    its not silly its how you are feeling and you have come here for help and suport which you will always get,it sounds like you are having Panic attacks ,my sister used to think she was going to die every day and struggled holding a job ,Numerous appointments with the doctor never helped her until it became unbearable to go out and she read a article someone had same for 20 years which was a turning point and from home (internet ) she collected lots of information on medication on self help ,she now has a University degree and a good job so you can do something to change how you feel dont think you have to feel the way you do and we are here for suport smile

    Please dont feel daft for asking for help it feels real that you are going to die but the fact is no one has ever died with a panic attack ,my sister thought she was going to die when she was making a burger one day she was so convinced ,but that how you brain can project them thoughts ,when you master the art of how to stop them then they seem silly but for now they are a reality and you have 2 beautiful children who need there mum smile

    I know how you are feeling as i have suicidal thoughts every day at the moment so i come on here to keep my mind posative and help others and my sister constantly tells me think happy remember happy moment focus on that she makes me have a nap and listen to meditation Paul Mkenna bless her lol but to be honest it is helping and there is a light at the end of the tunel. i know it is different from thinking you are going to die in a panic attack but on the same hand its the same treatment to overcome if that makes sense Maggie

    maggie, no need to feel silly. Anxiety attacks will make you feel like you are going to die, but it is just a feeling. If you have seen a medical Dr and you are fine and he does blood tests and he cannot find anything life threatening, then tell him you are afraid and cannot sleep at night and ask him for a referral to a therapist and get in to see one to see what the underlying cause is. Anxiety is helped by a therapist

    yes there must be a underlying cause ,i know what mine is so i avoid it at the moment as it triggers so i keep my mind busy i another direction so i would agree at this point to see a therapist and find out what is triggering it then you can adress the problem so it would be worth a visit to the doctor because these things take time you could be waiting a few months but until then we are here every day so dont worry you are not alone smile

    Maggie, I'm so sorry you're going throug this, and no need to feel silly. I'm sure you realise that you're not really going to die suddenly. I can see from your posts that you've had yourself checked out physically, which is a good idea.

    But have you had any other help? It sounds to me as if you would really benefit from CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy). This is a kind of therapy that helps you look at why all this is happening and then deal with it for yourself. You might need to take a mild anti-anxiety drug at first, but CBT will help you move away from chemical support.

    I don't know which country you're in, but if it's the UK I know CBT is available on the NHS, though waiting lists can be quite long. I really think it would be worth your while to go back to your GP and ask for a referral. Under British law you can insist that your GP refer you to a specialist, though many try to avoid this.

    Do you have a support system to take care of your kids, in the event anything did happen to you? I'm not saying anything is going to, but this is something most parents would want to set up anyway, in case of an accident for example. Do you have a partner, or parents who would be able to step in? Sometimes just knowing that everything is under control can help lift your anxiety.

    But do go back to your GP and ask about some kind of therapy, preferably CBT, for your kids' sake as well as your own.
