Hey I hope you are feeling better. I know those panic attacks can make you feel horrible. I started having them when I was 15 yrs old and I didn't even know what it was. They went on for years until I was in my early twenties. I finally had it explained to me by a doctor when I was diagnosed with depression. He also diagnosed me with panic anxiety disorder. I was relieved it had a name. All those years I feared I was losing my mind. I tried telling my mother when I was a teenager and she didn't seem to believe me or think that there was anything going on. I see that some traumatic events triggered yours at a young age. I would like to chat with you about that sometime because I think that there were some things that triggered mine as well.
