Hey everyone first of all thank you for responding to my post you don't know how much comfort it gives me. I woke up shaking again this morning and of course my thoughts went right too oh great today is going to be a bad day. I've only been up a little while and i'm already feeling bad and starting to feel hopeless. I guess we all go through wanting to runaway and hide somewhere. I'm so tired of fighting this anxiety and panic i'm exhausted i can't stand how I feel inside it's driving me crazy.Sometimes I feel like i'm gonna lose my mind because of it. I take the meds but I still have the anxiety. I feel so alone today.

I know you are just starting a new med. Please know that they do take 4-6 weeks to kick in sometimes. Has your doctor given you any fast acting meds such as Xanax or Valium to help in the meantime? That might be something to talk to your doctor about while waiting for the Seroquel to kick in. Good luck!

Good advice from Nanners.

April,

It is great to post in two forum just continue on your same thread in each forum if it is still relevant to your original topic.  No fouls, I was just gently suggesting this to you so members will go to your thread that started your conversation to see how your doing.  :-)

If you have a brand new problem or have not posted in awhile then a new thread is certainly in order.  You have nothing to apologize for my new friend.  :)

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

April, don't fight the anxiety/panic. The key word is to "float". Accept how you're feeling. Let your body do its thing during the attacks. Your body is only doing what is normal when you are anxious. When you accept it and are no longer afraid, the symptoms will subside.

Remember you're not alone! You have many friends on here that care about you and know how you feel. Start fresh tomorrow morning, think positively.
