" I am also a little concerned with Obama care and the impact that will have on drug coverage...or is that just an irrational worry (anxiety) that might be returning as part of the wean?"
Hi, there! Good luck with your wean. Not to put too fine a point on it, but you would have to be on psychoactive medications NOT to be worrying about the effects of Obamacare. It's a horrible, horrible plan on so many levels, and even where the ideas are good, the execution is unworkable. I'm in the healthcare field, pharmaceuticals to be exact, and every time I allow myself to think of this I am afraid because I can't see a healthy way out for this country.
Thank you for providing the information about financial assistance for folk who need these medications. It's similar to advice I've given dozens of times.View Thread
That's an awesome suggestion. For some at least, that could really help. When I used to be scared during my flight lessons (anxiety cropped up about forty hours in) I would sing to calm myself down, which would take my mind off the fear and also regulate my breathing. It works well... provided I (a) am in a situation to be able to do it and (b) remember to do it.View Thread
