Dana: Just a couple of suggestions that help me deal w/my
pain/depression/anxiety: I listen to classical music to relax myself, it
seems to make me less tense. Also, I was given one of those sound machines,
you know w/the ocean, storms, babbling brooks, birds, summer nights (this
also helps me sleep sometimes). I've also had some relief with Biofeedback
induced by a Body Scan/Imagery tape (used w/a walkman for total sensation).
I've been given Depakote (anti-anxiety) & it works real well so far. They
have to take your blood level w/this drug to see right dosage is right for
the individual. And, most of all, this forum REALLY helped me so much w/my
mental problems everyone I know saw the difference! Good Luck & Blessed
Be! Karla B.
