Re: Panic attacks post stroke

I feel so blessed to have found such comfort in the responses I have received. In a strange way, it is comforting to know that others have shared or are sharing my experience. I know I need to take the time to heal and physically, I'm almost completely recovered. I no longer have the pain in my left shoulder radiating down my left side to the bottom of my left foot. I no longer flop my left foot when I walk, but control the step. I'm walking more and enjoying it now that I have my orthodics in my shoes. My dizzy spells are a lot less, now that I control my movements, instead of just getting up or turning quickly and walking. I still have daily dizzy spells that just hit me out of the blue but they don't last as long.
My biggest issue right now is the panic attacks and getting them under control. I know I can do it, I'm a fighter/survivor and I have the support of my new found friends.
