Just a quick tidbit of positivity for a Saturday evening...
This is just an excerpt from a discussion I had about medication for anxiety. I suddenly got the urge to share because I realized how much this helped me when I was in this person's shoes...
The medicine just helps to make it easier
not to have anxiety or depression (ideally), but there's no "magic
pill." You also have to change the way you live and the way you think.
It's a tough challenge, but I think you'll end up feeling like a better
and stronger person when you get through it. I mean really, as
depressing as all of it can be at the bottom (I know, I've been
there...), seeing how HUGE of an obstacle it all seems now... just about
every test you're put up to in your life AFTER anxiety/depression will
seem like a walk in the park. You've lost your life, but you're going to
get it back. And when you do you're going to have so much more
appreciation for it. The first panic/anxiety-less day will seem
brighter, happier, and more full of possibilities than any day before...
Sorry, I did not intend for my reply to be so full of cheese, but
really some positive spin can go a long way.
