I have over come a lot of things and recently I have been pleged with panic attacks. My Dr. seems to think that I need to talk to people about hese such problems I have a hard time doing so becuase I have always been made to question my self worth. My thoughts are getting harder and harder to go through. I just need help from some body.

For me it has become easier when I remember to start out saying "I feel sad or whatever." If I pay attention to what is going on and then decide how I feel about it, I can begin to realize things like I'm upset etc. I still don't always remember to say I am feeling upset so it takes some practice. I am learning to talk more with people on these threads which is a great help.

Yeah I am upset and mad at a lot of things going on in my life. I have lost a few people that meant the world to me so I often feel like it is my fault. I have not been one with finding peace in God but recently have found a way to not blame death on him. Just trying to not blame it on myself either. I have a hard time thinking of going face to face with someone totalk about the flaws I have in my head.

Yes, the same with me. I can write and express myself much better than I can actually talk with someone.

Hi K.,

Losing people you are close to through death can cause panic attacks... whether you are able to talke to people or not, it happens.

Can you tell us what has happened in your life - will that help?

KMarie,
I too was plagued with panic and anxiety attacks. From last October through this January, I would get them probably 4-5 times per week. I started getting anxious over my anxiety. I was a mess. I didn't want to be alone, I was obsessing about death, I felt I had lost my faith - I was scared! I too have lost people close to me - my mom, my grandmother, my ex's grandmother, my brother in law - in a relatively short period of time. I couldn't understand it. I couldn't figure out WHY. Especially with my brother in law. He just dropped dead. He was 33, had 2 kids, a new house, etc. I have grieved for my mom for the last 2 1/2 years. I kept asking WHY. I am a teacher. This school year, we have had 2 first graders (I teach first grade) die, unexpectedly. I couldn't rationalize it all. I couldn't figure out WHY. I didn't blame myself but I didn't understand it all. I was angry at God, I felt like I had lost my faith. I've struggled to get it back; talked alot with my dad, my brother, and my husband. But the anxiety persisted. Finally, what helped me was medication. It's a little shameful to admit that I couldn't help myself, but now I can because the medication helps to relieve the anxiety and stabilize my mood so that I can focus on my issues. I also am seeing a psychologist. So, if it helps - you aren't alone.
