My story
Hey (if anyone reads this)

I never experienced anxiety before my mum died (apart from job interviews), now I have panic attacks from just sitting on a bus, walking up the road or sitting in the car!
I now have irrational fears that make me even more panicky every day! My doctor gave me anti-anxiety pills (can't remember what they're called) but they didn't help me out at all! Although I did ask for pills that wouldn't make me drowsy, so who knows if that affects the strength of tablets!
I don't know what to do at all, it's like my family don't believe me, because I am so comfortable around them, they don't see me panicking, sweating, scared. I don't like taking new tablets, because of health problems I have it could cause me damage and make me ill, so I am very reluctant to try anything new.
So, alas, I am stuck in a rut, with no way out!

Re: My story
Ahh you're pretty much in the same boat as me.

Basically, everythings going against you getting better and recovering from the panic/anxiety attacks.

I'm going to post a thread, it helps to read these to understand that you're not alone and that there is always someone out there to help!
