Unhappy Before Medication

Hi
I have suffered from panic attacks since I was a teenager.....I'm now on medication for it Thank Goodness! ......Before being put on medication....I could not be alone! I felt if I were left alone something horrible would happen to me and I would not have anyone around to help me......I honestly almost cost my husband his job...cuz I had to call him , just to reassure myself I could get in touch with him......I use to look out the windows to make sure some neighbor was home...I know this seems crazy!!! Has anyone else felt this way?????
Still on the medication...every once in awhile I start to feel like I can't be alone, .....at least now it is only once in awhile..........I use to work myself up into a major panic attack at times........Horrible feeling as most of you who suffer well know!!!! Thanks.....

Re: Before Medication

to bbear
the fear of being alone is very common and often solved, believe it or not, by getting a dog!

even with a severe panic attack, you will never need anyones help and will always be able to cope on your own
