    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    The Fight With Anxiety
    ddnos posted:
    I use the word "you and your" not to mean YOU, but it's used more as the universal you, as in all of us.

    The Fight With Anxiety

    Anxiety prowels in the night
    looking for someone to torment

    better watch out lest you be it's next victim
    don't try to fight it with your feelings

    anxiety is feeling resistant

    it will only mock at your feeble attempts to overpower
    fight with your mind

    anxiety hates it when you do that

    your mind has the power to oblivate anxiety
    but your feelings fuel its flame
    the strategy of anxiety has been effectively carried out

    you've been trapped inside it's lair
    not knowing how to get out

    you try again to fight with your feelings
    but anxiety fights back stronger

    you are left defeated on the floor
    the place where anxiety wants you

    you don't understand what it means to be
    battlling with the mind or battleing with emotions

    until you do
    your feelings will control you

    Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past could have been any different --Unknown
