Kath, I try to have a good attitude. It is hard. But I think it helps in the fight against the anxiety and depression. Well not the anxiety. I get panic attacks in the weirdest of places and i have xnanx for that. For some reason, my p-doc is not worried I will develop an addiction. So I am taking them and they help. I never realized how much anxiety I had until he pointed it out. I think the anxiety came first and untreated then the depression ensued. Just my thoughts though. He might disagree. But we do that from time to time. You see I am taking an active role in my therapy. I have to it is my makeup. So I guess maybe that comes across as a good attitude. I hope so. For I am flashbacking to some dark days and I hope I can maintain this.

I am glad you talking helps. I hope the group therapy helps you. I have a friend that is a therapist and she says group has saved her. She tried one-to-one but she said being a therapist she could not stay in the right chair. Group helps her do that. She is able to stay a patient. She has been doing it for over a year now and doing so much better last time we spoke and she refused meds. She wanted to try this first and then go to meds not both at the same time. She said then if she got better she would not really know what helped. Makes sense I guess.

Good luck.
What do you do for your anxiety. I have found this yoga I do really helps too. It is mainly breathing exercises. Helps me focus and clear my mind. Plus you feel energized afterward.
