Hi Melanie,

Welcome to the group. I know exactly what you are going through. I was in an abusive relationship, with a Cop, 8 years ago. After getting out of that relationship, I moved closer to home and away from him. However, it didn't help, he tracked me down and raped me. I truly feel that I am alive today because my grandma came for a surprise visit while he had me trapped in my house. He is now serving 20 years in prison for the rape and another 10 for his involvement in a drug exchange that was happening over the Canadian border. He is not serving them concurrently so I know I am free from him for at least another 25 years. The most time he will serve is 70 years. All of this along with the debilitating effects of my Lupus have caused many panic attacks.

For me the first step was to go to a therapist and get some help with medications and talk therapy. I also found things that help me get the panic/anxiety out of my mind. My hubby knows when I'm having a bad day because we have a dinner that requires meat pounding. I also color, play with clay (play dough), write letters to God, take a warm bath, or go for a walk. I was told I had to find what works for me and sometimes none of these things work and thats where the as needed medication comes in (currently Ativan).

Keep Love in your heart and God in your soul.

Take Care!

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry to hear about those things. My heart truly goes out to you. I've been through some pretty crazy things myself, but never robbed like that. I also have anxiety attacks. Though lately I havent had them like I used to. But if there has been one thing that absolutely helped me the most is has been prayer. I know that sounds cliche but its true! But some times its hard to pray to God when so many blame him for their problems and barely know him. So I love to read the book of Psalms whenever I'm feeling down. King David was inspired by God to write many of the songs in that book. David went through alot of terrible things himself, even having to run for his life for a long time from a vicious person bent on killing him!

So when i read his heartfelt words they really touch my heart. He was a real man with real problems just like our own! One of my favorite Psalms is Psalm 37. When ever I feel like things are bad and it just seems hopeless i read that Psalm and it reminds me that someone is watching and he DOES care! And one day terrible things like what you went through won't happen to anyone any more.

I hope this has helped a little. emoticon emoticon
