I started having panic attacks after the death of my daughter in 2008. They were pretty well controlled and wasn't causing any physical symptoms just the worry that something bad would happen.

Or I fear I will start them they'll continue to work and then my dr will take them away and I will withdrawl so I only take them when I get the "I'm going to die feeling." I also now have a severe phobia over something being wrong with my heart. What do any of you guys do to help calm your mind.

I always struggle during the evening I just want to go to bed, really early like about 7pm. I am highly nervous, on edge, try to distract myself but nothing works.
