hi,I too have the same.Off late Iam managing my anxiety and attacks(esp on flight trips) throuh deep breathing techniques and omega3 fatty acids(they are really effective)I always make it a point to keep a betablocker in hand.
But my worries are about my heart as my bp constantly varies through out the day.A condition called labile hypertension and those who have an anxious predisposition are likely to have it.Wondering whether you have it or not...
Just a quick note to say hi!
Hello! I too have anxiety/panic, and depression to boot! Together we can beat this!
The best two sayings I have come across lately are these.....
"Live in day-tight compartments" which means shut out the past with a steel door and don't plan too far for the future, 2 or 3 days ahead is the most realistic.
"Everyday is a new day to a wise person" which if you learn to live in day-tight compartments you let every day be new from sun up to sun down. Sleep is our buffer or relaxation zone. Wake up and forget about the previous day, do not dwell on even the last day since it is past. Shut it off with a steel door. Now you can remember tings from your passed but don't stay too long. I wish all my friends the best on getting back to their normal self. God Bless.
I think half of all Americans are part Irish...me, too, descended from a family named ROSS. Hope you get better. I think part of the problem in our 30s is drop-off of hormone levels, normal as we get older! My doc says 70% of her women patients have insomnia, including herself!
hi cathy happy new year n merry christmas
a bit late pal hope u remember me
happy new year, hope you had a restful time and that you are feeling better.
ps notstalker have insurance there!!
not open and direct on is it carlisle road. i even know the landline number how sad is that.
i'm supposed to be going out on saturday to belfast but i don know whether to drink or not. or to start my medicine or if i can drink on medicine, ahhh the anxiety.
i'm finding cbt not too bad i still my odd things, like i dont give the dog medicine my boyf has too and i dont eat prawns or nuts anymore. how does your boyf handle it all?
heh do i still go to work i just moved sections away from all chemicals. its hard though still cause its still on the same building. i only moved from limavady for work my family still live in the 'vady and i'm home a lot. my first panic attack was 3 yers ago. i dont tend to have full blown attacks anyway i just have anxiety issues and i get CBT to try and help. what are we like?!! i defintely dont go out as much cause i look at people and think how are you so normal and happy. and i freak about things like what glasses have been rinsed with etc. its hard now because i got a bit of knowledge during my chemistry days and so everything is a constant mental battle. do you still work?
i'm 28, you?
i'm the same i read the leaflets that come with the medicines and think i'm going to develop all the side effects. i had an accident at work and inhaled a toxic fume and that makes me worry that i've developed severe anxiety issues thinking i'll develop cancer as a result. how long have you been like this?
hi there. i hope you didn't mind me adding you as a friend. i live in co. armagh but am from limavady of all places.
I just can't bring myself to take medicine either. i did take some anti-histamines for a week but the dcotor upped my dosage and now i don't take any. i'm such a chicken. what happened to you to stop you taking medicine?
Hi Cathy! Thanks for the note! I hope you're having a good day. Love that anxiety huh? I find caffeine free chai tea along with long deep breathing helps me to control my attacks or at least makes them not last as long and intense.
Thanks for sayin hi. This week's been better. But it comes in waves...as I'm sure you know. Trying to stay positive. Hope you are to. Drop a line when you can.
thanks :-). i wouldnt say that im completely beating it, sometimes ill get twitches and minor attacks. but i really wish i could live life normally again... go out with friends, get trashed, college parties...i miss that you know? i cant drink, everytime i do it aggravates my symptoms badly.. its a miserable thing...
Just a quick note to say hi! hope you are having a great week.

Just thought i'd say hello. Haven't been on here much lately i've been recording, and working on a new video. been really busy. but still have anxiety, and ocd. just try not to think about it as much as i can. but some days it still catch's up to you. no matter what you do.hope you are doing good.
You deserve a big bear hug! i am from the state of oklahoma usa
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I hope this prayer can stop one panic attack for you Cathy. If it does I will say a million more.
Hope your day was good.
Hi Cathy. thanks for the nice note and I am happy to hear that you want to stay around for a while. I bet your children are wonderful. Wish I had some. I love kids. Hell I am a kid.
I was actually born in Canada but my heart is in Ireland. I would love to go there and see my familys beginings. I know lots of people from Ireland and I will say everyone of them is a real gem. Such nice people.
I had my nose broken 3 times in Catholic school so I say I am a real Irishman, lol.
So how are your panic attacks? You will get over them in time. Everyone does./ I had them very sever and it terrified me. I always though about death and having a heart attack. Well my heart is as strong as a oxe and I seldom worry about death. In my family everyone lives into their 90's.
just stoped by to say hello. been so busy playing lately havent had much time,thought i'd take a break from it a couple days. we played tonight and i am exhausted now but everybody had a great time. hope your anxiety is doing good.looked at your pictures they are beautiful.
Just a quick note to say hi!How have you been doing tonight? I pray your anxiety settles down! Do you take anything for it? If not maybe you should speak with your doctor to prescribe something sometimes that helps.
