Hi, I am new to this group .. sort of stumbled upon it, but am very grateful that I did.

I have struggled with Panic Disorder and Depression for a very long time, but have been formally diagnosed 26 or 27 years.

I do take meds for both ... but only take the Ativan when I absolutely need it, which means about twice a day for the past month or so. I also see a therapist on a weekly basis, but because of COVID-19, it is via video conference calls.

My anxiety level is really very high right now so I am trying hard to use my tools ... namely distraction right now.

Welcome, Socal-Alf!

I think it's great that you take medications for your issues with Panic Disorder and depression. And I also think it's great that you're seeing a therapist. It sounds like you are getting the help that you need.

Thanks, Mike. I used to belong to a wonderful online group called Panic Support 4 you.... Unfortunately the group disbanded about a year ago. I miss them all terribly, but I am happy they have been able to get their lives back.
