I have always had a nervous and paranoid disposition. In October of 2005, my dad died. Me and my husband seperated less than a week later. I got pregnant in February of 2006, Divorced in April of 2006, had a baby in October of 2006, and remarried in December of 2006. Before this last pregnancy, I was a normal person for the most part. I would go drink with friends, I always had a house full of friends or family, I went to alot of bbqs and social events. Ever since I got pregnant with my last child, I have been a completely different person. My panick attacks have become the main focus in my life.. other than my kids of course. I have a huge fear of throwing up, so when I have a panick attack and my stomach gets funny, I won't eat. Then, I'm so scared of it coming back, that I won't eat for days at a time sometimes. I weigh 40 pounds less than I did in February of last year, and I know i'm messing myself up. How do I overcome my fears? I feel like i'm in a daze all the time now and no matter if I want the food or not, I can't bring myself to eat it without fear of feeling bad afterwards. I know it's all in my head, but what can I do to get my life back? I am now afraid of going to events, I can't eat if I'm around people, I drive differently, the thought of going to a party scares the heck out of me now. Please give me some advice and let me know if I'm crazy and what I can do to help myself. Thank you.
