How now? Here things are OK. The nice summer weather does help. How's it there? Been beading much lately?Are you able to get out & socialise?Am lucky enough to have a great wife that supports me in all I do. The fact that she's had Parkinson's Disease for last 10 yrs has not dampened her vitality. She just gets on with whatever she can do & seldom mentions all the other things she can no longer do. Without that support I'd have certainly checked out. Marriage is good for me ~ I got the best of the bet when we married, but she's still with me, so must have been doing something right?Hope things are going to improve for you soon. Hang on & you'll get there, not easy I know, but you can do it. Good Luck, George

How's the beading going? I have an animal's horn that's decorated with small beads, probably African ~ must have taken a lot of patience to complete. Guess it's a satisfying hobby, especially when you are pleased with your results. AOK here. Hope same there. Best wishes, George

How's it going?Been busy last week, went camping, just overnight,but it was well worth the bike ride through thunderstorms/hailstorms & high winds. Really felt 100% alive. Mood continues good ~ bit manic sometimes, but that's something I'm used to. Able to control your moods now? Have set a new weight loss target, still have flab to lose. Lots of support from others has helped to keep mood going well. Wish the same for you. Do you do the same kind of beading as the Africans ~ I have what I think is a small cow's horn, which is covered with small, multicoloured beads ~ very attractive. Must take more patience than I have to do that kind of thing. Best wishes.

Very pleased that you are feeling well. Stress seems capable of causing anything. Relaxation, done any way you can is certainly a big plus factor. I'm still feeling very good & put it down to several factors, being on this site, gaining some control over my moods, accentuating the positive, eliminating the negative ~ as Bing Crosby used to sing. Maybe you're too young to remember that song?Weight is responding well. Off on a bike ride soon, while Mieke my wife is swimming. Keep the upbeat mood going, can't expect to be happy/unworried all the time. but it's great to get any relief. Best wishes.

How are you today? I'm doing very well indeed. For some time now I've felt in a really good, stable mood ~ that's priceless, as I'm sure you'd agree. Had a great holiday in Holland, put on 2½ lbs in a week, but it was enjoyable doing it. Can quickly check the gain, but the important thing's that I feel well again. Still taking the necessary meds etc. No way do I want to have anxiety/depression attacks again. Being positive does seem to help as much as the meds do, it's good when feeling in control of ones mind again. Best wishes, let's hear how you're doing when you've time.

How's things today?Better without anxiety I hope. Concentrate on anything good that happens to you, or you think about. Ignore the negative things as best you can & you'll be fine. All's good here, weather's good, nothing to complain of. So nice to be free of anxiety for now ~ Best wishes.

Who wants a 'normal' woman? Am sure you're fine, as you say, their loss. Anxiety is a *******, Mine's diagnosed as major along with depression. I fear the anxiety more than the depression. Mine never leaves me either. am working very hard to take control of my moods, & so far it's working. Meanwhile before your appointment try to use any way of relaxing that you know of. I wish you luck & hope that you get well & free of this ******* curse!

Hope you are feeling well & that things are going as you want them to?Lovely weather here in UK at moment, all the blossoms are out & the wildlife's abundant. Good to be alive. Hop that you are able to get any help you request. Here our much maligned Nat. Health Service has been extremely helpful to my wife & myself. No complaints. Did you look online for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy/Meditation? Not necessary to pay for it if you live in UK. Probably not so there? :Best wishes.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy's a talking one. Not available widely in UK, but I've been lucky enough to get some after my condition has persisted for c.20 yrs. It's basically welcoming the positive thoughts & ignoring the negative ones. Look online & you'll see all about it. Meditation's just a way of relaxing by sitting/laying down & breathing deeply/slowly & trying to ignore any thoughts that come into your brain, as they do ~ have you tried it? Well worth putting in some daily time for it. Hope you feel better as the days go by & get well again. Best wishes, Gofio

Have you tried Cog.Behaviour Therapy?It helps to get you to see things in a more positive light, dismissing the neg. thoughts & generally helps.It helps me. Being diabetic's something I've fortunately no experience of.  Anx/Dep are more than I can manage without meds at present. Hopefully I'll get off all drugs one day. Bes wishes, Gofio
