This is completely new to me but I feel that at least getting my feelings out will help. About two weeks ago I suffered out of the clear blue sky a panic attack. Needless to say I barley slept for the next three nights and found myself at an emergency clinic on the weekend. There the NP visited with me for 10 minutes gave me a script for Prozac and sent me on my way. I followed up with my PCP the following Monday and he suggested that I hold off on taking it. Two days later there I was in his office again he prescribed me Ativan to help through the anxiety but all I'm doing is taking two a day and now he wants to see me sooner because he never intended for me to use it that much. I go to see a therapist for the first time this Friday and I'm glad. But I feel like with all these anxious feelings I'm never going to get through this. I have my son and my boyfriend for support but its a cure that I want..... Is this how this kind of thing starts for everyone?

Please help, I have been suffering with anxiety and been depressed, I was steady as I had a good support system. I was in a realationship for two years but yesterday out of nowhere she broke up with me and now my main support system is gone. I have nobody to talk to (not even just about being anxious and all that, but nobody to talk to and no interactions.) It hurts emotionally and physically...
My form of self harm is picking at my skin. My fingers and chest especially at the moment look absolutely atrocious. Really worried people are going to notice and say something, and half the time I dont even realise I'm doing it. My skin was looking so healthy, and now I'm back to square 1. I know relapses will happen, but feel so angry and disappointed in myself.
