  • How to support our adult son with anxiety?

    Our 24 year old son has anxiety and is in recovery for alcoholism (self-medicating). He lives in another town. We financially support him but our ability to continue is fading. He is on medication but refuses or is unable to get started on cognitive therapy. If it was just his addiction, we would be "co-dependents" and advised to tell him we will no longer support him financially unless he is in treatment. But this is a mental illness. How much support should we give? Is it helpful or harmful? What impact on him if we tell him he has to move home for financial reason? Do we candidly lay out our concerns knowing that compounds his anxiety? Thanks.
  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
  • Is there a buddy system where we can support each other during episodes?

    I think it would be great to have some sort of buddy system where we can count on someone to communicate with (doesn't matter how: skype, messaging, etc) that would benefit each person get past their episode.
  • ok so i have the most supporting boyfriend in the world, he is fantistic. He thinks my worrying is "cute" how can i make him see that what i'm feeling is infact controling my life.

  • Thinking about starting a local support group-any advice?

    There are absolutely no support groups within two hundred miles of where I am, and that's just sad. I'd really like to start one. I have a place and a time (conference room at my school, two hours once a month). I know how I'll advertise (I'm a teacher so I can advertise at my school, at the other schools in the district, and at the college here in town.) I'm also going to keep a running ad in the paper. I also want to call the local behavioral health centers and see if I can get some of the doctors to come and give presentations on certain topics, suggest strategies, etc. I'm also going to want to serve refreshments. I really want this to work-this current obsession is keeping my mind off of the depression/anxiety that is worse than it has been in months. Is there anything I'm forgetting? Anything I need to keep in mind? Do I need to advertise for a co-leader to help me out? This is as much for me as it is for other people who have nowhere to go and can't afford professional services (like me.)
