Well I debated on what to do for a while. I really didnt know if I should post or not but here goes. As some may know I have struggled with anxiety, panic attacks and much more for over 23 years. I have worked several different jobs due to my anxiety. I would work a job for a few months and quit because I would start having panic attacks at work. I have not worked since May 15, 2009 until this past March. I took a job at a call center making reservations. Seemed to be a low key job that would not cause me any problems. I was very excited to be starting work again. I worked for two days and then the panic set in. I struggled for almost a month. I was 1 day away from being there for a month when I quit because of the panic attacks. I spent a lot of time in the bathroom hiding so no one would know what was going on with me. I was scared to tell them in fear of getting fired. I finally quit so I would not get fired. Anyway what I am getting at is I filed for disability last week. I hate to do it. They dont pay you very much and I loved working and having money to do things with. I just dont see any other way to get buy if I didnt file. I am wrong for doing this or is ok for someone that has this disorder to get disability? I have been in treatment for most of the 23 years as well. I have never talked with my doctor about going on disability but I have to have money to live on. Please if anyone has any input on this let me know. Thanks

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
