Things are going well today. Im a little bit more tired then normal. But I am getting by. I took many walks today, drank a lot of water. Eating well, to be honest that went well too. Just sitting here listening to the bird ((harvey)) sing and the radio. I love it when he sings. Although it tends to be a little loud when I want to hear a song that I haven't heard in a long time. LOL. I can't wait till payday....
My brother has had anxiety disorder since 1975 back when NO ONE even knew what a Panic Attack was. He had one after our father's funeral and had to go to the ER because he was sure he was having a heart attack at 22. The ER doctor sent him to a psych. doctor and from there he has been in treatment since, but he has always worked a full time job. He's on Lexopro now and several others. He likes to drink which makes it more of a problem, but he says that most men find they have no anxiety when they are drinking. Probably true but bad for his health. I follow Roby Mitchell, M.D. www.drfitt.com who graduated from Texas Tech med school and also has a PHD. He says most of the problem is thyroid and he does a lot of work with HORMONES since he feels that they control the body. He had advanced prostrate cancer and cured himself with diet and exercise. I found him when my son had Testicular Cancer. Check him out as he has a lot of vlogs on YouTube.

Things are going better for me then I thought they would be. When I say that I mean with the Anxiety. I usually had Anxiety at least one time a week for the last 15 years. And that means at LEAST 1 X per week. I didn't really notice any patterns, but I did notice that if I dwelled on questions like well what are they thinking about me, or what's going to happen today, then I would usually get it.
I went off my anti depressant called Lexapro. I was taking 10 mg's of it and low and behold I haven't had to experience those feelings since then. It is truly amazing what medicine can do to someone while it is trying to prevent something else.
I take abilify which prescribed in a heavy duty mg. for Scitzo-affective disorder. I used to be ashamed, but now I realize that there isn't a perfect person out there. Most of us have something or other at least one time in their life, and I will have mine as long as i''m alive, do I wish I didn't have it? Yes, am I controlling it? Yes with meds Does it hold me back? No not anymore, I am a bit insecure, but I'm working on it.
So anyway, I walked around the path today and I also walked my dog. I did some lifting weights 5 pounds and with squats and but lifts and such. But I find when I do work out I am HUNGRY all of the time. It's as if I can't get enough to eat. I do not know what that is about but I feel defeated.
So today was entry 1, I'm so looking forward to entry 2.
