hi babyj2, welcome to hw! we are glad to have you and there are many great people who will help and give wonderful advice and ideas. Are you going to a doctor or therapist? any meds? I dont know how genetic it is in my family, but i have had panic attacks for over 8 years. Im kinda in a rut, but trying hard to come out of it, good days and bad days, with small baby steps each time. There is always support here, and we all some things in common with this dreaded a/p. Please keep posting and let us help you all we can. HUGS

hello, I too am trying to deal w/ anxiety. I have been in treatment for depression for just over 2 years and the anxiety has shown it ugly face within the past 8mo. My dr and I are still trying to find a method of treat ment that is right for me. I find it hard to muster up the energy anymore to go anywhere and do anything but the research that i have found is helping me deal w/ it. The More Ya Know the better you feel....@ least in my case.

Hi to both of you!! I am new here as well. From what I have read and seen this forum seems to be a great place for people with a/p and depression.
Baby- you said that depression and anxiety run in your family? Has other family members been treated and what treatments worked for them? I agree that a lot of people who don't know what it is like think it is "no big deal" because even though it shows pyhsical symptoms it doesn't result in anything (that the other people can see). Just remember that there are people who are sympathetic to your plight and want to see you get better. If you ever need to talk to someone or have a question let me know.
I am glad that you have a Dr. that is willing to help you find a good treatment. It is true that the more you know (usually) the better you feel. Knowing is half the battle :)

HI and welcome to both of you.. :-) . Hopefully by finding this wonderful site, and learning theres many  people who feel the same way and go through the same things as you,you should feel that little bit better...I know I did!. It was such a relief to know I wasnt alone. I have been suffering with A/P off and on for a number of years now. I have good days and bad days and like many others..there have been times when I felt I was going totally and utterly crazy and would never get out of the black hole that I was in...BUT you do....and that is what keeps me going. If I'm having a 'setback'..then I have got to have been making progress right?!....I know I can be ok again. I have found that CBT works really well for me (cognitive behavioural therapy ) there are a number of online courses I think. I have lessons e-mailed to me every few days by a lady on here.
 Take care..jayne xxxxx
