Hi ?

Does it matter what lables we carry, i've had a few and now believe that I needed to know that deep inside that I am OK. Today I am Tom and I always carry anxiety with me, that is me. Before I used to drink and eat to cope with this, and I still do to a lesser extent... Medication helps, but to me it often masks emotional stuff I need to process, but have never learnt how to from a disfunctional childhood... Hope this helps... welcome Tom emoticon

Hey all,
I've been in this group for awhile. Just not that active. I guess maybe I was hopeing I really didn't belong (sorry, not trying to put anyone down, I was in denial). I was hopeing there was something else wrong with me. I haven't drove in over a year. I had my first panic attack while driving 3 years ago, I had my almost 6 year old (3 years old then) in the car. It was the scariest thing I ever had happen to me. I thought I was going to die with my daughter on the side of the highway all alone. So after having a few more attacks a year later I was put on a beta blocker...which did nothing. I am still not driving. 3 doctors later it is official, I have an anxiety disorder and what ever it is called that goes with it where I hyperventilate. My, hopefully, official doctor (2 doctors left town) has put me on Paxel. I had plans on drinking tonight with my husband, so since all over the warnings it says "no alcohol" I will be starting tomorrow and drinking tonight. :)

Seems I am going to be more active in this group, and this site in general, I am trying to go back to school and also start my own photo business ( I know I am taking on a lot), I need to drive in order to do both, my friend is going to go into the business with me so I have transportation there but I need to take control of my life again. So I hope you ladies are up for handling my craziness ( my husabnd is all out of And maybe I can help some too, I have always been the supportive type.

Any advice on experience with Paxel would help wonders, I only have experience with Zolof and that was years ago.

And of course I will be hungover tomorrow...I know not advised.
