to the team. You are certainly to be congratulated in the hard work you have put forward in dealing with your anxiety and for the help you have given others. Dealing with anxiety in all it's forms is hard work and is constantly changing in adding and subtracting and changing triggers. Thank you for sharing, with us and others, your struggle.

I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Cassie and I'm from Northern Ontario. I'm 29 yrs old and ultimately wish to lose 100 - 125lbs.
I have had to deal with panic attacks, anxiety and depression for about ten years now. I am very proud of myself for the hurdles I have overcome. I am on the proper medication, I can identify stress now and express it properly. I've helped others in my life to understand what I go through. I've also been very open about my disorder and because of that, I've been able to help others.
My PTA reached its height during the 9/11 attacks. Originally, my episodes were focused around war and terrorism. After that calmed down, my PTA's morphed to be focused around fears of blood clots or brain aneurysms. I worked hard to overcome both fears but now my PTA's have to do with heart attacks and whenever I work out I have episodes. Its very draining, but I don't plan to give up and I hope none of you will either.
