Hi, I'm new to this, and it already looks like it'll be a great resource. I have been in a really bad place the past couple of months with my anxiety/panic attacks. My anxiety has been up and down since my childhood, but it's been especially bad again since around March. I'm in a new place for college though, and it has taken me forever to find the time and place to set up an appt. Hardly anywhere accepts my insurance and once I was out of school and had some time to find someplace that did, their next available appt wasn't for months. I've been getting so many panic attacks, including heart palpitations and trouble breathing. My heart scares me so much, i have issues even getting my pulse taken. My therapist suggested that I schedule an EKG but when I arrived at the appt my doctor immediately wrote it off as anxiety when I described my symptoms and said the test wouldn't be necessary. I know it's very unlikely that I do have heart problems since I'm only 19, but I feel like my body is falling apart even so. I feel so alone too, since I'm in a college town far away from any family or my old friends. I've made wonderful new friends up here, but I don't want to be a burden on them. I feel so stuck right now, and everything just feels so useless.
