Im 29 and have a son going to jr high next yr and a 1yr old. I have suffered from panic attacks and anxiety since I was 23. I was doing good but had a major set back (losing house, no job) that I started getting panic attacks again but this time x10. Im so depressed I don't even play with my kids anymore and I only look forward to going to bed at night. No one in my family understands me at all. My husband goes to work and I just lay on the couch staring off into space until the little one wakes up and I just start crying. I feel so bad for my kids because I hardly give them my attention any more. I'm like a zombie all day and it feels like I can't breath, my throat is so tight. Im terrified to drive because I'm afraid im going to faint in the car.... I'm a mess and I need help. I'm so sick of my life, every day it's the same depressing sh#&!View Thread
Thank you for responding to me. I felt like I was so alone and now I feel a glimmer of hope. I will do what ever I can to be a normal functioning person again. I don't want to be scared anymore.View Thread
