Hello all. I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Meredith and I'm 23. I have had panic attacks for 10 years. I was undiagnosed until about 2 years ago. They just thought that I was crazy. My mom had no idea what to do. My dad didn't believe me. My doctors just thought i was plain crazy. Then I went to this doctor who specializes in panic and anxiety about 2 years ago and he talked to me and prescribed me Klonopin. I can't tell you how well it has worked for me. I am such a different person. I am not scared anymore. I can go out and go to places and talk to my friends and be more myself than i ever have been before. I used to be afraid of so many things and now I dont get rattled or scared or have panic attacks so easily. I haven't really had a strong panic attack since I have been on this medication. My life has changed for the better in so many ways! I hope that I can be here for people who haven't had such good luck as I have with getting this condition under control. I know how horrible it can be and I want to do whatever I can to try and help others who have panic attacks and learn to live life. Because i know from my experience that I let the panic attacks take over my life, i didnt leave the house for almost a year I would avoid my yfriends even my family. So what I can do I am here. I just wanted you all to know i know what you are going through and i am here for anyone who needs to talk. And I hope that when i have rough days which i still do occasionally that some of you will be here for me! Thanks

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.

A deep longing accompaniedby the deepest Love some days. The heavy fog mayreturn and the next day, it may recede.Once again, it's...
