I have been really good the last few months but the last few weeks I seem to have gone back down.
I am having panic attacks almost daily. I am stressed about EVERYTHING. I am close to tears all of the time!
I just feel like I can't be bothered and everything is such a struggle.

Have you spoken to your GP? Has anything changed recently that's brought it back on?
23/03/2013 at 13:55
Are you on any meds?
I finally managed to take control of my panic attacks when I learnt to just deal with a few things at a time. If I even begin to write a list out of all the jobs I've got to do it would push me over the edge again. Putting everything into different boxes mentally help massively

I am on 100mg Sertaline (sp). I have been for a while now.
I haven't seen my GP recently but I am due for a new prescription in a couple of weeks so I will go then.
Nothing has changed recently that I can think of. I had a breast cancer scare but I had the all clear after some tests. I just can't shake the panicky, sad feeling.

It doesn't need an obvious tirgger for me. It is usually something very small that pushes me over the edge. Big things I can deal with it. It might be because everything is fine at the moment that your brain is saying, right you have time to panic now lets get rid of all these excess emotions you have been bottling up.

A scare like thats not nothing, I've suffered with anxiety etc in the past and with me it was lots of little things. Look after yourself pz.

I know it's not nothing, I didn't mean that. I just meant that I am not worrying about it anymore.
I can't even say there are lots of little things. I really don't know. Already today I feeling really tense, anxious and panicky and I don't have anything to do today. H is on holiday for the next week so he is home, he is cooking today. Popped to the shop for milk, bread etc. All I have to do today is play with the girls and pop to the stables later. I have no reason to be feeling like this. It's horrible.
I feel so bloody useless and good-for-nothing.

Ive no experience but wanted to offer a hug. Sometimes life itself is very overwhelming but you're not useless and certainly not good for nothing either x
24/03/2013 at 12:02
PZ- you aren't useless or good for nothing. You must speak to you GP again if you are feeling like this and can't really see what has caused it. I've never been in your position so I can't offer advice really but we are all here if you just need to write down your feelings, have a moan/rant, anything at all.

Thank you Ladies. I have just had a chat with H and I am going to call GP tomorrow. x

Hey PZ, sorry to hear you are having a hard time but sharing with H and seeing the GP sounds like the best way forward, well done

did you ring the GP petal?
25/03/2013 at 19:40
to you, I hope you managed to see someone x

I did. I am going on Thursday.
Thank you for thinking of me. I feel better today, but my friend come over and we had a bloody good laugh. Like proper belly laughing. I haven't done that for so long. Also AF arrived so I am wondering if it may be just my hormones. (still broken in that department. Seeing the gynae regarding surgery in April.)
