Same happened to me, but problem is not panic it is anxiety. I don't get it, Like you for about 1 week I was waking up with no anxiety at all. Right now I am on Xanax and sometimes it doesn't seem to kick in. Yesterday, Monday, I decided I need a break from work, should have gone to work, felt worse staying home.
Could I be suffering from a mild case of depression? I don't know some mornings I feel so low.. I am seeing the therapist today and see what she thinks. I am sorry to hear about your dog, it is very hard to comes to grips with someone be it a pet or person that you love is dying. People tell me that this is our life cycle, things are born, live and die. For me, right now it is still very hard to accept. These issues with me started when my mother died and I still can't seem to resolve it after two years. I need to for my sake I can't stand living the rest of my life in gloom and doom. Well, Dan I hope you will start feeling better soon. Everything happens for a reason, we just have to figure out why and how to deal with it again.
Have a great day
