Hi everyone, I just joined this community along with the panic attack community. I was diagnosed with panic disorder in early May and I am doing my best to figure out how to deal with all of this. I tried paxil and wellbutrin, I hated the side effects so much I quit taking them. I think they made my anxiety worse, or I was too impatient to stick it out. I want to believe that over time I will just get better. I do take .25 mg of xanax now when I feel pretty anxious. April was a really hard month for me, I became pretty much housebound, so I have gotten better, but it is always on my mind. I have a 21 yr old son and a 15 yr old son and I hate that they worry about me all the time, that makes it tough. My husband is really supportive, but unless you've been there it is impossible to understand, and I know that all of you do. I wish you all the best and great hope for the future, I do believe things will be better. I will enjoy being able to talk to you!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
