Have any of you hard- working carers had panic attacks? I am assuming that is what they are. I feel violently sick and feel as if I am going to faint. ( Usually, it is just the sickness bit.) I had a really bad one a couple of weeks ago, when several things happened, (nothing to do with my husband's illness) , which put more pressure on me and my body reacted badly to it. I managed to deal with it, sitting down, deep breaths etc. but it is scary and puts me out of action for a short while. Has anyone experienced these? Has anyone any advice for when this happens?
