Hi, I'm new to the group and I'm not really sure how to begin really. I've not joined any other groups so thought I would find one, this one seems really friendly from the posts I've been reading and when I've felt an anxiety attack coming on, I've read some comments and started to feel a bit better. I've not really found anyone in the same situation as me so although it's horrible for you guys, it's nice to know there are other people out there that have the same thoughts/feelings.
I guess ill start at the beginning I started having panic attacks about 7 years ago and they sort of went under the radar for a few years after some counselling, (I may have been able to control them better) but last year they have reappeared and I'm struggling to control them. I feel I'm going mad with it because although some of my family/friends are trying to support me, they don't fully understand what it's like to have these thoughts and feelings constantly and not being able to shut off from it. Because at the end of the day they can walk off or go to work and carry on.
Sorry I've gone on a bit there.
