I have been 7 or so years 'normal'.
Since I was 17 or so (before that there were signs) I have dealt pretty significantly with anxiety/panic. It would get really bad.. and then 6 months or so, of being okay and it would cycle like that for years. I was on meds for quite a long time, and it seems to really get everything under control, so much so, that I've been off meds for years!!!! THe last week or so, I've been feeling very anxious and a couple times to the point of panic.. I thought I knew how to talk myself okay... but this time, it is not so easy. I keep thinking about what if it is something different, what if there really is something wrong with me this time.. I'm struggling.. and these message baords helped TONS back when I was younger, so thought I'd reach out again.
:( I don't like that i'm back here!
