Just wanted to drop a ine to introduce myself.  I'm a 39yr old with a wonderful husband and three kids.  Five years ago I started to have severe panic attacts and for awhile couldn't hardly leave the house.  It got so bad I really didn't want to go on with life.  Since then I have learned a lot of breathing techniques and self motivation to help me thru them.  They come a lot less now but this time of year always seems worse.  I try not to feel like such a loser but every year when I start going this again I feel like one.  I hope to be able to both have someone to talk to who knows what I'm going thru as well as be someone you can talk to.  I have been a lot worse in the past and just hate that this problem is probably never going to completely go away.


Thanks for listening.

Hey Libby and welcome! We have a lot in common... I too am in my 30's, married, with two girls. It is certainly a challenge to be a wife and mom and cope with a/p disorder! But it can be done, we are living proof! I'm glad to hear that you have gotten some relief with breathing/relaxation techniques. They were a lifesaver for me too. Also glad to have you join us, you will find lots of support and advice...and give some help in return. Post often with questions, comments, whatever!

Take Care
