Advice & Tips: My Psych therapy not only helps me recognize the sources and triggers for my anxiety, but it has helped me open up to discuss my anxiety with my wife and adult children.

Advice & Tips: The right therapist is very very very very very difficult to find, but extremely effective if you can find him/her. It is often too stressful to go through the search, though. Especially for someone experiencing depression. I found a therapist who incorporated mindfulness meditation techniques and was very happy with her, but my insurance did not cover her. I may return to her at some point, but right now I am doing okay with my meditation practice and the meditation groups that I attend. Plus, my friends' support has been awesome for the last year.

Advice & Tips: Using the computer and its search engine on the internet I learnt a great deal about my problems, was able to self diagnose which was later ran by the doctor (psyciatrist) who confirmed my diagnosis. Late I started using dialectal behaviour therapy using their daily diary/record sheets which in the end had a big impact on my daily life I was able to break from the confines of psycological withdrawal/isolation. Now I am learning to mix with people again first on a small scale slightly increasing over a period of time. This also impacts greatly on my lack of range of movement due to spinal damage and breathlessness due to the fybrosis.
