I know that I am not the only one out there with such problems, and I often realize that simply discussing them helps a bit. It is frustrating knowing that last November I was basically "another person", and that my medical condition began in late Feb early March, 3 weeks after the birth of our son. I was so happy: the anticipation, the prepping of the room and all the other things which one does. I witnessed his birth and was overwhelmed emotionally. Everything was perfect and then, out of no where it hit me. Panic and Anxiety attacks accompanied by all of the great symptoms which one can imagine: skipped heart beats, heatflashes, pains and aches, stomach problems, and so on. Naturally I went twice to the E.R., multitude of tests, exams, cardiologist, blood work, ultrasound, etc., etc. Conclusion: great shape but your head is causing all of this; burned out, stressed and then finally to a neurolgist who diagnosed me with GAD accompanied by Depression, (post-partum). Naturally everything took its viscious path and I was given antidpressants and am now undergoing tharapy, (Behavioral). I have good periods and I have bad periods. It is frustrating because I would like for the problem to disappear just as it appeared: overnight, but I know this will not happen. Any thoughts or comments would be helpful. Thanks to all out there.

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...
