Thanks AdamUK,

You know that link you posted-- I have been to that monestary in Mt. Tremper New York!

It was about 16 years ago-- I was working for the summer at the Omega Institute in nearby Rhinebeck New York.

That was when I first recovered from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)-- another type of anxiety disorder.

I was able to recover from that using meditation in combination with the 12 steps.

Unfortunately, about 7 years later, I developed Social Anxiety.

Thankfully, however, in the last 2 years I have used the 12 steps again in combination with meditation to reduce my Social Anxiety by about 80%.

And now I'm working on the rest...(would like to get rid of that too).
