Paula's survival story

Posted by: paula222uk on Monday, January 03, 2005

 On a winter’s night in December 1989 after a very emotional time, I suffered from a panic attack. All I could do was to lay with my boyfriend until it subsides. I felt my life was ending and the dread I felt was unbelievable! I carried o­n suffering until I got pregnant, maybe hormones have something to do with it? (coz they seemed to vanish overnight!) Can’t be pregnant forever though, can you? *sigh* Over the years I've suffered o­n and off but went months or a year without a full blown panic attack, anxiety was always pretty high though. Then in July 2004 after drinking too much the night before I had a full blown attack, and again a few months later.

March 2004 I got poorly with a virus that affected my head and sinuses (nothing that I’d experienced before ) For a whole week I kept going into panic attacks , I really did feel I was going totally nuts and the 'white van' would be 'coming for me very soon ' ! I read up sooooo much o­n anxiety depression and panic attacks and to keep myself 'distracted' I created my own website.

From May 2004 to July 2004 I had a course of Hypnosis which I found helped a lot and I studied 'self hypnosis' o­n the net. I was so determined that it wouldn't control my life, that it wouldn't keep me stuck in the house, that it wouldn't make me live in fear. I will try anything now to make my life more bearable , I don't feel that I am totally cured ,but 99% of the time , I CAN control them by doing something. The more in control you feel , the more confidence you get to go out in the world , knowing you have the tools (in your head) to overcome it .

The power of the mind is absolutely amazing! Never give up, life isn't meant to be easy; it's an adventure and a challenge! I believe you are pre disposed genetically to anxiety and panic attacks, I believe in time, with knowledge, support, therapy and will power, you will feel different and you will SURVIVE!

Best wishes

Anxiety & Depression
Written by Sparkle on November 29, 2009

I believe that anxiety and depression cannot be cured by medication, but it only suppresses the symptoms of the problem, and it doesn't get to the root of the actual problem. How our bodies respond is a direct reaction from our thought process. Fears, anxieties, and depression is a direct result from the wrong thoughts which goes way deeper than just this physical realm.
