Re: I Have Been stuck Here since April of 2008

Your not alone in this, remember that. I have struggled off and on for 15 years, mainly while driving, even with medication. I do not have one sole piece of advise because there are many. I just know that my faith has to stay firm in the midst of all of this, and one day maybe I will tap my red glitter shoes, and find my way. I do know that their are successful stories out there for all of us, and we just have to know that we will be successful too. I will never give up. I wonder about Anxiety Disorders of America? The only problem is getting there! LOL! Well, anyway, vent here, I will try to be helpful
We are the ones in the drivers seat

And also, thanks for serving our country!

Thumbs up Re: I Have Been stuck Here since April of 2008

I appreciate your service in the military. My panic attacks are not frequent, but they are definately real and very unpleasant. I hope you get some relief. Hang in there, and best wishes. Jack

Re: I Have Been stuck Here since April of 2008

I feel your pain. I have, to my dismay, been inducted into the panic disorder family a couple of days ago. *sigh* Like a couple of you have said my faith is going to play a major role in this one because this has to be the hardest trial I have had in my life ever since my carbon monoxide incident (Yes, I had that too). God willing we can all get our lives back one day. <edit>

You mentioned hunting - it was a panic attack during a hunting trip that finally caused me to go to the doctor and get medication. I was in Illinois deer hunting with two of my buddies. We all live in South MS. I had an attack the first night we were there - stayed up most of the night. The next morning I couldn't sit still and hunt. All I could think about was getting back home. There were two other hunters (strangers) that were leaving at mid-day that lived about two hours from home, so I left my stand, caught a ride with them, and sent my buddies a text message to inform them I had gone. We were supposed to be there several days, and I know they thought I was nuts, but I just couldn't stay there another night.

I was on medication for a year, and now just take it rarely, as needed.

Again, I wish you all the best.

Jack
