If you have anxiety or panic disorder, then find a friend that has many of these qualities.

I don’t usually write about family, but I had a mother that suffered with depression most of her life.  This was very hard to deal with, and I am not going to say more about her.

This affected me from childhood, and I would have panic attacks from being a young child, and continued all my life.  I have learned to deal with it, but I believe that we are always recovering from it.

At one point my husband spoke to my parents, as her depression was affecting me.  I needed to be with people that had harmony, gratitude, love, comfort, laughed, and were fun.

So for a short period of time, I had to stay away from her, to get myself well.

Mum passed when she was 80, and it was a blessing for her, at her life could have been so much better.

I am writing this, because so many writers here suffer, and the most important thing for me, is to be with positive people.

  1. Totally agree. After years of narcissistic abuse by her father, my wife has finally realized he has a mental disorder that she can not fix. It has been over three months since they last talked and she is much better off for the distance. We can only fix ourselves and being with or trying to fix another’s problems is just not healthy.

  2. This is so true. Being a medical intern, I see so many of my batchmates, my friends, their family members suffer from a whole spectrum of mental health disorders. From anxiety to overt schizophrenia. It is disheartening to see how people who are into creative arts or are healthcare providers suffer themselves. The stigma of being associated with a mental health disorders is huge. So much so that even opening up to someone is a task in itself.
