    What do you want people to say? if you're that concerned, go to the doctor. "Told Ya So Gang" on standby

    ... Iím confused.: told ya so? I understand your frustration with ďpeople like usĒ but to be honest your lack of compassion doesnít always help.. it kind of makes me want to skip past what you say... and makes me feel more disrespected- you must have anxiety issues or have had them in the past if your here... you must know what it feels like, and honestly, I hope during your journey, you werenít pushed down... again no disrespect towards you- but a little understanding and compassion would be appreciated.

    Maybe all this would make more sense if you knew that a few months ago a rabid bat was found outside on the ground of a public store ( Kohlís) just 1 mile from the beach I was at...

    What's confusing about it? After THREE YEARS of rabies threads, what do you want or expect? In that time, in spite of a few CBT sessions, has there been any progress, self help or long term (meds) real life professional help to help you deal with the irrationality of your fears? Lack of compassion? How can one show compassion to someone that continually shoots themselves in the foot and allows it to bleed out? Disrespect? How is it disrespectful to point out reality? Shouldn't reality reassure you?

    Yes, I suffered with depression and 'scanxiety' after my real illnesses. The difference is I sought real life professional help, took meds, worked hard and moved on as opposed to allowing it to control my life. As far as why I'm here? I originally came here after following HA sufferers from the cancer forums I was part of to this site. I came to give them a piece of my mind for the disrespect they showed on that forum as well as other disease forums. I stayed to offer some rationality to the irrationality so prevalent here. Also, as my daughter is a sufferer, the site offered resources and advice that has helped me help her. What I say here is no different than what I say to her when she goes off the deep end. Apparently, some don't see it that way so carry on.

    So yeah... go to the doctor. Maybe show him the tread and see what he says. I won't comment on your threads any more.

    Best of luck and as always....

    Re: Was stung/bit by something on the beach.

    I think the sad thing here is the curtain that the web allows to be able to hide who people really are. If you knew me, like actually knew me- you would have a much different opinion Of me. I run a full-time business have dozens of repeat clients, and tons of friends, I have a lot of support, an amazing husband and an amazing family. I travel all over the world, and take more risks than you probably would guess- if you knew me- you might not be so assuming that I allow things to control my life. Iím an extremely huge extrovert and love to keep myself busy, active and go out.

    For my my HA is a sin struggle- Iím a bible believing Christian, and yes I beleive that I have a spiritual enemy that likes to push my buttons all day long. Iíll go through months where Iím okay, and months where Iím Not. Just like an alcoholic or someone who is a narcissist- I donít believe medication is the route for me as I donít believe I have an imbalance- this forum is a place where when Iím alone- and my mind is wandering I come to to seek reassurance and help- not because my friends and family are sick of me- but because my friends and family donít deal with the same personality struggles I do- Iím an enneagram 6, look it up.... Iím a loyalist worst case scenario thinker who is always trying to protect my herd... and I strive for safety- unfortunately I canít turn it off when it comes to myself... so here I am trying to pull back the curtain.

    Iím sorry for your ďreal diagnosesĒ but for someone my age I have had a few ďrealĒ health problems-honestly Iím probably your daughters age.... This isnít a place to compete- my dad died when I was 21 of prostate cancer- my aunt and my husbands grandfather both had an incredibly rare disease, my grandmas... breast cancer and Alzheimerís...- Me having to be tested for a heart attack/ blood clot and lupus at 23 when no one knew what was happening opened me up to a world of things I didnít want to know existed.... so unfortunately I have experienced things that have set me on edge even more...

    Not trying to make anyone feel bad, but hoping that someone else stumbles upon this and hoping that other people see , read, and remember that there are real humans with real lives behind these messages.

    Mental illness is a real problem, though, and I don't think anybody here is denying that. However, with the correct help and a lot of hard work, it can be overcome.

    However, if you're not prepared to acknowledge this and put the hours in, it can be a nightmare. It's also indiscriminate - it can affect absolutely anybody regardless of circumstances. You have a great life? Congratulations; you're already better off than a lot of people here.

    None of this changes the fact that seeking reassurance is actively unhelpful to your condition... or your "sinning". Good to know I'm weak rather than unwell, that's a great way to brighten my day.

    Iím sorry but I think your badly misunderstanding and projecting a lot of what Iím saying. Iím saying that despite having anxiety- you can still have a happy life, the good and the bad can coexist at the same time...I love my life, but I still have anxiety- doesnít mean itís right- doesnít mean not working on it..
    Just means that we are complex as humans and can live in both realms at once.

    Never said you were weak... never said that at all.
