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.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? 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...
