Hello everybody,1 week ago I thought my life was ending,what a difference this site has made to my life and I will tell you why.Last Monday was my first panic attack,in bed,in the early hours,in the dark,the" grim reaper" had come for me but I was not ready,I am a single Dad,my Son is in his room asleep.Oh how I so wanted to wake my Son for comfort,I was so scared and confused.I didn't die that night but I needed answers,medical answers or so I thought.The N.H.S. Nurse told me about this site and this site has saved my life and that is the truth.
Take heart all of you in the fact that we all suffer in our own unique way,I am afraid of my Bed and not ashamed to tell you.Let me tell you this,I will not be beaten by anxiety and neither should you.
Wrong,I am no stronger than you or more able to cope but I refuse to be beaten by my own mind,people on this site make me feel that I am not alone or going mad or different.People on this site have made me feel strong and positive and in only a week,my outlook is very different.
For years,I did not know what was wrong,I do now and am damned if this is going to ruin my life.
The second I start to feel anxious,I move,do something,talk to myself,whatever it takes.Keep changing your routine,change your mind,change your undies,just change!
Remember people,NON of us are mad and we own our brain,not the other way around.
I love my Son too much to allow this to beat me,we all have someone and if you don't,then come talk to me,take care.
