How is it that you can be completely normal for 40 years, then suddenly have a panic attack and now have life long anxiety? Did I flip a switch in my brain?
(Redlands Ca us )
I have always dealt with life's emotions. I have a family and life was quite normal. I suddenly had some kid change stress and suffered my very first panic attack. I now suffer from anxiety and a panic disorder that consumes every free moment. It is destroying my family and my life because it never stops? It's completely destructing, and depressing. I can no longer sleep more then 2 hours a night and the only pills that help, benzodiazepines are destructive. I feel so much better on them but they are addicting. I'm so frustrated with myself, as I try and talk to my wife and kids all I can think about is my new anxiety and is this now my new reality for life? How will I work when I cant even get through a day?
