Panic attacks and anxiety can happen anytime in a person’s life.

I have had panic attacks and anxiety pretty much all of my life.  I remember in junior school, I was around 7 or 8, being in assembly with around 1,000 other children, and passing out.  I always had to sit on a chair at the end of my row.

I was on anxiety and depression medication in England during my first marriage.  I came off it, but it started up again once we came to America, and ran our restaurant.  My panic attacks were so bad that I could throw up, pass out, sweating, body shakes, and migraine headaches.  They could go on for days.

Over the years I have to learned the skills to deal with them, and my last one was 15 months ago.

Moving on, my husband is now getting them.  So today I have spent most of it at the doctor’s office with him, having several tests, and making an appointment for a councilor/therapist.  He has also started taking a second medication for it, and is very relaxed now.

He has another appointment with the doctor in 2 weeks times, and the therapist the week after.

If you need help, please seek it.  There isn’t a cure, but it can certainly be manageable.  I can tell you from personal experience.

  1. I shall send positive thoughts for Len. And thanks for sharing this about your past. Depression was my issue. I had therapy and found I could do well with observing the triggers and changing direction. I have not had a depressive episode for many years now. i may get “down” but not into that black hole!

  2. Love this! I always try to encourage fellow sufferers to get help! There is no shame in it. Our daughter almost died soon after birth in a freak circumstance. Only God could have brought her through almost unscathed. I just reblogged her story. At BloomsandBeautifuls.wordpress.com
It is a daily struggle for me to push fear out of the way and Trust in Gods plan.
