Now that you are having the panic attacks in addition to just regular anxiety, you should probably address this with your counselor or pdoc.

Attention Re: dissapointed......

Hello,
Sometimes I open my big mouth, but it is for a reason.

Well I guess I'm disspointed in a few things I wish I found someone going thro exactly what I am I know a lot of people have bad anexity like me but the fears aren't the same like my anexity is bad its

It would be nice to have someone who experiences what we do, but I would say it is nearly impossible. Even if you had a twin which would give you the best chance, it is still a far shot. Describing how mental health affects you is going to be different than how I describe the problem. And, if you go to the same PDoc he might offer a third opinion or tell you that on a basic level you and I have the same problem.

You say you would rather not take meds. That is a decision you and your doc will need to make. Make sure you tell him you've abused pills before. There are many ways they can dispense the meds. So if the doc recommends medication, take it. He is the expert in the field. You are the expert on you. It is your responsibility to be as honest as possible with the Doc and communicate any fears and concerns.

Finally, I wouldn't say you will never experience going to the salon, the corner store. If I were a betting woman, I would bet that you are wrong and that you will experience life.

The first step as others and myself have said is to find a doctor who can assess all of you and come up with a plan of action.

Good luck, we are here if you want to chat.
