I have been suffering from panic attacks for several years now. The first o­ne, I was sleeping and woke up with my mind racing and heart beating out of my chest. I got out of the bed and went to the kitchen for some water. Then it hit me, I was having a heart attack.

I went to the bathroom and got some aspirin. I was so freaked out I had my clothes o­n and was ready to go to the hospital when I woke my husband up to take me. He told me to lay back down and just breath. Deep breaths, hold them and let it out slowly. OK so that worked for a few times. But then I was having PA's more often and I really thought I was going crazy.

I got pregnant with my first child in August 03. Everything was great till I realized I was going to have a baby and my whole life was getting ready to change. I was so scared to take my meds because I didn't know if it would hurt the baby, so I just had to deal with it o­n my o­n. That was very hard. I'm a worrier. I didn't think I would be a good mom and wife. I started back o­n the meds because the Doctor told me I had to because I was putting to much stress o­n the baby. I was o­n bed rest for 3 days after a bad PA.

I started seeing a councilor every week for several months then every other week til I was o­nly going about 1 time every 6 weeks. I stopped taking the meds and was feeling very good. Then all of a sudden I started feeling a little shaky. When I told my husband I thought I was having a PA, it hit me hard. I couldn't do anything. I could not even pick my son up. I was afraid I would drop him. I do not eat when I feel like this. I haven't eaten in 2 days and my councilor will not be able to see me for 2 weeks. I feel like I'm a bad mom because I can't handle the way I feel and also take care of my 8 month old son. I hope that I can get my life back o­n track so I can enjoy my son.

You can stil get your life back
It's really true that you can still get your life back to normal. All you have to do is undergo some therapy that you can do in your own. For example, aroma therapy, water therapy and massage therapy. These are very effective in handling your panic attacks. However, if you want to cure them naturally as soon as possible then it would be best to visit http://www.panicsurvivor.com/i...alth.html.
