> Hi Girls
> Really sorry to hear your anxiety is making you feel awful and that 15 does not seem to be "kicking in". I just read the post about Trucker doing the tapes. My dad uses these relaxation tapes on all of his clients who have anxiety. He and his clients swear by them. I will find out there exact names and pass them on to you. They are a set of 4 tapes, which teach you how to relax by using muscle groups, each tape lessens your anxiety and the use of muscle groups and the final goal is that you are able to relax by simpley telling yourself too. As my dad says you cannot be anxious and relaxed at the sametime, you must teach your body/mind to relax and be more comfortable in a relaxed state than a anxious state. Good luck, I will write with the names soon!!!!

Hey trucker just read your post on the tape and listening to it as you sleep wow that is great thinking and I have heard of that before ...I'm supposed to be starting something called EMDR which is a type of hypnosis I think that is rapid eye movement and goes back into your childhood or whenver these terrible experiences happened and trys to reprogram your brain to tell it how you wouldve felt as an adult being able to say no and react instead of a child..not sure but it is a man that does it and not sure about that with the things that happened to me as a child but I think I'm willing to try it out....

> I have been feeling just horrible lately it has been 1 week on 15mgs and I just thought it would kick in sooner than this..I'm just sooo sick of waiting I just dont know how much longer I can wait to feel better...i'm soooo down and feeling no myself...But I hope that everyone is doing and will catch up when feeling a little better...thanks for the idea trucker it was a very good one!!!!...luvya Mystic

I have less than three weeks until my wedding. I am losing it physically and mentally, surprise. Our windshield cracked, our computer got struck by lightening, I had the 1000 dollar tooth, the sweet birdies outside our house left this weekend while we were gone, Ive gained five pounds, I get beat up by sixth graders,the boy I used to babysit in eighth grade just died of bone cancer, uncle has brain cancer, other uncle just got biopsied for tongue cancer... AND my dads sister, one of my fav aunts that has pancreatic cancer went into cardiac arrest last night and woke up this am saying DNR. She just bought her plane ticket to come to my wedding. she was doing well, and now, I am going to have a funeral.
Meds or no meds, life has too many twists and turns and I am fed up. I am trying to stop feeling so selfish but I am not knowing what to do or think. All of these people are people I grew up with...they are the aunts and uncles, and they are dropping off like flies. Pray, pray pray...i keep tellin myself.

Lexy, the best thing to do is to buy his book. It's call "the new Atkins diet revolution". You can buy it all Walmart for about $5. It will tell you everything you need to know. It is also a great inspiration to read on the days that you are craving food. I love the diet and find that it is very easy to keep doing. I have been on it for four months now and have lost 18 pounds. I went of the induction phase of the diet after the first two weeks and have continued to lose weight. I eat about 30-40 grams of carbs on most days but some days I eat more if I want to. I have not gained anything back at all even with some cheating when I want to. There is so much low carb food out there now. Try the Russel Stover sugar free chocolates. They were and still are a life safer for me. Also the lowcarb ice cream is wonderful. The Atkins breakfast bars are very good too. I also munch on peanuts when I need a quick snack which Atkins allows. This morning I tried the Arnold low carb bread and it was pretty good. The atkins breads were yucky!

Buy the book and read it and I will help you in any way I can. Good Luck, Mrs. C

Anakin, life is a beautiful gift! It is full of problems and tests that we must experience. I feel terrible for you that you are going through so much right now and I will pray that you find the strength to make it through. I can't imagine what you must be feeling. I hope that you will take this one piece of advice: Life is so precious, treasure it because you never know when it will be taken away from you.

We are here to help you through! Hugs, Mrs. C

I'd just like to plug the double double quotes feature at this site:

http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/faq.html#amazon

The first time anyone refers to a book without using this option, I post this to try to make sure he or she at least knows about it. It's just an option, though, and doesn't *have* to be used. If people *choose* not to use it, I'd be interested why not, but I'd like that redirected to Psycho-Babble Administration:

Anakin - I am so sorry to hear about all of this. Your wedding will be a bright spot for your family! A happy celebration that reminds them that there is a future. Hang in there sweetie! Don't forget to delegate whatever you can to whomever is available! God never gives you more than you can handle. You will rise above this!!!

Trucker -
I've been away from the computer for a while and am just getting caught up. What a great idea - to tape positive thoughts and listen to them all night. You are one wise woman! Thanks for the tip, I'm sure we all could use it :-). You are also completely right about not being able to do this alone. Why is it we need to have something really bad happen to us before we realize that - wake up call!

How are you doing? Did you have any side effects when you started wellbutrin? Does it help with weight gain or the voracious appetite I seem to have on Lex? I've gained 25 lbs. on Lex, just since January, and I've always been too thin so I know it's the Lex and not just turning 40 (at least I sort of hope that's all it is .... !)
~ Lynne
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

one day at a time.... tell your self each night when ya go to bed tomorrow is gonna be a wonderful day... positive attitude helps tremendously...yex i am on lex and welbutrin. 20 mg lex 150 mg of wel...pray level with GOD and tell him ya need his help... my down fall was i thought i could do everything with out anyones help.. and in actualality we can't do a thing with out the LORD our GOD. so in order to receive we must ask.. knock and the doors will be opened for you!!!that is how i have made it thru the life i have. we have to reprogram our brains to be happy.. positive! happy! i was once in such a bad way that i finally desided to expeiment with my subconcious mind. i made a tape speaking softly to me saying all positive things... i am happy, life is beautiful, i love me, people good, etc... and i played it as i slept... on one of those tape players that keep flipping them selves over and over all night while i slept. it gave me a positive attitude and you can tell your sub that you are happy and it will reprogram you. if ya don't believe me think back to school days, when people made fun of ya or called ya names, it did something to you deep inside didn't it??? this is a way to reverse all the negative and bad things that have made you feel less.. do you understand?? sometimes i don't explane things real well..

Hi Mystic & everyone -
I've been out a few days and last week was crazy here at work so I didn't do much posting. I'm blowing off work for about an hour this morning so I can get caught up over here :-).

Mystic, I'm so sorry you're not doing well. I've been up and down myself. I can't seem to kick this feeling of dread and this malaise, plus the fogginess and negative thoughts about myself. Some days I'm fine. Others I have hours where I start with my obsessive, panicky, negative thinking and then I get angry and prickly and mean! I'm still on 20, but am going down to 10mg for the week of my period and the week after - then back up to 20mg for the next 2 weeks. We'll see if that helps. I went down to 10mg last week and that was not a pretty sight at all, but it was the wrong week to make a change!

I can relate to hating the ups and downs and hating feeling this way - when there's really no good reason for it, everything in my life is really fine for the most part. I'm tired of the weight gain too. I've gained 25 lbs. since January and that is just not like me. I haven't weighed this much since I was pregnant! The treadmill 3x a week is not enough. I ordered some Pilates tapes. Anybody do Pilates?

How are Ryan and your daughter doing?

Hang in there and try to find some postives each day. I think Trucker has a good idea with the tapes. Take your vitamins, eat your veggies, exercise and get enough rest. What else can we do? Hope your new therapy treatment helps. Releasing your past has to be a really good thing, however it can be accomplished. Please keep us posted!

Hi guys,

Lynne now that you mentioned it my appetite went from suppressed on the lex to now - I can't stop craving food. I thought it was just my period but that came and went and my appetite is still uncontrolable. I hope this passes.

Has anyone else felt this way on the lex?

Hey everyone, I have been feeling so good lately thanks to my increase to 20mgs. But yesterday I found a swollen lymph node on my neck and that sent me into an obsessive panic. I haven't felt that way on a long time. I went to the doc today to have it checked out and she eased my mind a bit. I realize that I need to let it go but I don't know if I can or even how to do it! I could really use some help with this. Can anyone give me some ways to let this go and not worry. I will appreciate any advice! Mrs. C

Dear Mrs. C,

I know worry is horrible. It brings up ugly reactions like stress and anxiety and even panic attacks, and it is usually about something we have absolutely no control over. I am almost completely worry-free now though. The following is a Bible passage that I try to live by (from "The Message" Bible):

Phillipians 4:6-7 "Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."

It was a process of continually laying my worries and cares at the Lord's feet in prayer, and then making a conscious decision to not pick them up and worry about them again. But like I said, it was a process. Many, many times I would find myself worrying about something just after I just prayed about it, and I would have to deliberately lay it down again.

I'm not sure this is what you were looking for, but I hope you will give it some consideration. It will be a wonderful day when we come to the place that we can completely just walk away from worry forever. God bless.

 

hey guys:)

hey everyone, hows it going? i know i dont post often anymore but i still read the posts. i am doing pretty good except for a slip up on the weekend..ugh its stupid but i decided to chill and smoke some pot with my boyfriend and i guess i had too much and went in to paranoid panic mode and it really sucked so i decided that i guess its best to stay away from drugs period, not that i smoke often its usually twice a year..but i just wanted to see what would happen and i guess i got my answer. im anticipating school in the fall, looking forward to keeping the mind sharp and looking forward to panic free days that i hope will come soon, sitting in a classroom with an anxiety disorder is NO FUN..
im really happy with my boyfriend and i dont know what i would do without him, i havent felt this way since i was 17! its wonderful. i think i need to increase to 15 mg of paxil from my current 10mg but i am going to talk to my doctor about that this friday. i just dont want to go through all the side effects all over again, blah..but if its what i have to do then its what i am going to do.
nothing exciting happening here in Canada, the weekend was a long weekend cause of Victoria day and well our camping trip was cancelled cause it rained all weekend! typical..but i just hope the next one makes up for this one.
hows everyone else doing?
is anyone cured? i need some positive reinforcements! lol, i think we all do..;)
maybe there is no cure, just a comfortable level of happiness and stability.

have a great week everyone, i still think about you all.

goodnite, and sweet dreams...

Jlynne are you still around?
