I had a traumatic experience with the court system in 2014 where I lost custody of my children. Now, whenever there is a court related issue I spiral down in flames immediately. Panic, horrible anxiety, trouble sleeping.... I wonder if anyone can relate? Any coping techniques? I feel this awful awful anxiety and don't understand where it keeps coming from or how to handle it. I do not want to self medicate with Xanax each time, but should I to keep the Cortisol down? UGH!
