hey, I'm new to the team. Here's my dirty laundry to air: I haven't been diagnosed with anxiety, but I have thoughts about getting help because I feel it is leading to depression. I've been anxious since I was a child and often resort to rapid hand movements to deal with any strong emotion. My diet soda pop addiction does not help things. Thankfully, outwardly, I'm a poker face and rarely get excited. But, sometimes I don't listen well because I digest internally over others talking. Of course, these last two traits don't win me many friends, lol, and sadly, I'm ok with that. Like many of you have mentioned, I also get rapid heart movement episodes. Luckily, my husband is awesome and has dealt with emotional disorders himself. I am lucky to have a cat who is in love with me too lol.
Hi my name is Kathy and I have been diagnosed bipolar with a severe anxiety and panic disorder. I had a nervous breakdown five years ago and haven't bounced back like some feel I should have. I hope that you are enjoying sparks.
I've been getting familiar with SP over the past several weeks and am just now getting around to figuring out this team thing.
I suffer from moderate anxiety and panic attacks (and suffer is the right word) but have been doing fairly well for the past six months on daily Celexa with a side of as-needed ativan. I've had generalized anxiety for at least 15 years and now have what I consider to be PTSD about the dentist's office (very bad experience resulted in a root canal).
I also struggle with disordered eating and have joined a SparkTeam for that -- anyone else here in both groups?
I'm very glad to be here.
