Hi , everyone!
Lets see where do I start? I am 39 years old and my wonderful life with anxiety started about two years ago with a trip to the dentist. I was getting a filling and he gave me a shot of novacaine and I had a bad reaction to it. I did not know that novacaine has adrenaline in it my heartrate was so fast and I felt like I could not breathe scared me to death!! I thought I was dying right there in the chair. I have always been a happy person always willing to try and do new things never afraid. After that happen I became a mess. About a week after the novicaine induced panic attack I was driving to work and just out of the blue had a panic attack I called 911 the ambulance came they said I was fine and that I was just having a panic attack. I called my husband and he came and got me and took me to the ER. They could find nothing wrong with me. Will in the two years since that has happened I am afraid to go places by myself I will not go to the grocerey store alone and if I have to I stay on the phone the whole time. This stupid thing has just made me insane!! I just want to go back to my old happy self!! The doctors have tryed to put me on meds but I just have every side effect there is. I can manage to go to work because Iam comfertable there but today I stayed home. I worry everyday about my health every twitch pain anything sets me off. I am always afraid I am going to pass out which I never have. I cant even go anywhere and enjoy myself because I am always thinking what if!! What if I have a panic attack or what if I just fall over. I just need to change my pattern of thinking and I dont know how!!
