Past 2 months

Hello I am new to the forum, this battle of panic attacks has been very dreading and am in constant fear of having one every single day. I have been on a few medications that have had horrid side effects. Which in turn has left me feeling depressed now. I have 5 kids and started a new job 3 months ago, have missed 5 days off and on due to this condition. Reading the bible and trying to meditate but this doom feeling is taking over. I want there to be light at the end of this tunnel. I want myself back. I need to function to take care of my children and my finances.

I understand how you're feeling, and I'm really very sorry you're going through this. I know it's hard. Have you tried counseling? I know medication can be helpful for so many people, but for others it doesn't work- I wish it worked for everyone. I wish I could help you more. I can tell you this, and this is just my own personal experience, prayer helps me, also talking it out really helps me. My sister is usually available for me to just vent to. I can say the most ridiculous things and she just lets me get it all out. Journaling can help too. Also, look into groundng techniques. I think that might be helpful. Again, I am really sorry you're going through all of this, I feel for you, and I know it's really really hard. You're doing a great job though, and even though I don't know you, I'm really proud of you for reaching out. That's a big step!

This means the world to me! Is there paticular scriptures that help? I was not raised in church. I am at the dr right now as I feel my soul is empty and I ask for the lord to fill me. Whats scares me is that I just might lose my job and I don't blame them because I haven't been there for 3 months but I have to take care of my children. I guess for most part we must fix ourselves before we can conquer the world. I am seeking all the help I can get. Please know I am sending massive love to you for helping me. God bless you!
