Panic Attacks...still


Photo: Flickr

The panic attacks are increasing now that Alfred is not here.

I am wondering if his leaving is triggering the attacks?

But I still have them even when he is here with me.

I thought it was getting better, but this is a definite setback.

The good news is I have a doctor appointment Thursday morning.

Finally, I will be able to get help and relief...

Tracy, I sent you an e-mail quite awhile back sharing my story with you. I am so happy to hear that you are going for help! Remember, the medicine takes time to work (mine was 4-6 months, from some help to total freedom!). In the meantime, my doctor prescribed Ativan which helped whenever I felt one coming on. It does not prevent the attacks, however. I hope that you will persevere and find the doctor/medicine that helps you. Unfortunately, they do not seem to go away on their own according to all that I have read. Please do let me know if I can help you at all. Bonnie

May I please just add that panic attacks can go away on their own - or at least with the right kind of psychological understanding you can be free of them, providing they are not being triggered by a physical cause.

Best of luck with the doctor :-) I will be thinking of you.

Hi Tracy..
I was visiting blogs and came across yours. sorry to hear about your panic attacks. What brought mine on was when I started Chemo and other treatments I was on. It was one of the side affects. and somehow it affected me really bad, even after chemo it stil lingered so I take xanax when ever I need it and it stops the panic feeling. I only take it as needed. I pray that your Doctor will be able to get you on the right meds, you will feel a difference.. Take care

Hi Tracy~
I just discovered your blog & haven't read too far yet, but wanted to comment here...
I don't know your history or anything or if you need medication....
So I honor all those ways...
And I offer one of my own...
Last summer when I was going thru this I heard my Guides say "Don't be so quick to jump or exit the anxiety. Ask it questions. Write. Dive a little deeper. It comes bearing gifts.
Tracy what I have learned is that in our society we are taught to stuff, to move on, to get over 'it', or any number of other things.
When I stop..& feel what it is that I am feeling, even when I am kicking & screaming inside & don't want to do this..& sit w/it awhile as I would a dear friend..& then ask that place inside questions...
I ALWAYS learn something new.
AND I come out on the other side w/ a deeper wisdom....

Oh Tracy, I am praying that you will be filled with peace through and through for all your days... Maybe you are on the verge of being set free once and for all from these--which is exciting to think about! All things are possible with God.... Blessings, Debra
