I would first like to thank you all for pointing out caltrate to me. It is my first week of taking it and I had my first attack today and it wasn't bad(seemed like a normal attack but with solidness) Much improvement. Anyways, I have heard many people suggesting relaxation techniques. What are some people use? Are there any good books which offer a variety of techniques. Are there any that you use during "attacks." I feel that breathing real deep and slow and taking my mind off it will buy me a little time when an attack kicks in. Thanks for any advice and I hope you all feel wonderful to start this week. Tex

I'm glad you're having success on the Caltrate. I am too! I've had a few setbacks like the one you described but all in all I feel so much better! Keep it up.

There are lots of books and tapes on relaxation techniques, self-hypnosis, stress management or whatever term is currently in vogue! The tapes are great because you can just put them on, close your eyes, and truly relax. If you can't find them at a major bookstore in your area, try some of the small off-the-wall places that specialize in metaphysical studies. They generally are full of all kinds of awesome music or altered mind state tapes and self-help books. Even in a small town like Reno we have 2 such stores. Ask the sales clerk for help, they're usually pretty knowledgable because they're into that lifestyle! good luck!
