I'm a SURVIVOR

Posted by: pworden on Thursday, May 03, 2007

I am a depression and anxiety/panic survivor.  After going through thousands of dollars of tests from cardiac to intestinal I FINALLY found a doctor who diagnosed me with depression with anxiety and panic disorder.  She told me that depression is not a mental disease, but is rather a medical, chemical disorder of the brain that is treatable. 

She prescribed Zoloft 125 mg. o­nce a day and told me it would take about 10 days for it to begin making a difference. I began to feel the depression lift and it is better everyday. However, she did tell me that the anxiety is something that needs to be treated with psychotherapy. She recommended a specialist in this area and I attend therapy every two weeks to try and understand why I am so suceptible to these attacks.

I am getting stronger everyday as I work o­n controlling my emotional self not to overpower my intellectual self. I know that this is a life time struggle, but 4 weeks ago, I couldn't eat or even get out of bed. I felt that even God had forgotton me. All of the joy of my soul was gone. I NEVER want to be in that place again. My survival included getting a through medical exam and getting counseling.

May God bless each of us as we struggle. There is HOPE for all.

Sincerely,

Peggy Worden

Dear Peggy,
Would you answer the following questions for my intervention project at FMH?
I'm a grad student and am troubled with the lack of care given to panic patients who enter the emergency room. Your answers would help me quite a bit. Thanks! Cherie :)

Yes, you are most definitely a survivor and have a great attitude toward your acceptance and recovery. If you can try and stay with a psychiatrist of your choosing for a multitude of reasons. Good luck to you.....Ed

Anxiety & Depression

I believe that anxiety and depression cannot be cured by medication, but it only suppresses the symptoms of the problem, and it doesn't get to the root of the actual problem. How our bodies respond is a direct reaction from our thought process. Fears, anxieties, and depression is a direct result from the wrong thoughts which goes way deeper than just this physical realm.

For an uplifting voice, please contact me. I am here to listen. The first 30 minutes is free and you decide if you want to continue on to the next step of getting your life back. You can only gain by making this phone call.

I am so glad you are getting help. I, too, am admitting
I have anxiety and I am getting counseling. I can't tell
you how much I can relate to you.
