Re: My Suggestions For Anxiety, Panic and Obsessive Thoughts

Nothing like some horrible obsessive thoughts to get your act together quickly, huh? Same thing here. I practiced meditation for a couple years when I had my first flare up of Pure OCD and Panic Dissorder in my early 20's and actually overcame my dissorder with just meditation. I lasted for many years utill recently. Now it is a combo of Xanax and meditation, but I feel much better and I attribute the thought control entirely to the meditation. Xanax doesn't stop your thoughts, but it does keep you from over reacting to them with panic. Meditation has actually been proven to change your brain physically. It is a very powerful tool in any type of anxiety dissorder. It is good to hear others are using the same tecniques and finding success as well. Keep us all posted on how you are doing. It is good to hear some good news every so often.

Thanks,
