Hi all,


As I am on my high not too high dose of med, currently, things are very well at the moment, I have decided to leave my wristbands off, and see how I go managing for up to during the evening. If at anytime, from during until the late evening, I'll feel mild or severely anxious, I'll put the bands on again. Also, I have come to realise, that, I can't become too - now I'm not sure what is the word to use) dependant on the bands as well, so I felt to have a break from them.


My paranoia levels are fine at the moment. I have just realised, that I am very tired for today, busier with housework, and out shopping, although I was only out the once, early morning. No, mistake I was out twice.


I shall in a few moments press on with my cross stitching work, and listening to music combined.

HI all,

At this time, my anxieties are calm and fine, this is without the travel sickness bands on, which i discovered calm down the anxieties nerve levels anyway, not just for travel puposes. I am relaxed whilst cross stitching and listening to music combined. Now I have to get to a completely different location and different voluntary stint on Tuesday, if I'll happen to feel anxious on Sunday, Saturday at the earliest, then, I'll put them on again.

HI all,

I'm fine, very well not anxious at all, and this is without wearing the travel sickness bands, and even though I dropped back my dose slightly by 5ml. No, I'm not on 5ml, I mean 20ml down from 25ml. of medication.


I don't have any paranoia feelings up at the moment, either. I thought i would trial you see, without the bands on, and see how I get on, this weekend, mind you, Father and I are possibly going to casino in East London tomorrow, so i might just in case, later on during the evening, put the bands on. As I say, I know I can't come to dependant on them. Otherwise, they won't work, say for on holiday trips. Anyway, I don't feel I will have to wear them, during this evening.

Hi all,


I'm very well, no anxeities up this evening, during the evening this is, no wristbands on, and I have reduced my dose slightly by 5ml from 25 down to 20ml. I am a mild mental health problematic case, me. I only always have mild tendancies of anxiety, or paranoia, nothing too severe at all times, if that makes sense.


Not sure about the weather - bitterly cold wet sort of weather for tomorrow, am looking very much forward to getting to casino, with Father. Well, i felt like having a go, with slot machines, before I'm away on holiday, and even though there will be slots, on the ship.


I go off in a couple of weeks, on holiday.

Oh that's a point, I'm not even feelign anxious in terms of travel, holiday.

Natalie.

Hi all,


I am going to wear my bands today. I can easily feel anxious about long distance bus travel, ie, North West of London, to get to, so by wearing them today, I should feel very much easier, and, to keep them on for tomorrow.

Hi all,

I'm very well non anxieties wise today. I am not even anxious regarding and though really looking forward for my parents and mine holiday coming up. So I feel, these travel sickness bands, in which I discovered a trick for anxiety and to a degree paranoia-are doing a marvellous job, at keeping these two ailments down and at bay. At the moment, I don't feel even pressurised unlike I normally do, in terms of hassle and bussle of airports. And, in a matter of weeks, I shall be going on holiday with my parents, and really really looking forward to being on ship for a week, and, seeing cousinship family who reside in a part of the US. Oops, shoudl I have hinted, I'll apologise for that. Anyway, no anxieties, nor paranoia at the moment this week.


Natalie.

Hi all,

Not well with a different set of my conditions, and this is physical general health, not mental health, I had completely forgotten to put my bands on, to keep anxeities and to a degree paranoia levels at bay - you know what, I have been absolutely fine, without the bands on for today. So I'll leave them off, for the remainder of the week, and I'll see how I'll get on without the bands on. I am with the potentially bad weather trying to rearrange volunteering for next week on Tuesday, and it is hoped Tuesday will be a marginall milder and better weather day.



No acute problems of anxieites or paranoaia to think of.

Hi all,


Should it so happen, I haven't hadmy travel wrist bands on all day, and not also for during the evening, and my anxieties and paranoia levels are very much well behaved.

Hi all,

I'm fine, very well. Anxieties wise, no problems to report at all. Admittedly, I haven't got the bands on today, I have been a bit forgetful in wearing them for this afternoon, I had them on this morning though. Just keeping with medication, and at a certain required level of dose, and I'm ok, no anxieties up at all, plus what's more important also, I'm sleeping very well overnighters. Which means, I can then mentally and generally function ok in the daytime.
