Welcome to all the new people. I have suffered for many years with attacks....thank goodness they have been better lately and sometimes I can go weeks without having one...praise God It seems that mine have started becoming hormonal and that I notice having more around my period....does anyone else have this?
Maria, It took them years to diagnose me so I tell everyone about my anxiety. If I can help one person everyone else can call me crazy! LOL It is unfortunately so much of who I am I just go with it and let everyone decide if they can deal with me or not. Jill
Its so strange because I've noticed that people who suffer from these attacks share the same exact stories. There have been so many times when I'm driving and I get one and I have to call someone to talk me out of it. Those people are very limited though. I only call people that know I get them. Otherwise I feel embarassed. I think that people will think I'm crazy.
But you were able to get through it and we always do. Good for you!!!
Yes it does! I had a bad one today! I only had to drive on the main road for about 20 feet in and out of the bank but it hit me and made me so mad! Luckily I got ahold of a friend on my cell and he talked me home.
Hi Carma, You did good fighting it! I think we all wish we could get off the meds! It is especially frustrating when we have attacks when we are on them. I know how you feel but you got through it. Yea for you! And you get through the next one also-we always do!
Had a pretty bad anxiety attack tonight. These are always a set back for me because it is a constant reminder that I suffer from panic. good thing was I fought it and was able to enjoy myself. I just kept looking at my daughters face and said to myself be strong for her!! I just wish I could move on with my life without them!!

I'm so glad that I found this forum. I myself have been suffering from panic attacks for 17 years now. The medications that I have been on to help control my attacks have also made me gain a significant amount of weight. Which is why I am here. It helps knowing that we share a similar story whether it be weight or panic. Glad to be a part of the group!!
