Hi, I just joined this Team. I was officially diagnosed with anxiety and depression in February but have been dealing with depression for at least 12 years and anxiety for about 7. I have anxiety so badly at this moment that I can barely breathe. I've had it this badly all day, for a variety of reasons. I'd love it if some of you added me as SparkFriends so I don't feel like I'm so alone [in dealing with anxiety].

Mine are not that bad I am sorry, but I am glad you were able to be off your meds for so long and doing well. I am sure this setback will be temporary and you did not let it build.

Hello, I'm Jennifer and my panic problems have been coming back recently. Since around 2006 I've been learning to live with severe recurring depression and anxiety attacks that make me physically ill and keep me home from work.

I don't know anyone else that feels like this so I started searching for a team. The attacks happen when I'm sleeping and currently I've been off prozac and all other medications since March. I've been clean and healthy. Recent triggers led me to my doctor today and to this message board. The last 2 nights the panic welling up has been unbearable and left me physically sick (you would think I had food poisoning for 2 days). Breathing, stretching, journaling, yelling outloud for my body to simply STOP didn't work. So I have a little prescription for the next few weeks to stop this set back. Yes my exercise output has dropped dramatically since this started creeping in again, yes exercise really helps. Tomorrow I will hit the gym and get back into the swing of things. The Xanax will prevent the panic, so I will sleep and not throw up all night, so I will go to work and be successful.

Anyone else have panic that swells while your sleeping and crescendos as you're waking up from a dream leaving you in a cold sweat and running for the bathroom? I know it's a medical condition like an allergy to flowers, or diabetes and nothing to be ashamed of anymore

I'm 5'8" and determined to make a change now.

Enjoy your girls they grow up to fast and leave. I dread it so much.

Hi
My name is Lora and I am prior military. I have been up and down and now I am about 8-10 pounds from my goal (have been for a while now but last year I was about 4 to 5 pounds lighter than I am now) but I am 45 so the belly is what is killing me! I have a disintegrating spine so finding the right workouts and team may be a little tricky.
Maybe along the way I can find out a little more of who I am.
I need help and motivation. I live in upstate NY so we are getting snow now and it makes it hard for me to want to get out and walk, with the slush and ice.
My boyfriend and I will be hopefully moving into a house in about 2 to 3 weeks so that will help shape me up some I hope!
Canít wait to get to know everyone and get into better shape.

Hi Becky. When one throws a locked door, miraculously a window opens. What a change in your life for sure. Good news is you seem to have it accurately diagnosed and you are still young to be able to do something about it. Welcome and Good luck. Have a Happy Thanksgiving with your family.

Hi! I'm new..I'm a 43 year old mother of two and wife of one. I was diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder when I was 22, after having suffered with severe panic attacks since the age of 13. I was 95 pounds when I went on Paxil at 5'2" and now I weigh in at 152.5. It really killed my metabolism. I was on it for a number of years, then on and off and I finally found that effexor works well and doesn't cause weight gain. Now I'm so depressed that I'm so big. Never having to watch my weight it's very, very hard to be diligent about what I eat and exercise.

Good Morning everyone... I hope you have a very stress free day and get some exercise in, it really does help ... I always lower my stress level by about 5 points after a work out. Even if I just give it my all for 10 minutes.

be authentically you...
it's journey, not a one day hike.
