Anxiety for me. Comes and goes. Sometimes I wish I could live a few years over. Even at that I am not as prepared as I would like to believe. Shucks!

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member I am so glad you are seeing a counselor. Keep going as long as you need to. You have been through a lot it sounds like to me. In the meantime love your doggies. You can even talk to them when you are feeling down
It is amazing how good they can be at understanding your feelings.

Take things one day.at a time. Play nature music and be transported to a more serene and lovely surounding. And don't be hard on yourself. Love yourself. And let your dogs know you care about them. Examples of ways to just relax and breathe easy.
