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.
I look forward to getting to know everyone.
