Hi, Im a 35 yr old female and I started having severe anxiety attacks when I was 23. I got on meds and worked with a therapist and was able to wean off the meds and learned how to control it until a few months ago when it came back with a vengeance!! It has gotten so bad now to the point that I don't drive anywhere and Im absolutely terrified of being home alone!! I have two little girls who are on summer break and I feel like such a horrible mom because I am unable to even take them anywhere to do fun things. Even on the wkends when my husband is home, I still dont ever want to go anywhere for fear that I will have an anxiety attack while away from home. Its not just the attacks, I have anxiety all day long. I am on the verge of an attack every second of everyday and it sucks!! My doctor prescribed me Seroquil a few wks ago but I stupidly googled it, read the reviews and am now too scared to even take it because Im scared it will make me feel weird either when I take it or the next day, which will only give me an anxiety attack. I just feel completely lost and hopeless and just dont know how to fix it. I just want to be and feel normal! I want to wake up, get dressed and take my girls to do stuff, or even just go to the groecry store or gas station without it being a huge deal or causing me to have an attack. Anxiety truly is a horrible curse and Ive never loathed anything more in my entire life!!
