Anxiety/panic attacks new member

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello, everyone I just joined the forum afet reading for the last few weeks. I've suffered anxiety and panic attacks for years. Six months ago my Mom passed away, she was my only relative left. Anyway I've been having a terrible increase in my condition symptoms since . To the point I'm getting afraid to leave the house. I'm 63yrs old and never thought it would get this bad, I'm overwhelmed at this point and not sure what to do. I'll see my doctor next week and see if he can adjust my meds or get me an apt. With a psychiatrist. This is the worst condition to live with.

      Thank you Lynne, I believe the stress of my Moms illness and passing made my condition worse. The last 3-4months have been bad. I've been reading the forum and it does give me hope and comfort that I'm not alone. I felt I was the only one until I found this.

      Thank you Michaelall35712. I've gotten several e books on it from Amazon and I downloaded a couple of apps. The one you suggested above Mindfulness. But it does get overwhelming putting it into practice.

      basically facing the fear and allowing it to pass through. 

      This is a great site, so many helpful people working together and supporting each other.

      thank you all
