Hi there my name is AmyGirl or you can call me Amy. I have been dealing with panic attack disorder for 7 years now. I have been dealing with agoraphobia for 3 years now. At one point I was homebound for 2 months and my panic attacks were every day all day literally. Hours and hours of pure misery. Depression has been off and on through all of this to. I hadn't been to a store for over a year some stores 2 years. So one day I fought back and have come to a place that I never thought I would come to. The panic attacks are few now and I have went more places that I ever thought were possible. I still don't go anywhere alone. One thing I am working towards. Coming to MDJunction a little over a year ago has been one of the biggest parts in my recovery. I think that actually talking to people first hand that have been through it all is the best. Without this group and all the wonderful people I would not be as far as I am today. Thank you so much for having me and I am so honored to be a group leader.
My real name is Richard.
I am a happily married geezer 60 years of age. My health issues are kind of a who's who of conditions. I have Crohn's, Fibromyalgia, Dengenerative Disc Disease, Bursitis, Tendonitis, arthritis, leg neuroprophy, sleep apnea, Restless Leg Syndrome, Anxiety, Depression, TMJ, acid reflux, rapidly deteriorating vision and whatever I forgot to list. Oh yes, bad memory! I have worked helping people for 36 years before having to take a medical retirement in 2010. Coming from a military family, I have had exposure to many people of a variety of races, colors, religions, nationalities, and sexual orientations. My best point is open mindedness. My worst is the stubbornness I have to overcome to let my best side step up. I love the opinions of others if they are stated as opinions. Keeping fact from opinion is a must for me. It is my true and unblemished hope to help people and learn from them. Togetherness is more powerful than totality. If it hurts, let us help!
Hi, my name is Nancy and I've had panic attacks for more than 25 years. I spent most of those years trying to figure out what was wrong with me and if I was crazy.
Five years ago, I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder and PTSD. Then it all finally made sense.
I am honored to be a group leader here and am always willing to share, listen, and help when I can.
Hello my name is Phyllis or those close to me call me Phil. I have had Panic Attacks, Anxiety, Mild Depression and Mild Agoraphobia, for 11 years now.
I have learned alot of coping techniques over the years, and know first hand how frightening and alone one can feel. I enjoy helping people. Professionally I have always worked in that field. If I can uplift or make a difference in a life, I feel useful. I remember when I first came to this site, I felt alone, scared and hopeless, I was unsure if anyone would reply. Today I feel fortunate to have found this site and all the wonderful people here. I have learned so much and shared so much.
I have a place to go to now and it has made such a positive difference in my life! I felt like such a freak of nature for so long, that I didn't know what to expect here. I comfort those who need it, I am kind hearted by nature, I always make time to be a good listener and I do not pass judgment on others, I guess I treat people, as I would like to be treated, with respect.
I am truly humbled for the opportunity to be one of many wonderful Leaders of Panic Attacks Support Group at MDJunction.
