smhair  since i can remember i ahve always been a happy go lucky person,but when i was a child i always was scared something was oing to happen to my parents while i was away at a friends or at school..nothing ever did but when i turned 21 my dad died when i was 4 months pregant with my 1st child,very very sad but bounced back with the support from  my mom.. at 31 my mom died,by this time i have 4 kids whom she all met and loved n was close to. during 2002-2009 i wasin a relationship with a drug addict who stole from me the whole time,still i was happy(i think)at least not like i am now. when my mom died something clicked and i ended the relationship and met a wonderful man that i am now engaged to,he doesnt drink or do drugs and he is with me 24/7 unless we r working and has taken on the daddy role of my kids..now its 2012-why do i wake up crying thinking im a loser a failure and i have no purpose other than raising the kids,i dont wanna go out anymore i have maybe 2 friends,no family,just my fiances....could it be that 3 yrs later the deaths of my parents are just now catchng up to me? what should i do,i have panic attacks multiple times a day and am on xanex but it isnt working because its just a darn band aid for something deeper.. right?? should i see a psychiatris or what? any feedback is greatly appreciated...

Yes, you should see a psychiatrist or a counselor. Whether this is chemical embalance or situational, you need help with it. Keep posting, it does help. But get some help, it doesn't sound that bad, so maybe you can nip it in the bud.

Do be proactive about your mental health.

Keep posting...

For the panic attacks, try deep breathing. In through the nose and out through the mouth. Called smelling the roses and blowing out the candles. It really does help.

Hi panic,

I vote for seeing a psychiatrist or a counselor. They can let you know if you need meds, or therapy or both. It sounds like you're depressed for sure, and yes it could be over suppressed emotions from your past problems. It could be a chemical imbalance. The doctor can help you figure that out.

It sound like you could use someone to talk to and this forum is a good place to be for that. There are a lot of nice people here who will listen to you and not judge you.

Dear Panic,

and it is 3 for 3. Doc and therapist is the answer. Just stuff you have to work through and process that is trying to come out on its own sounds like.

Deep breathing is magically thing that takes away panic attacks if you slowly concentrate on the breath coming in and out of your body. Practice makes perfect!

Hang in there you will be fine for those kids of yours and your new love!
Be still and know there is Peace.

I would see the shrink and the counselor too, I do actually see both, and I would cut out the Xanex, its a CNS depressant and long term use can cause depression or worsen current symptoms. No I am not giving out medical advice its just what i've been told by 3 psychdrs and 2 neurologists from my own experience. You propably have a lot of undealt with grief not to mention trust issues from your last relationship and guilt for what you exposed your children to and when is marriage not terrifying? If I were you I would want at least a head start on all of that before I said the forever things. Just my opinion, no judgement, I'm a single mom and a recovering drug addict so there ain't no high horses around here. :-)

Do not cut out any medications though without talking to the doctor first. Xanax can cause cognative problems if taken of a long period of time. I have been taking it for 20 years and have not had a problem with that or addiction. So do talk to your doctor before changing any of your meds.
