  • I've suffered from anxiety disorders since I was 14, but for me they've morphed in and out of clarified disorders over that time, and I developed Panic Disorder sometime during mid 2013. I've gone through my own littany of health-monitoring hardware but never recorded the findings nearly as complete as you've shown above. Thanks for the awesome article and ideas, as well as shedding light on a seriously under-discussed and misunderstood health topic. The more exposure and understanding anxiety disorders get, the better it gets for both the people who suffer for them and the people who interact with those who suffer.

    P.S. To Nick and anyone suffering anxiety, in addition to CBT, you really should check out daily mindfulness meditation. I've played the on-off SSRI game for the better part of two decades now, and while they have been instrumental in helping me achieve and maintain some normalcy in my life, nothing has been as effective, encompassing, or devoid of side effects as daily 10 to 20 minutes of mindfulness meditation. I highly recommend giving it a shot. Worst case scenario is you've wasted a bit of time, just be aware that mindfulness is something that requires time to build up and make changes, it's not an "incidental" fix (although it can be used in a CBT-like manner for acute panic).

No public wish lists :(
