My Names Shawn, I'm a student of Psychotherapy and Behavioral Science. I Have suffered from panic Disorder for 9yrs. I currently take 10MG Lexapro once a day, and will soon be tapering off as I Have my Panic Disorder under control and believe i can easily stay this way
[More] without Meds any more. I have helped many people over come anxiety or at least manage it much better. My hobbies are Photography, Philosophy, Politics, Computers, And anything else outdoors/nature. I have also done 2 seminars in different parts of the US for anxiety and panic. i see a therapist weekly, and a psychiatrist bi-weekly. Im here to help people cope with life and its difficulties as well as offer my wide variety of techniques and knowledge in the psych medical field. I have more than a few grams of wisdom threw experience.
Many People have Come And Gone in My Life so I would Want to Hope that Those I Meet Can Leave a Mark If Unfortunately they are Destined to just Pass Through rather than Continue Existence in my Cipher. So Id Say People Who Elevate Me as I will Do them. I've got my own negativity to deal with I don't need someone else's.If You're a Positive Individual I Can Dig that and we can Poly if not Then Like the Wind just Continue.
We ALL go through these cycles, KK. There are so few people who ever really and truly get rid of their anxiety/depression for life. Sometimes I think it's a myth! I'm 60 and have panic attacks since I was 12. Do you have any idea how many "cycles" I've been through in my lifetime? Hundreds! Literally. Sometimes I will be free of anxiety for 2 or 3 years and I think it's finally gone away, that I'm "cured." And then, for no reason, it comes back. I've just gotten use to it now. And you may very well be able to completely beat yours, I don't want to be so negative. But I like to be realistic. Panic, anxiety and depression are a *****, but there's lots of help and they don't kill you........so we must learn to cope. Keep writing.
Glad to hear you're doing OK! I'm hanging in here, too. Guess that's the best most of us can hope for these days.
You asked if I had Aim.........sorry, I use Crest.
And about the Yahoo messenger.........ah, would I actually know if I had it? Technologically I'm not the brightest crayon in the box. DOH
Take care my friend
