Hi, I live in Las Vegas and I have been battling anxiety for almost a year now. Idk where to even start. I guess from the begining, November 2013. It started at work, a job that I was so miserable at and it made me stress out so much. My boss was a horrible person, she would yell at anyone for any reason just because. I felt like no matter what I did it wasnt good enough. I dreadedgoing to work, when I was at work I counted down til I left, when I left work I dreaded going to work the next day. That's when the troubles breathing started, tingling fingers from yawing and trying to get oxygen because it felt like I wasn't getting any. At that time I had no idea what was wrong with me until a friend of mine told me it was anxiety because he also suffered from it. I'm a single mother of 3 kids, I'm 25 years old. My kids are my reason to live, they are my everything. But sometimes when it's so bad I have to go into the other room before I have an anxiety attack. I'm always on edge, if I get upset even over small things the anxiety pushes its way in. I feel hopeless. Im frustrated. I want to be spending time with my kids, go to the park with them, play with the them but I get out of breath so easily. I just started recenty going to the dr, they did blood work and didn't find anything. She gave me Klonopin* and its been three days but it hasnt done anything for me. My symptoms are Ii feel like there is a lump in my throat, feel like i cant get a breath in, my neck feels stiff, shaky, and weak.My fiance doesnt understand but he tries his best, he just cant relate. I've tried breathing exercises and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. I want my old life back. I'm hoping to be able to talk to others about this that can actually relate.
