Well I have had a rough week. My son is doing better. The Halidol seems to be helping alot. But I have had one panic attack after another. I have applied for social security and am hoping it goes through soon. I am afraid to leave the house. I don't go anywhere cliff cant go with me. This is all of a sudden for me. It is crippling. How Do I get rid of it. It seems to be getting worse and not better. . If someone has a way to help this i would appreciate the help. Financially things are real tight. that doesn't help any. If you pray start with me.

  1. I'm so sorry you are having this problem. I have been off work since last June. I had a breakdown at work which turned out to be a panic attack so severe that I thought I was having a heart attack. I have been seeing my family doctor who referred me to a psychiatrist and of course was put on medication. The medication helped the depression but like you my panic continued to get worse. This is the only thing that works for me and I still have trouble at times but I thought I would share because it's a start. Start out by going outside the house just a little bit by yourself. Believe it or not by the time I did this I had to start by going on my front porch! That is how bad it had gotten! Then to the sidewalk. I would go sit in my backyard and try to do some deep breathing and make my self stay there for a while. We live across the road from the post office so I walked over there next (I ran back but hey I made it over there). The bad thing about panic attacks and the social anxiety is that you really don't understand it yourself and certainly not many others do either. I have a long way to go and somedays I can't make myself do any of the above but I'm still workin on it. I am praying that our disability starts soon as we have had no income since January but in the meantime I'm continuing to work on myself and every little bit helps. I hope this helps you, let me know please. God bless.
