    Hi Shannon,
    I and probably everyone else on this BB has been where you’re at right now,
    dear. I know I was the week before I was diagnosed. As soon as the blood
    work came back as GD, my doctor put me on beta blockers and prescribed
    a sleeping pill (the same kind they give you in the hospital). The beta blocker
    made a tremendous difference, the sleeping pill didn’t phase me. But eventually, the beta blocker helped me (Idon’t know about anyone else) to sleep also. The tremors nearly stopped and my pounding
    heart went back to almost normal. Are you on a beta blocker? At any rate,
    you need to see your doctor. There is no reason for you to suffer like this. God bless…

    Boy, can I relate to what you are going through. Although I’m feeling much better now,
    in the midst of the anxiety I wondered seriously if I was loosing my mind. That, of course,
    only made me more anxious, vicious cycle.

    Remember it is the lousy disease. Try to block the thoughts out and replace them
    by something positive. Moment by moment. Try doing skilled relaxation, see if you
    can get a tape to follow from your library. Exercise helps dump the excess adrenal
    fluids…so if you can do aerobics, or ride a bike. It all helps occupy the mind, too.
    I’ll be praying for you…I know how very frightening this is!! Glynis

    Hello everyone,
    I’t been a while since I visited, I am very depressed, and having
    alot of anxiety lately. I have the shakes so bad I can hardly
    write this. I think I’m overactive again, went to the dentist
    told him why I was so shakey, he replied `sort of like when I have
    to much coffee right?” NO I DON’T THINK SO! I feel like I’m losing
    my mind and I want to tear my eyes out. I must sound insane, will
    sometimes I think I am. Sorry to be such a downer,I’m going to
    have another good cry for myself, Thanks for listening.
    Shannon.

    Whenever I get really depressed, I try to think back to when I stood in front of a mirror 6 years ago having heart palpitations, shaking, losing weight- and thinking I must have a brain tumor or cancer. And saying “Please God (and I’m not even religious) do anything you want to me but don’t take me away from my children. Well, there’s no danger of that (unless I’m in a car crash because I can’t see (knock on wood), so I try to remember it could be way worse. KarenG

    That driving when you’re blind really sucks doesn’t it Karen! I always used to think, man if that guy stepping off the curb only knew I can barely see him he’s stay out of my way! :)
