Hello everyone! I have just joined this wonderful site in hopes of getting help and guidance with weight loss; and I am so pleased to find all of these different "SparkTeams" to join to give and receive support! Fantastic!
I try to be a positive person most often, however, I do struggle with anxiety and depression. I have been prescribed Xanax PRN for my anxiety. If it gets "too bad" I am to take the Xanax every 6-8 hours I believe. I try very hard NOT to take this medicine as it is habit forming and I am extremely paranoid of being dependant on it to "even me out". =( I have an aunt who has been taking Xanax since before I was born...and she's STILL taking it like crazy. I realize she and I are two different people...I just really don't want that to be me.
I'm very happy to be here and I'd be very happy to meet new people and lend support if I can give any. =) Anxiety has directly affected my weight as I am a stress eater. If I get too anxious I feel like I NEED those cookies. I recognize the behavior and am working within myself and my doctor to address the behavior and try to "fix" or help it.
Thanks for reading my boring two paragraphs...I never know what I write =( lol Glad to meet you and look forward to getting to know people here!
