emoticon Jamie!! I've had anxiety for that long too! Had my first panic attack that I can clearly remember my senior year of high school, the teacher was a stickler for not letting anyone leave her class. So I told her to let me go to the bathroom or I would vomit on her desk. Not something timid little me (at the time) would normally do, but you know how it goes!!

I have had the crummiest run with therapist. None have actually taught me grounding techniques. One of my BFF's (we met in a mental hospital of all places!) taught me my first one, and walks me through it when she is available to. I'm so glad you learned grounding techniques! The therapist I just switched to seems to be the best of the lot so far (please don't let me have just jinxed that!).

It is very nice to meet you too, and I hope to see you around on the forums! emoticon

Just wanted to introduce myself. Iím Jamie; nicknames: Bosco, Bo, Boscopud. Been dealing with anxiety, one way &/or another, pretty much as far back as I can remember.
Began experiencing panic attacks when I was a teen, but never diagnosed until adulthood.
Learned grounding technique to help with the panic attacks. Itís made them far less scary and I usually can cope my way through them anymore. The general anxiety can be a roller-coaster ride from day to day though.
A good friend has helped me understand what Iíve been experiencing and that has helped tremendously!
Itís very nice to meet you all. Iím very happy to have found this team. :)
