Anxiety board

I have d/p too, at least that's what I think it is. I've had it off & on for almost 5 yrs. & some days I was convinced that I was dying. I've been tested enough for other possibble illnesses now that I should just accept what the DRs tell me,(anxiety disorder) but I have a hard time believing them b/c I feel soooo out of touch & totally weird when it's happening to me. It's really hard to explain it to someone who's never had it. When it happens it feels like my life is being ruined, it would make anybody depressed! My neuro wants me to see a therapist & take drugs for it. I've been totally against drugs in the past b/c of some bad experiences with Paxil, but I may give it another shot b/c I'm so sick & tired of it. I also tried natural remedies, but they just took the edge off. Now that I've been diagnosed with a heart problem, on top of everything else, I stay away from most of those too.
I'm not sure what the answer is, I wish I could be of more help! But you are definitly not alone, and I don't know about you, but I find some small comfort in that. I wish you luck! K.
