Hi everyone. I was just wondering if it's normal to have this fear of having another panic attack that basicly controls your life?
I am only 19 years old and I am scared of basicly everything now, I'm scared to take showers cause I'm scared of having an attack and falling, so now I only takes baths, which still scares me but I have to stay clean lol. But like I said I'm only 19 and I'm too scared to go out and be with my friends, I'm scared to leave my house basically. I do not want to let this take over my life, but how I get control back of my life? How can I go out and just have fun without worrying about
getting another attack.
This fear has me so bad that I had to quit my first job because I kept scaring myself into having panic attacks.
I start taking Prozac tomorrow morning, and I'm even scared of that. I read the side effects and now I'm afraid its going to do more harm and not help at all.
If anyone has any words of encouragement or any advice it would really help me out.
