This is the first time I have come across this website. I believe these forums will be part of the healing process. The reason I am posting this message is because I want to help. I have experienced every symptom and have struggled for years. As a result I learned a lot and with persevierence I managed to heal. There are things I would like to share but before then I thought i'd post this message.

Hi Everyone,

I had my first anxiety attack at the age of 21 in late 1999. Prior to this attack I remember being very emotionally, mentally, and physically stressed. It is as if my barrel finally overflowed. During the attack I really thought I was dying. My symptoms included dizziness, racing heart, hands curling up, numbness, and difficuilty breathing. I was out of the hospital after a few hours when I began to feel normal again. The next day I would have my second and last recurrence that had most of the symptoms but was not as bad. After this second occurence I continued to have anxiety, worrying that I would have this attack again. The only symptom I would continue to have was a sort of andrenaline rush that felt very debilitating. For years I had a tendancy to avoid being social. I also began to experience problems mentally. I began to feel indifferent. I remember not being able to make plans because of how much my health fluxuated. I may not remember all that has helped me heal, but what comes to mind right now are things like: a pure diet, new meaningful friendships, relationships, councelling, reading books, and time. I have had many other health difficulities that I have dealt with all along and continue to do so with some. I think the approach to healing is and individual one. If you continue to find what works and what doesn't work - and don't give up - you will get over it. The struggle has made me stronger and has helped me grown. This is a summary of my experience. If there were any questions at all I would love to hear them.

MP, I had my first panic attack in 2001 I was also 21 I on the other hand wasn't really going through much but that day for me was very stressful before my actual panic attack- I remember this day very well- the anxiety has never gone away but I have these little "seasons" where I am experiencing anxiety to the point where I don't go out (except to the doctors and market) because I am scared that I will have a panic attack in public or around people who don't understand. I have not been able to go out and do anything that I love doing in about 4 years. I have two small children and my anxiety is starting to take its toll on my relationship with their father( the best support I have) I do not want to be on meds and am beginning to be constantly angry and depressed because I am not "normal" my current medical assistance does not pay for therapists who do CBT and I am so scared to be on meds. If you have any insight or suggestions please help!!

when i read things like this it makes me think its all panic attacks and no asthma. im running out of ideas to help prevent these weird feelings. but i do feel all these things on a scale of 1-10 its definetly a 10!!!!!! im so young and too normal for all this.. at least i thought so. but i do think my occupation as a exotic dancer for 3 years caused me to develop all this. i was the happiest kid and teen till now.
