I am from Brasil, 45, psychologist, and had my first panic attack about 12 years ago..those times the idea of going crazy crossed my mind and, since then, I lost much of the confidence I had on myself. Anyway, I had just two panic episodes that time and until about a month ago, nothing else happenned, besides the self confidence still be lesser than before the attacks.
But since Xmas the idea crossed my mind again, due a two years of heavy stress with family health matters..since then I have been increasingly feeling bad and, about 3 weeks ago, I had the diagnostic of especific phobic anxiety - right about getting crazy.
I am on a lot of treatments, like acupuncture, psychotherapy on trauma, TFT, TAT etc, and now anthroposophic medicines..besides a medicine to anxiety ( chemical) and the possibility of a serotonine recapturer, that I am resisting to have, because I want to try the anthroposophical first.
I found this forum, searching on google for: "fear of going crazy" and I was moved with so many people describing exactly what I feel.. I wanted to join you ( to feel safer:) and also to suggest you all to look for anthroposophical medicines. They really stopped the highest anxiety attack I had till now and I am trusting they will recover everything that has to be recovered, to be ok again.
I will put a link here, if someone wants to take a look:
I want to hug you all and, as I wish to myself, I wish you all complete recover as soon as possible.
Be with God
