I have always been an anxious person,always worrying
my whole life. Finally I got a panic attack in 2003 and thought it was a heart attack never having experienced such physical sensations. I have been battling them ever since. Have tried some anti depressants but went off because I felt no emotion and was eating unmindfully while on them.I started getting heavy years ago after my children were born and have been on some form of diet for years. I keep failing and trying. I am starting to realize that if I dont get this anxiety under control,I wont get my weight under control either. I thought I was going crazy until I realized so many many people get these attacks. They make me fearful to leave the house somedays but I force myself.I take lorazapam in am and in pm prescibed Sept 1 after a huge panic attack. The catch 22 with me is I have some artery blockages that sometimes give me anginalike pain and when I get a panic on top it causes worse chest pain and more fear and more pain. Well I guess you get it. Glad there is a support group out there. This anxiety may be the cause of my obesity. It causes one to STUFF their emotions. thanks for listening.I'm starting to get it.
