Great article on depression, anxiety and panic attacks

Thanks for posting this article Jeff. It is interesting what people suffering from depression and anxiety have in common. The always available underlying fear every morning, the record that plays over and over in your mind telling you the same negative messages etc... It really doesn't matter who you are or what you do for a living the similarities are breathtaking. I often wonder how this happens to some and not others. Is it a physiological/chemical imbalance? Or, perhaps a life experience?
I agree that Talking about it is the way to go. Thanks for the read. Peace to all!

VERY GOOD READ, Jeff, thanks! Mary's review was right on as well. [And of course, my regards to the writer for his bravery and honesty putting it out there]
I guess many of us fancy ourselves 'Iron Men (and Women) , and often find ourselves trying to 'battle' these internal ghosts, whether they're organic or external in origin, when 'understanding' we all as humans have our weaknesses and some self-forgiveness is okay.

Thanks for sharing,Jeff. Very relevant for many of us heart patients. Certainly resonated with me.

Thanks for this. Even when you think you have it figured out something like the events of this year comes along and "sweeps the leg". Sometimes it's hard to want to get back up again. One thing I've realized is that 3 1/2 years of working diligently on better health is hard work, when you get a routine down you stop thinking about how hard it is and just keep doing it. Bumps in the road are one thing but a year like this is just too much. I'm trying to be less ******* myself and start over making small steps to get back to where I need to be. I did it before so I can do it again and I'm actually starting off in better shape than last time so I just need to keep moving forward. I definitely feel like most of the people in my life take my strength for granted and the internal battles are entirely my own to fight. I hope everyone here finds the support they need. I know it gets better and this will pass. Be well. - Steve
