having a few good days, im thinking the therapy is helping, i been trying hard to use the CBT tools she is giving me and i been forcing myself to go out of the house to the park,the mall where ever it doesnt matter i just go and it does calm me down, and then yesterday was horrible.
Avatar n tn This spring and last (at the same exact time, when oak pollen was strong) I got the constant burping and anxiety. For me, taking some Tussin product helped somewhat. Anxiety and allergies seem to go hand-in-hand for me and can produce some weird symptoms. Sometimes it helps just to know that's all it is. Hang in there!
