> Hi Adrift,

> And I'm sorry to hear that you're having a hard time recognizing how unique and wonderful you are. You are very special, IMO, because you're the only one that gets special treatment in Babblechat. Apparently you are SO cool that Dr. Bob's server cannot manage to keep you in the chat room for more than a few minutes at a time. I think this is a badge of pride- you are the Babbler that Chat has never tamed!

:-) thanks

> Anyways-- talk therapy can help you say these obsessive/exaggerated/illusional thoughts out loud- to get to the root of it- or at least the point where the branch attaches to the trunk of the tree.
> Pdockery can help too. I have a lovely little tendency to worry and get freaked out about stuff that I did (or even stuff that I was *worried* I *might* do!) seroquel is good for those unwanted intrusion-type thoughts. SSRI for many other OCD and depressive/anxiety symptoms.

I got myself an appointment with T, which was today and it went ok, the diagnosis was "normal anxiety" considering my circumstances at the moment. I must say that I am not completely sure that I agree but I am not the T.. Adding antidepressants were suggested, I am thinking about it, I have a prescription in hand if things get too bad, although I know that ad's dont work THAT fast. But overall my T does not feel that "talk therapy" is what will help me?? He felt that I need to change my lifesyle. In other words, "just do it" attitude. So, it sounds like he feels that my excessive worrying and depression is a result of me not doing what I want to do, Im just passively living my life. If I knew how to fix that, I would! As for concerns about eating, he reminded me of what happened last time I wasn't eating right. That hasn't really knocked sense into me yet, but I hope it does.

Thanks everyone
