Hello my name is Kirstie I'm 27 years old..I have always suffered with anxiety but there will be years when I'm so happy then there will be times in life I will go through this whole fear..I was abused by my parents for 17 years till I ran away from home I was bullied at school for 10 years when I left home I was badly bullied in hostels then I met my partner had 5 children married and all I've had is grief off his ex..and his child saying lies about me..now for past 2 months I've just let myself go and I'm in the world of my own..I suffer panic attacks that's come out the blue doctor gave me citropram for start they were making my panic attacks worse then I was on sertraline they made my anxiety worse then they end up giving me diazepam too scared to take them now due to being so tired and having 5 small children I don't have any family to support me but recently I have just bin waking up in morning with tension headache dizziness trying to catch a breathe crying all the time over stupid things..I'm too scared to leave the house I'm feeling so lazy and tired..my head feels like it's gonna explode also when I'm sitting down my head feels dizzy and feel pressure like someone's takings urging me brain around in my head..I'm having to constant rock like a baby all the time just to feel better but I can't..I'm also thinking I'm going to die all the time and then it puts me in a panicky mood also I'm having chronic chest pain that leads to my chest feeling so heavy so I'm trying to catch breathe I'm also suffering asthma is anyone else dealing with these symptoms I really feel for people who goes through this as its a very horrible situation and worse thing is my partner never understands how I'm feeling at all..

    Wow u r not alone I feel the same way and I also suffer from depression and anxiety attacks. I hope one day your partner understand what u r going through. One thing I know is that you have to have support around so u could get through this. U know there is no cure for this I hope you feel better soon

    You're never alone, seek help from your GP. Ask to have a psychiatrist give you a diagnosis and you will be properly medicated.

    As long as this site is running, you'll never be alone. Ask your partner to do more reading into anxiety and panic attacks and hopefully then they understand.

    Good luck
