Okay - tonight will be night 35! So far so good - no misses! I am under a lot of stress right now - I work at Nortel and the pressure is on! I am feeling tightness in my chest and even when I am not nervous about something - I am on edge. I am becoming more aware of my anxiety and how in the past - it would manifest in anger or eating (although I never gained weight or was bulimic, anorexic - just went after the carbs!). I read Erics post about Serotonin and carbs with interest. I produce high levels of serotonin so the Remeron I take - slows that - still want to eat pasta, bread etc. otherwise I feel really anxious. The only time in my life that craving stopped was when I was taking L- Glutamine - but that's another whole story.Anyway - since I am taking the Remeron -that controls my IBS D - so it is hard for me to see 'immediately tangible' benefits for the tapes but as I said before I am sure that they are also helping - if nothing else to raise the awareness about the anxiety - rather than to just laugh it off and saw I have lots of nervous energy as I did in the past!
