Panic Attacks


When I was pregnant with Kayla, I used to get panic attacks. I was pretty much house-bound for at least a year - only able to go out for my doctor appointments and to Mama's house. It was a miserable, scary time.

Out of the blue, the panic attacks have returned with a vengeance. I am fine until I need to leave the house and then I can feel it coming on. This is not good! I don't understand why they are happening now, but I pray the problem ends soon.

Oh Tracy, that is so horrible! You know I knew someone who found out his panic attacks were related to his thyroid. Have you had that checked? He also helped them by doing tai chi. For me, yoga helps me. I have terrible social anxiety sometimes.

I hope that you can figure out what's causing it so you can make them stop, I really do.

That's terrible! I hope whatever is causing it resolves itself soon. I have them on occasion but they are rare and usually only happen in bad traffic or during a really bad storm. Do you think this is related to your husband being away?

Tracy,

I am so sorry and I will pray for you. I hope this goes away soon. Take care.

Could be hormonal changes Tracy. I went through such as this with the onset of periomenopause. They were especially bad for me about sundown everyday. I'd literally have to sit on my hands and hold myself rigid, feeling much as though I could crawl out of my own skin. I too will pray that these soon pass, as did my own.

Oh, how frustrating. Limitations in any form help us grow but they also force us to recognize our limits and it is so frustrating.

I've been reading through your blog and am enjoying it.
