I've been suffering with anxiety/panic attacks for a while - but they have only seemed to escalated these last 3months.
I don't know what has caused them but I think it might be (and apologies if I sound pathetic) to do with the fact that the relationship with my partner hasn't been going well. That and the fact that I had/have so much going on and I kept/keep it bottled up.
I have been to my GP and other professional services - counselling and physcaratrist to try and help me with how I'm feeling and they just seem to want to prescribe me tablets - fluoxetine and propananol, which personally I don't want to take because of the side effects and the fact I have a little boy.
Anyway I thought I was doing ok, knowing my symptoms and trying to realise that they won't kill me, even when it seems like I can't breathe.
Tonight though I woke up and this thought entered my head about jumping out my window, which is over 100ft.
I've never had such a thought and it has frightened me and now I'm so scared.
I fear my symptoms have now got worse and instead of just panic attacks they've escalated to depression and suicidal thoughts.
I'm not sure what to do! And I worry if I mention this to a professional my little boy will be taken and he's my world - partly the big reason why I never jumped.
