panick attack, fear of being alone outside
hello, i just came around this site. let me present myself my name is daisy and im 27 years old. i think i've been a person that worries to much about all my life. a few years back i started having those really fast heartbeat but i didn't pay attention to them so they were going back and forth but nothing to worry. i was living my life normally until march 2011 when i had my first panic attack. it was so scared i thought i was about to stop breathing and was on my way home from work on the bus. i took myself to the emergency room since then i made one more visit to the ER. the doctors did all the exam and told me it was surely my stomach problem causing those attacks. since then my life hasnt been the same and people around me dont understand why i said i dont feel ok when the doctors said nothing is wrong with me. now i cant take buses cause im afraid to have an attacks. ive been stuck home for months now. i lost some weight cause i thought it was my stomach and most things i was eating where triggering my attack so i started being scared of eating most foods.
i feel a bit better now after about 8months but im stil not able to move around by myself. i dont know how to control this anxiety i need help, because i have to go back to school at the end of this year and im afraid that i wont be able to because of this anxiety and fear of something happening. i am not taking any medications, cause they were just making my problem worst, and my doctor seem to think i was overreacting and just kept telling me it was stress and i needed some rest.
please i need some help, i feel like im not in control of my life anymore. sorry for my long post but i was so happy to talk to people who would fully understand me that i just let myself go.
