Hi! I was in a severe state of panic for four months striaght due to my assult case. Now it is over. Thank the lord. Yesterday, when I came home, I passed out for three hours. i went to bed at midnight, and slept till one this afternoon. When I came back from church aat six tonight, I fell asleep in chair for two hours. It is only eleven o'clock, and I am exusted. Is it normal, from a long severe panic, when it is over, to be completely exausted?

I can attest to it that anxiety is VERY exhausting! Your body has been in a state of stress right along with your mind. Think of how taut you've probably been holding yourself for these 4 months! A big burden has been lifted off of you now and your body is ready for a restorative rest! :)

Hello BF,
Panic and anxiety can cause major exhaustion. You have been through so much.  Listen to your body. It is telling you to rest and relax.  Take care of yourself dear!
