Hi, I am a 52 year old mother of 5. I have had panic attacks and anxiety attacks for the past 3 years. Yes, everyone thinks that it's nothing, but my mom. I have a lot of stress in my life and I am one of those who pretty much keep it to myself. Then when it builds up, I get those feeling of uselessness and unwanted. I just feel an overwhelming feeling of dread. I am going out on a limb joining this support, because I am tired of feeling this way and people telling me is really nothing.
