My Anxiety Story

Posted , 5 users are following.

My Panic attacks started  back in the 80s after i put some ear drops in my ears it was like my whole world ended i was so dizzy i went in to a sweat and seen black in front of me i was rushed to Hospital where they told me there was nothing wrong . than the attacks started more and more i was so scared i couldn't do any thing i felt weak and thought i would die i was 54 kilos i went to 40 kilos i couldn't eat i couldn't stand up as the room would spin. So i went to the dr and he gave me Inderal 10 mg once a day i started to get a bit better but still had bad anxiety. I then could at least sit on a chair, but i was still scared i could not be near my family or any one as i would go in to panic and i thought i can not go to the drs or hospital as i was to panic so i said to my self well i will either live or die. So the panic went on and on i just wanted to never wake up and than i started to listen to some tapes about panic attacks so i was doing self help by slowing down my breathing and stopping all bad thoughts by  thinking only good thoughts and it started to work after months  with alot of help from my family just being there for me. I still get panic and i can not go out any where and i get realy bad if any one came to my house i get very scared of people its hard as my daughter suffers as well and it makes me feel guilty but i can not change whats been happening so i hope this will kind of help other people because i really know what other people are going through.

    Do you understand why this happened ? was someone putting the drops in your ears for you
