I'll leave my email posted for a short time for anyone that wants to contact me.

jodyannrn@hotmail.com

All I've been feeling the last 8 months or so is mainly anxiety.

p.s I've eliminated all caffeine from my diet months ago.

I've been diagnosed with a form of OCD, severe anxiety and panic disorder.

Sweets, I don't know what type of nursing you do, but perhaps a change to a less stressful area would help to some degree.

Kat, on the upper right hand corner of this page is a heading: quick links. Click on the "My Private Messages". It will open a window where you can put in sweets' user name and send her a message. Her reply to you will come back to that inbox and you will know when she's replied when you look over and see in parentheses (1 unread message). It's really neat. It's how I communicate with other cl's and CM-Tasha, and other board members when needed, though I much prefer to keep things on the board so that a variety of input and perspective can be gained.

I changed my schedule to nights so it's less stressful.

sweets35..I am so sorry to hear about your problems. Have you tried counseling..usually meds should be combined with therapy..All I can say is..it may be hard to realise this now..but what you are feeling is temporary. It WILL pass. I am so sorry to hear about your 14 year old. When is Dad going to take responsibility? I think your first priority should be YOU..can you get help from your family? Take it a day at a time..I really think talk therapy will help you to deal with this..I always feel good after a talk with therapist..even temporary..it still helps. Focus on yourself first and the 2 little ones. Dont give up..remember what you are feeling is temporary. Yes, there are times I think something should happen so that decision of being is taken away from me. But those feelings pass. I look at people who are in bad health and still fighting. There is a young girl here who just got diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. There is so much suffering in the world. When I think of all that, I try to look at the positive.
hope you feel better.

Sorry..haven't been in the board much lately. will update later my saga.
