Folks, I am new to the group and need to ask for some support. I am 44 and recently had a massive heart attack. I feel lucky to be alive but I am also feeling kind of depressed and am now having periodic anxiety attacks with fear of having another heart attack and shortened life expectancy. One thing I have learned is how different a heart attack is from an anxiety attack. For those of us who have had anxiety attacks believing that you are having a heart attack, I can assure you that you will know if you are having a heart attack. It is a feeling like you have never felt before. Now that I have experience both, I am finding it difficult to control the anxiety I had kept under control for so many years. Is there anybody in this support group that has gone through what I am going through now?
