I Am a Single Mother And...

 I am a single mother and after i had my second daughter, i had panic attacks like crazy! my first one, i swear, i thought i was going to die! i was picturing myself being rushed to the ER! i continued to have them for alomst 2 yrs straight, every night.  it got to the point where i would not leave the house, and if i did, i had to be back by 7pm latest.  it was terrible.  my yougest is now 7, and ive made it through, with the help of a woman that worked for an anxiety "helpline" she was awesome and so understanding, she helped me so much and i am so thankful that she was there for me, we never met face-to-face, and it wouldve been nice.  every now and then i feel the anxiety come on (like yesterday) i am now able to keep it under control, or at least i do my best too.  sometimes its felt pretty scary and ive cried alot because ive been so scared.  i gotta keep my faith in God, and call upon Him when i start to feel the edge, it helps me alot.  My oldest (whos9) has had a couple of panic attacks, and it breaks my heart! she has seen my at my worst, so many times when i could not move she was there to rub my back....

There is miracle in prayers. Seek medical help also,
