God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

emoticon to the team! We are so happy to have you with us. My anxiety stems from my PTSD. I have learned most of my triggers such as loud voices or noises, violence, anger and feelings of inadequacy. I also have certain routines I try to follow when those triggers happen. I work with people who have law enforcement background and find them so calming. They actually have helped me form a support system with them as my core. My anxiety is not feeling safe. I enjoy going to places such as gardens or the park when I can enjoy nature but without many people around. If I am in panic mode I know that I have phone numbers of my support in my cell phone and remind myself that they are just a phone call away. I have a key chain from the Highway Patrol and rub it if I am anxious also. Life is Good! emoticon Nola

HI! I suffer from anxiety,but have not been formall "diagnosed" with anything. My father died in '06 and after that I experienced a few full blown panic attacks. I suffered for about a year, taking ativan when I got a little too nervous. Everything was fine for a while, but lately I've been experiencing anxiety again. For me, anxiety becomes out of control when I give in to symptoms like racing heart and sensory overload. This s really a HUGE event for me. I don't ever talk about my anxiety with anyone. Nobod but my husband, a couple close friends and my mom (and now the whole world) know that I've had an issue. I am SO excited to find out how other people cope. I do guided meditation, yoga, long walks and I drop caffeine when I'm feeling off. I've got an amazingly supportive husband who can always convince me that I'm not actually dying. So... that's me. Now I'm off to read the boards. Oh, and thank you for welcoming me in the email.

Nothing is hopeless, we must hope for everything.
