    This is how you fight the Dragon!

    Many here know my daughter suffers with anxiety. She's been on meds and therapy in various degrees for over 10 years. I spoke with her the other day and she told me what was going on with her recently and I explained to her, as I do to many here, that what she was experiencing were symptoms of anxiety. I sent her the link to the symptoms page as well.

    This was her post later that day on FB....


    "Anxiety may win some battles, but it’s NEVER going to win the war.

    In the past few months, I have been experiencing severe anxiety, to the point where it has brought on some new and scary physical symptoms, and after 2 trips to the ER and finding nothing physically wrong, the conclusion is anxiety is playing dirty.

    Yesterday was particularly bad. Not only the mental anxious feelings, but physical too: headache, nausea, lightheadedness (yeah, thats a new one) my body felt week and it felt like it was gonna give out (another new one). But I fought the **** back. I did breath work, I gave myself a little pampering, and wrote it out in my journal.

    Over the course of this year, I have worked my ass off to be on a better place. Though there have been setbacks, and probably will continue to be setbacks, I will ALWAYS keep fighting, no matter how exhausting it is. I know now that anxiety is the biggest liar. I know that I am ****ing worth it, and I deserve to have the life I want!"

    That's how you fight the Dragon! I'm proud of her!

    FMP, tell your daughter from me that she's awesome.

    Her words are what I aspire to.

    Thank you for sharing this! I fought my anxiety too as a teenager and after visiting a psychotherapist I've got that the problem can only be solved by myself. I was taking anti-depressants for some time but I knew it's a temporary solution and that it won't solve the problem. I think your daughter got the right mindset on this problem.
