I often get many PMs about people feeling down on themselves during this process of dealing with anxiety and panic. While it is one of the toughest challenges anyone can face, everyone in this forum is doing it and for that give yourself a huge pat on the back. I know it is not easy, nor is it very fun losing ones self-identity and self-worth during these trying times, but do not discount progress. Progress can sometimes be gauged in very minute measurements like posting questions/concerns in this forum, getting out of bed, completing normal and everyday tasks that can seem daunting, etc. Remember, as in life, there are ups and downs in working through this. By choosing to confront this, you have already earned my respect and a HUGE pat on the back. Have a GREAT weekend!
