Hello Everyone It Is really hard for me to tell you what exactly is going on with me but bare with me.

It all started when i was 18 years i was living the best time in life. One stupid day i decided to tried Meth and let me tell you ever since that day my life has been a roller coaster. The next day after i did that i had an anxiety panic attack and passed out in college while doing cpr class. Worst feeling ever. I felt like if i was having a heart attack. Palpitation dizzy couldnt balance it was horrible. All my problems started then. I was taken to the ER they told me i had an anxiety attack. After that i never felt normal again. I am now 26 with 2 wonderful children one 11 and the other almost 2. Lots of years have passed and i was able to live and control my symptoms everyday with no drugs everyday i felt the anxiety but like i said learn how to control it at least i tought that. So almost a month ago i was almost sleeping when i felt like if my heart stop and i couldnt breathed. I got up panick and got a bad attack my family call an ambulance cause i did passed out. It was the worst feeling ever. I hate all the symptoms that come with it. They prescribed me xanax i am currently taking some. My point ever since like a month ago Everyday i feel light headed dizzy palpitations my vision blurry. I cant even go outside cause i feel like im going to passed out. Ive been stuck in my room not knowing what to do. The medication sometimes it dosent work and im tired of feeling like i cant function no more. I fear when i am alone with my child that someting might happend to me and what is my baby going to do. The symptoms keep getting worse And the first available app with a dr is until April 26. What am i supposed to do all that time i feel like giving up in life i cant take this anymore if anyone have any suggestions please let me know as i feel like im dying slowly sometimes i think its something more than anxiety please help

    Hey there, you need to do what makes you comfortable. Spend time with your family, friends, and children. You cant worry about what could happen, that is out of your control, but you have anxiety, and you can beat this.

    If you need any help, post on this forum or feel free to send me a PM.

    All the best! smile

    Hi Joanna, anxiety is a terrible affliction, it's symptoms are numerous and differs, both mental and physical. Certain drugs can trigger an underlying tendency we may have towards anxiety/panic attacks. I've dealt with it for years and usually used the prescribed medication, but sometimes after a period of stress they don't cut it. Recently my Mom passed away and that brought on an increase in my symptoms almost keeping me home bound.

    There are some books on the subject that five good insight into the causes and how to deal with the symptoms, I've just recently started reading them.

    if you look on YouTube under anxiety I'm sure you'll come across some helpful information. Or even google, check out the different methods of coping that are suggested and see what works for you. It will pass, I know it's very scared and seems overwhelming, but it will pass. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

      Yes I totally understand, when it keeps you house bound and from doing what you want it's taking over your life. I tried to post a method I've been looking at but it was moderated. Oh well, if you search you'll find something with suggestions.

    Have you had a full exam with a cardiologist? I read you went to the hospital but have you followed up with a cardio doctor.,if not maybe a really good idea. Even it is a panic attack still have a soecialist give you their opinion.xanax as a ince in a while emergency calm down is great but if you use it daily its is extremly addicting and gets tolerated quickly. Not for everyday use at all. They have meds designed for daily use but again a cardiologist would need to do a full exam and they can help you.
