Hey Joonie ... 80 years young. You got me by a few years but by golly you are hip enough to be on the internet, on this site and sharing your story. Sounds to me like there is a lot of life left ... don't you ever think otherwise. Modern medicine is amazing ... they have diagnosed you and have a treatment plan. Yes, every day IS a gift - that applies no matter what the age. I would say it is quite natural for you to feel anxiety and panic symptoms. Anyone would. I hope you have friends and acquaintances, some kind of activities that you can enjoy, maybe even a pet. It seems as if things are always worse when we are alone. You have found this site and that means that you are NOT alone. Post, share and learn. There are more things that you can share, I am sure. Be as well as you can be and know that you are not alone. Blessings to you.
