Hello all,

This is my first blog ever, so i guess i'll get right to it. I have been an anxiety sufferer for 8 long eventful years. I am 26 years old and have been with my wife for 6 years. Together we have a 5 year old daughter, and one on the way. Anyway, I remember my first anxiety attack when i was 18. I thought I was having a heart attack. I was flooded with dread and just didnt know what was going on. The years to follow that event, my life was never to be the same. I was having at least 10 to 20 attacks through out the day, almost everyday. I constantly feel like I'm in a dream like state, and it's hard to concentrate sometimes. I'm always waiting for the next attack to sneak up behind me. It's always tapping on my shoulder, hovering over me. I notice everything about my body. Maybe a bit of a hypocondriac, Ive been to the doctor, emergency room, and other nerve specialists. Everyone says there is nothing wrong, and dont understand what im going through. Ive been treated like sh*t and sent away many times. I feel like im going to die at any moment. And i could deal with the panic attacks if i could just get some relief from the way i feel everyday. Always tired, dreaming but caught in a nightmare, heart palputating, getting dizzy and lightheaded, and the one thing i can think about is how im going to raise my family when i have lost touch with the real world. I am miles away in my own hell. But, not all days are bad. Every once in a while, i will have a good day. Sorry if i bored anyone, and i hope someone can give me any advice. Any at all. Thank you if you made it this far in my first ever blog.

    Hello and welcome to the site 🙂
    First off, you\'re not alone with your panic attacks. I personally do not have attacks to the extent as yours, but I do have them, like nearly everyone else on this site, and we understand perfectly. Blogs tend to be a pretty nice place just to vent, but also to find answers, opinions, and words of advice. You don\'t need to worry about boring anyone here, too…because we seriously do get the problem, since we have it ourselves. Don\'t be afraid to be yourself, for since i\'ve been here everyone has been exceptionally kind to me. I hope that you\'ll get some help on here…And that some solid rest will come, rather than a nightmare all the time.

    Welcome to our little anxious family here. We are happy to have you here! 1st of all know, most of us have quite similar stories to yours. There are some on medications (like me) and some who choose to treat their anxiety/panic with natural methods or none at all. So I guess what my question is, how are you treating your anxiety/panic? Are you on meds or what seems to work for you? Hope the rest of your day goes well, God Bless!
