Re: Trying to Change

Sorry for the difficulties with depression. It can stop us in our tracks at the most inconvenient times. Yours may be similar to mine, and be a chemically induced depression. I required medication to get back into balance, and it was for about a year, then I was weaned off of it. Perhaps consulting ...

Re: Another timid hello

Hello, Tina. It's nice to meet you. I think many of us have these thoughts at some point. I was too chicken to try, convincing myself that if it didn't succeed, life could be much harder, either for me and/or my family. What if I just ended up brain damaged?

Re: Hello to all

So sorry you are dealing with this, but glad you sought out treatment. Crowds sometimes bother me, too. One thing that helped was slowly increasing the number of people I was around. Open spaces worked better than closed in ones. And I positioned myself for quick exits if I felt overwhelmed and need...
