sassy2684 Since giving birth to my third daughter in November I no longer feel like myself. I have been diagnosed with post partum depression and panic attacks. My thoughts get the best of me and I can't cope any longer. I am married but he doesn't understand what I go through on a daily basis. I'm scared to think :-'(

For better or WORSE!!

I guess I am never going to get better. I seem to be getting worse than better. I have started having these horrible panic attacks again and I'm terrible frightened by them. I always tell myself I'm not dying and not going to die but that's how I feel. That I am going to die and not see my daughters again. My panic attacks are getting the best of me once again and are starting to make it where I don't want to leave the house. I seem to wake up to them and go to sleep with them. Why cant I get better, why do I have to feel worse then before. Im scared :'(

I'm so sorry for you. I know no one is ever in the same place, but maybe close, with that gorilla on my chest when I woke up. My psychiatrist tried to get to the source, and my social worker sent me a lot of books on panic attacks and anxiety. Mine only came before noon. I know no meds were changed since I can't have any of the SSRI's which are good for anxiety.

You might want to call your Dr. They might be able to call something in that would help get you feel a tinge better. I think there will be "the other side." I'm hoping and prayed you'll pull through.

Sounds like panic disorder. The panic attacks will stop when you stop fearing them. I have them, I play with them, I can flick it off as quickly as it starts and then I get a rush, it's a nice feeling, like being energised. I kind of like them. It's the warpy thinking that anxiety causes me that f**ks me up.

However on a serious note, I completely understand your pain, I've been struggling with the mental side of my anxiety for years and only recently nearly took my own life as it all felt so hopeless. Like I'd tried everything. It is only my baby girl that keeps me holding on by the skin of my teeth. Much love
