Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety therapy toronto


539024 tn?1270582597 lol I am agoraphobic and claustrophobic, have social anxiety, GAD and panic and yet I managed really well. Sometimes we need a push to do the things we really want or need to do. I went to Florida because my sister has lung cancer. I would normally never go to Florida at this time of the year (or ever) if it weren't for my sister. It is hurricane season and mating season for aligators...a huge fear of mine was meeting up with a gator which is not uncommon when one lives on a golf course.
Avatar n tn My Mother has been suffering from Anixiety and now more so depression over the last 8 -10 years. It started off with light headedness and than has slowly made her less social and now at the age of 73, she is falling down a lot.

Avatar m tn Welcome! You have found a great many of us have been where you are (or are still there in varying degrees). What you describe absolutely sounds like agoraphobia. If you search this forum using that as a will find all kinds of posts related to that. Also..I have a few journals about it (some were posts taken from a lengthy thread we had going on the subject.) I actually hope you are able to find that thread....

Avatar n tn Hi Dr. H. I wrote you months back regarding two instances of protected sex with women (i slept with them 3 times each). Since, i have asked them their status and they vehemently denied HIV infection. Both are educators and both were having affairs. I am very certain they are proponents of safer sex methods as they initiated the condom use with me (although i wouldn't have dared do anything without.
Avatar m tn Scientists are also making progress in finding the biological markers for behaviour associated with depression, anxiety, fear, anger and other symptoms of mental distress like obsessive-compulsive neurosis. Markers are essential to understanding the anatomical basis of mental disorders, diagnosing them objectively, and following their responses in daily life situations. 2.7.2.
539024 tn?1270582597 in many ways, but my anticipatory anxiety has just hit me like a ton of bricks. I've been doing ok until today when I just started the panic attacks. I can't eat, sleep or even think straight. I used to travel a lot and love it (except for the plane trip which is a huge phobia for me) but as I get older, I seem to enjoy it less and less. Paradoxically, once I get to my destination, I'm usually's the anticipatory stuff that just kills me.
Avatar m tn (e) interpersonal and social rhythm therapy which helps a patient with the condition deal with relationships and standardize routines and sleep behaviour in an effort to prevent manic episodes and avoid incapacitating depressive reactions; (f) exposure therapy for complex anxiety disorders as well as BPD and (g) vagus nerve stimulation(VNS) in which electric pulsing completely quashes the symptoms of depression.
Avatar n tn He has some characteristics of AS, but not all. He has High anxiety Some perseveration, but not on the same topic Lines up toys rather than playing with them Toe walks Very poor social skills No friends Rages The problem we are facing is that he is exhibiting all the signs of ODD in addition to his AS. He constantly defies us. He purposely annoys and irritates. He lashes out physically. He screams blood curdling screams. He sneaks and does what he is explicitly told not to do.
366811 tn?1217426272 Currently I am seeing a Clinical Psychologist for my anxiety. Therapy has helped me very much face the demons of my anxiety. I am a stubborn individual so I insist on not receiving meds to help with my symptoms but I will not rule out ever taking meds. So those of you that are struggling with anxiety and panic you have come to the right place. Reach out and find people that you can relate to and you never know who you might come across. It is a small world so open your eyes, heart and mind.
Avatar m tn there are thousands of ACT clinicians around the world and many more in sister approaches such a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy or Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Modern acceptance and mindfulness-based methods are giving consumers a sensible, evidence-based alternative to dealing with their suffering, and that is a big step forward (for more information on resources available see the website of the scientific society developing ACT.) 3.
Avatar n tn It’s really starting to get out of control, and take over my social/professional life, even causing anxiety and panic attacks. So I started seeing a GI doctor recently. At first he ran some blood work and that came back fine. No gluten or lactose intolerance (which was my first suspect). The doctor then asked me to take a SIBO breath test (Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth). This is a simple breath test that can tell you if there are abnormal amounts of bacteria in the small intestine.
460185 tn?1326081372 Hi You're not a stranger anymore = ) I do go to therapy and agree with you about the combination of meds and talk therapy is preferable to just meds. Group therapy helps too if there is a group around. Since my background is Métis (half Native, half white), I tend to follow Native ways but I still do read the Bible. It is a sort of one step at a time to get by, just like you said. Hope to hear from you again. Hugs to you ....
Avatar m tn I got a job as a security guard on what was then Canada’s tallest building in Toronto. And so, this has made 70% of my life, 52 out of 70 years during which I manifested some obvious features of a disorder of some kind: SAD, D, MD or BPD—not every month or every year but at various times in these 52 years.
181575 tn?1250202386 A 2007 study indicated that the cumulative probability of virologic breakthrough associated with entecavir resistance was 0.8% over 4 years. 4. Combination therapy (CT) using telbivudine plus lamivudine and monotherapy (MT) using telbivudine alone in a 2005 comparison of 104 patients did not show a difference in effectiveness. 5.
Avatar m tn I found this forum 3 or four months ago and began occupational rehabilitation therapy after reading the post about somatoform syndrome. This has been a big help with relieving the neck pain and building better postural strength so that I can actually sit in a healthy position while driving i.e. not slumped forward with my neck tilted and pinched at the back - basically retraining my body so as to get rid of all the old bad muscle memory.
Avatar f tn We moved to another state about a year and a half ago, and of course the Tramahell helped me with the energy and gumption I needed to get that done. I was more social and outgoing and made some friends in our new home. But......Since I decided to stop taking Effexor, (because the Tramadol took my depression away) , and then I decided to get off Tramadol, I have descended into a place that's darker than I've ever experienced.
Avatar n tn 1. Was able to take steriods within 3 days of onset symptoms . 2. Presidisone + Ear Injections ....==== Did not help or see any imporvement for 1st month 3. Then i started heavily on the Vitamins (B12) + Magnesium + Gingko + Antioxidant .. for 3-5 months continous .. Gingko showed great results atleast intially 4. At last out of much frustation i have used Cinnazarine (anti histamine) for tinnitus .. this really helped my tinittus is almost softer now.
Avatar f tn Some of her services will probably include past life regression therapy, future life progression therapy, chakra and crystal healing, Reiki, soul coaching. Geez , I wonder who she's taking after? Most likely, distance healing through skype, would be available. She's looking for a short and catchy name possibly including the words: spirit, awakening, soul, purpose, love, light, healing, life, earth, magical, inner, wisdom, circle, heart, bliss etc Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn I know that can cause tinnitus, but if you're on aspirin, you shouldn't stop it. The other symptoms could possibly be anxiety over the TIA (I know I have anxiety), but if they can't find a reason for the symptoms, maybe you should see another doctor or ask for a mild tranquilizer since your job is so stressful. I know cutting out caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate, all soft drinks) helped me greatly. It's really important to cut out caffeine, and that means all caffeine, not just reducing it.
Avatar n tn after going through my primary doctor and an endocrinologist, i think maybe i have a severe food allergy somewhere.
Avatar n tn It's important to remember that as sympathetic as people (docs included) can try to be, anyone who has not SUFFERED with depression or anxiety CAN NOT truly understand how debilitating it is. You do not need to suffer. I have transitioned between paxil and prozac seamlessly by tapering one, while increasing the other (slowly). If your doc won't do it, find one that will.
356518 tn?1322267242 Hi, My name is Kat and I've been lurking here for a few weeks now. I'm happy to have found such a great, supportive community! I have suffered with pain since I was a teen. I'm 32 now. I've had several surgeries for degenerated discs and have widespread pain that is worse when I do normal activities (like mow the lawn, play with the kids, weeding etc.) Some docs say I have fibro, but I haven't bought that yet. My mom has RA. I've been tested for RA and lupus and both are negative.
Avatar n tn for Meineire's except to avoid salt, stress, cigarettes, etc but I would highly recommend cranio sacral therapy for the ear pressure issue.
Avatar n tn The fact that your ectopics have been visualized and deemed benign should be extremely reassuring. If it isn't, then you have a different issue, which is anxiety. I understand where you are coming from, as I spent years worrying myself (literally) sick over benign ectopic heartbeats. Sometimes I can go months with none, other times I am having several a minute including other atrial arrhythmias like SVT. Ectopic beats are not deadly in a structurally normal heart. Even a lot of them.
