I have been feeling well lately, in other words I miss my friends on the Forum. I think about them allot. Even though they are just phantoms on my screen we have so much in common.
My journey on Med Help came after a bad bout of Anxiety - I came here for support and answers to my questions. I got everything I needed, felt better and went on my way and I am feeling bad about it. I have been checking in often to see what my friends are saying and doing and will continue to do so.
I was sooooo scared to start on Medication for my Anxiety - and when I did, the info & advice I received here was amazing. I'm still taking my Zoloft, just a tiny dose now and plan on quitting soon, it really helped me through this rough time in my life. My friends here taught me about addiction, side effects, withdrawals - things my Doc seemed to just shrug her shoulders about. I was prescribed 3 different meds including the Zoloft and something in my gut said it was too much. My friends here told me to "proceed with caution" and that was the best advice I have gotten in along time - Thanks.
Because of the Forum I have started painting again and it feels great. I have gained a great tool for coping with my anxiety (which I have had all my life) and am so thankful. It was a long hard winter and summer is here and it's so nice. So for now I am enjoying feeling calm and centered, I know I will stumble again - the anxiety is in me and always will be so the Forum will remain on my Google tool Bar! All in all I am still here and watching you all, hoping your journeys go smoothly. Have a nice weekend my friends, you are appreciated!!
