Hi T.P. and welcome.
Well, it is good news that your husband did not suffer a cardiac episode...I am sure that this is a relief to you!
I am sorry to hear however, that he is dealing with the challenges of bi-polar and A/D and panic attacks.:(
This can be extra tricky for a caregiver who also deals with anxiety...but not impossible.
My oldest daughter was dx'd with bi-polar 2 and has extreme outburst and mood swings.
I learned that the best way that I could help take care of her, was to start by taking care of me first.:) After all, if you are out of commision...how can you help a loved one?
Practicing coping skills to help you deal with stressors is essential. On our main page, 1st post, you will find our Resources with lots of great self help that could benefit you and your husband.
When you need a break, step away and use the meditaion/relaxation links to help get you centered again.
In fact taking time to do this everyday is the best way to lower your anxiety levels...so check them out, and put them into practice.:)
Keep posting with us as well. We are here to understand, care and support you.
