Sorry long story but here it goes.......
I was adopted and have always had abandonment issues, so at some points in my life I have felt anxiety, but I coped and just got on with things. First time I felt I needed medical help was when I had my first baby and my adopted mother died soon after she was born. I went on Prozac for six months and felt OK. Years later I had a huge row with my husband and the panic attacks started but I didn't know that that's what they were and thought I was having a heart attack, many trips to A&E I did have tachycardia and was given Propanalol, I take it when I need it, it stops the palpitations. In 2013 I got breast cancer then in 2014 after grueling treatment I found out my husband for 25 years was having an affair for the last seven years. I knew some thing wasn't right in the marriage but I never thought he would do that to me. So my anxiety has been horrendous after this was exposed. I was referred to a psychiatrist and she prescribed dizapram and sertraline but I'm too frightened to take it. Just want to shut the world out. Just can't seem to see any lift at the end of the tunnel. Be grateful for any advice. I am unsure whether the palpitations are all anxiety related because it's been going on for so long.?
