Welcome to the Healing Well family, we are very happy that you have found us and hope that you stay with us. This is a very caring and supportive group of people where you will be able to find some guidance and hopefully some reassurance.
It sounds like you are dealing anxiety/panic, now that you have found us you won't be alone in this battle. Many of us here, myself included, feel the same way you are feeling. It can be scary and overwhelming at times. There is a thread on this page on Relaxation Techniques and one on CBT Therapy - again some good information that may be of help to you.
Please make sure to check out the resources in the yellow box to the right - there is some great information there. Also, as Lyn said, make sure to read some old posts as you will also find a ton of helpful tips and information. Feel free to post any time to vent, ask questions, to lend your point of view, or to let us know how you are doing.
Again, welcome to Healing Well. We look forward to getting to know you better.
