I have been suffering from panic attacks for 8 months. There were times when I would go a week or so without having any symptoms and times when I would have 1 or 2 attacks a day. On January 1st of this year, I had a horrible attack, I was so scared I ended up going to emerge. It took 4 Ativan for me to calm down, it was horrible. Ever since I have been having attacks every day. I have tried so many things to make this night mare stop and I don't know what to do anymore, I've become so depressed about my entire situation that I cry everyday. I can't help but ask the question over again and again in my head "why why why?" begging it to go away. When I am not having an attack I am very dizzy, nauseous, shaky, and I have a headache almost all the time. I also feel exhausted. I can't function normally. This is ruining my life. Last week I started to feel better so I stopped taking my Ativan, the next day I was in full blown withdrawals, they only lasted a few days and then i was good for about 3 days, then a few days ago it all started again worst than it was before. I can't even work out without feeling like I am going to pass out. I am so paranoid and always think something is wrong with me or that I am dying. I don't know how much longer I can live like this,
