Andy,
I pray with all my heart that your wife understands why she is suffering from panic attacks. When I was having them I had no idea what was happening or that anything was adding stress to my life. I will say to pray aloud with her and have her take a strong stand and build energy to say, "GO AWAY, in the name of Jesus I am strong and I will not allow this to take over me."

One of my friends said her doctor told her they would never go away and I told her to take a stand when it is coming on and be strong. She did come off her meds!!!

Be positive and faithful and I am sure she will gain her strength and dismiss these attacks.

♣ Have a happy St. Patrick's Day!♣ emoticon

Take special care of yourself too.

I hope you all have had a great last few days. Life at home has been chaotic as I have worked to keep up with things around the house and completing report cards. Fortunately, oh so fortunately, the doctor was able to find a prescription that is able to help my wife sleep and seems to be relieving some of her anxiety. I hope this is the beginning of the miracle we have been for.

Thank you so much for all your prayers. They mean so much to me and I know they must be making a difference as my wife is finally sleeping after many months without. .

ANDY, as I read this my thoughts went deeply into what your wife, you and your Family are experiencing. It has to be very hard to see your Wife going through torment. Prayers are powerful. We know our Heavenly Father hears our prayers and He gives us comfort. It is very powerful too, to ask our Blessed Mother for her to intercede for us. Your dear Wife, you and your Family will be a very big part of my thoughts and prayers today.
I hope that very soon your wife will be feeling at peace in her body & spirit.
May God's Peace & Many Gracious Blessings be with you Always, Janis emoticon

Thanks everyone for all your kind thoughts, well wishes but most of all prayers.it means so much to read your words and know you are out there.

I know this is going to be a long trip for my family but am hoping that tomorrow's doctors visit brings some peace to my wife, as well the family.

CJ, thanks for the suggestion. I may try that route. My DW came to Mass with my daughters and I on Sunday but was so anxious. After Mass she kept asking why I hadn't been bringing her and had a hard time accepting that she had been staying away. It was difficult to see that she could not stay in the pew and when she did was wrenching her fingers and trying to keep herself calm. I was so worried about her I barely remember anything else that happened. Hmmm, I forgot to post in the Homily thread, but like I said, I don't even remember.

Oh, Andy, I am so sorry that your wife, and by extension you and the rest of your family, are dealing with this right now. Praying that God will grant her health and peace, and that He will guide all of you.

This may sound an odd question, but I know it helped my dh when he was ill in hospital, but is she able to venture out to see a priest to have her Confession heard, or to receive the Sacrament of the Sick (or both)?

When my dh was in the hospital, he was very ill, but his life was not threatened once they began treatment. Although no one said anything to my husband about dying or anything, he somehow believed that he was at death's door, and that there was nothing to be done. His physical condition was stable at that time, but was not improving as it should. As I waited for a procedure to be over one day, it suddenly occurred to me that we were at a Catholic hospital, and I should ask for a priest to visit him. One came asap and we talked for a while. He told me that he could not offer Sacraments that Bryan didn't want (obviously), but that he would do what ever he could if Bryan wished.

As soon as B. saw him, he started crying and said "whatever you can do, Father." Father smiled grimly and said, "That was pretty clear to me!" and proceeded to celebrate the Sacrament of the Sick.

Bryan immediately felt better emotionally, and the next day, his physical health improved drastically. I am convinced that the devil was messing with my husband and telling him all sorts of lies.

Perhaps he is lying to your wife as well!

Andy, I am praying for your wife right now, and I will put her on my prayer list.

Dear God, please wrap Andy's wife in a blanket of Your love, that she may feel protected and loved by You. Please send your healing angels to be with her, to calm her spirit and lift her depression. Fill her with peace and confidence, take away all fear and anxiety, and let her find deep happiness in You and in her role as spouse and mother. Thank you, Lord; we trust you and rest in your promises to hear our prayers. Amen.

Hey everyone, right now my family is going through a very difficult time as my wife is suffering with severe panic attacks and despair, even this weekend kidney stones. This has been so hard on the family and if you have a moment to send a prayer our way, I would greatly appreciate it.

I have always been one of those people that rarely ask for help, but you know, right now, I don't know what else to do!
