Hi, I’m new here, and I have anxiety as well as a panic disorder.
i have been suffering alone for nearly 20 years. For me, my anxiety is ok, I can deal with it, however the panic! I feel helpless! No one understands as they can’t see it, telling me that I’m overreacting and been stupid! I’m nearly 40 and I hate panic!
so I’m hoping there is at least one perfect who suffers what I do, my symptoms usually are, sudden headache then tingling face and arms. Mind telling me I’m dying. Sweating clammy cold shaking fearing the worst.
as I’m writing this, I’m having number 3 for the day, I calm down then all of a sudden my brain says no way lady.. you need to keep freaking out!
Ive been on loxamine for the anxiety side of things for years and it’s great, but they keep telling me (doctor) that the panic is party of anxiety..... but for me I see it differently.
So so what I guess I’m asking is does anyone else suffer these sorts of attacks? I feel so alone, it even broke up my marriage as he couldn’t handle my attacks as he thought I was attention seeking!! Please help!!
ps I’m from New Zealand xx

Back story about me....I am 33 years old and been in several dead end relationships (One emotionally abusive, an alcoholic, a coke addict, and a few good guys who just weren't right) When I look back on my past I recognize this feeling I am having now in my current relationship but back then I felt I had reason to...I wasn't being teated right, I was being stonewalled, my significant others...
