Hi MB and welcome!
I am really sorry to hear about the struggles that you are recently going through...it sounds as if there are current circumstances that are adding to an already existing A/D issue...and that was all combining to create the panic episode yesterday.
What if anything have you tried thus far in terms of treatment? Any therapy/self-help, or meds?
If you can give us a little more background...we can better advise you on how to make a step for getting help.
Know that you are not alone on your challenges...we understand and care...so post anytime!
I used to be on Buspar as-needed, but since I'm home for the holidays (Thankfully for only the next couple days) I can't exactly see my psychiatrist right now. I'm going to make an appointment as soon as I get back to school, as I want to get on Xanax or another anti-anxiety drug. That said, I'm also going to see if they can get me on a different antidepressant, as I don't think Prozac is working for me anymore.
I've dealt with depression for about
half my life. But I'd never had it this bad before. This past September I was sleeping 16 hours a day and so fatigued that just walking to the bathroom took a monumental effort.
