    She finds any post I make and hurls abuse at me offering no benefit to anything that has been said. She ruins every thread I make. I have no sympathy for her, and you guys can go get a room!

My first step to getting better is truly understanding what anxiety/panic disorder is. Understand its side effects, and once you've truly understood stay off of GOOGLE!!!! Stop thinking you have every disease in the book because you will drive yourself crazy. As far as Meditation/Yoga/diet/workingout/supplements/medication/therapy you have to do your homework on it and understand that this part is trial by error because what works form someone else might not work for you but you should not be discouraged. I've tried countless things that either helped or did not but I finally found what works for me and I am able to manage day by day. So like Panic said and its the most important thing to understand "You have to do the work"!
    Real great response! Very insightful!

Everyone here that went from panicking freak out mode to normal mode has 1 thing in common, they all had a strong will to do the work!
    Well said PanicCured. I know we have not always been on the same page - however your thoughts here are dead on target with my own.

    Try not to take things too personal with how others react. I upset enough people myself with how I express my truth. A lot of what you have to say for me is true enough. Most people can't handle the truth, but don't let that ever stop you from saying what you must.

    You have been as supportive as Gypsy and or any other well meaning member of this forum. I can even say the same of my peers I have on ignore. We are all in this together.

    Once again - for me ... your initial post in this thread hits the nail on the head and best describes my genuine intent with most of what I say ... the doing is more important than the message itself. It takes a LOT of work. In this I know your efforts in what you write are well reflected.

    Peace Brother and or Sis.

    Many things in life require effort. Their is an old song by Ringo Starr, which is titled "You know it don't come Easy", which is what overcoming anxiety can be equated to.

    I do agree though, its takes work to get better. I've been making some positive (and well thought out) changes this year to improve myself. I realized expecting other people, pills alone, the forum alone could not solve my problems. It takes will and determination. I know I will get there hopefully sooner than later.

    Okay: On your mark.. get set.. GO.. LMAO Gypsy - I might have to agree with you there

    Do you think you may be the first person to quote Ringo Starr? I don't think I ever met anyone who listened to Ringo's solo stuff. Pretty cool!

    I figured as much however just wanted to be sure. Matters little to me either way.

    Keeping in tune with this thread, here is is a song from my play list that goes along with with Kirk's Ringo Star Quote:

    No Easy Way Out - original version.

    Helps me to keep working when things get tough. Although does not mean we have to beat ourselves up.

    It is pretty funny. This place is a sausage fest.
