> Hi, JC,
> Omigosh, I can totally relate. My husband now asks me every day, "Did you exercise today?" He doesn't get it, either. I think exercise definitely HELPS but isn't a cure-all for those with a true chemical imbalance. Effexor really seems to be helping me with the anxiety--I wake up feeling GOOD and not overwhelmed. For about a year doctors have been trying to diagnose me with various illnesses based on the symptoms I give them; then when they run tests/bloodwork, everything comes back negative. Of course, I then worry and think they must have missed something. Now I'm thinking it's all related to stress and anxiety and me believing I have some horrible disease and just ruminating so much my body reacts, physically.
> Maybe you could start out taking just one class...something you're interested in but that doesn't sound too overwhelming. Then, when you succeed at that, it will be easier to take another, and another...It's hard but I think if we can just close our eyes and jump into whatever it is we're afraid to try...we'll find it's not nearly as big and scary as we make it out to be in our (hamsterbrain)minds. :)
