> So along with my depression, I suffer from anxiety. I am on dailyanti anxiety medication. I just wanted to share with all of you and
say that since I found Buddhism just the other week, and have been
meditating daily, I have not needed any anti anxiety meds. :) I am
so calm, relaxed, and at peace. I can not tell of a time when I was
like this before. My husband has noticed big changes in me. He was
worried at first when I started doing research on the net about
Buddhism, worried I was becoming manic ( I am manic/depressive) but
now he sees that I have found what I have been searching for, for
years now. And he does support me. He was actually looking up books
for me on Ebay last night. I will not stop taking meds that I am on.
I know I need those. But just to be able to not need anti anxiety
pills for me is just amazing. To not be going into those anxiety
fits, is so freeing. I am now taking refuge in Buddha, Dharma, and
Sangha. And wonderful things are happening in my mind, my heart and
in my life, b/c I see what a better person I can be and will
continue to grow to be.
