    Hey Penny,

    Sorry you didn't get a quick reply. This forum can be quiet at times.

    How's everything working out for you a week on from this post?

    I like your analogy of a fast food system, Sal. We're usually given enough to prevent us from dying, but not enough to really nourish us.

    Certainly describes life in the UK atm.

    Possibly. I know Jung talked a lot about incorporating our light and dark sides. Therapy is one obvious way of doing that, but I'm sure there are others, too.

    I'm sure others will chime in with their experiences soon. What I'd say, though, is to make the whole thing seem low pressure, and fun.

    What I find hardest about mental illness isn't the symptoms,...

    It's still a good site. I just feel her absence sometimes. Nonetheless, thanks for the links.

    It's very quiet here without Gypsy. She had a warm soul and enriched every thread she was in. I hope she's doing ok.

    I want to add that you're certainly not alone. I'd say a huge percentage of people on this forum have had similar thoughts and fears at one point or another.

    Sorry to hear about your uncle. No wonder these fears are weighing on your mind.

    Have you been to your doctor for a check up recently? It's always good to get a once over if you're feeling unwell....

    Hi Tracy,

    Nice to meet you. I'm from the UK, too.

    Have you been to your doctor about your anxiety, or are you working on it by yourself? You can private message people on this forum. I think...

    Sometimes mental health charities run various group therapy sessions. Maybe there's a charity close to you that offers something of use.

    Are you out of foreign jail now?

    And how come you don't like Gypsy? You two always seemed pretty friendly.

    I've experienced that a few times over the past ten years. You're right, it's exhausting!

    I don't really have any tips to help you overcome what you're going through. In the past, changing my...

    If you think you might be suffering from reflux, you could try using an OTC antacid. If it helps, you'll know what you're dealing with and can make lifestyle adjustments to ease the problem.

    There's a lot of literature which suggests meditation isn't the panacea it's made out to be. Some suffer ill effects after practicing it. Others never really see any positive effects at all.

    When we bottle up our intense emotions, we actually become the source of our own anxiety. We become scared of our shadow, so to speak.

    Some people with GAD experience emotional blunting. It's like their emotions are turned down 20% or so. They require more stimulation than others in order to offset this blunting effect.
