Had Them - Now, I Don't - And - I Don't Miss Them

I've been hyper-active (even ADD) all my life.

I ran wide open on everything I've done. I believe that, in my case, the panic attacks that I experienced were a way of telling me to slow down, smell the roses and re-think personal priorities.

I had warnings of things to come. While shopping in familiar stores, I'd feel detached and lost, which in turn would boost anxiety to a point where I'd have to stop, reassure myself that things were fine, take some breaths and settle down.

The crunch - attack - happened out of the blue - during a meeting. Dizzyness, sweating, and a scary surge running through my brain - had me wondering if I was stroking. My head was weighty and getting heavier by the second - to the point that I simply laid my arms on the table and face planted myself while feeling my body going limp. 30 minutes later, I was able to sit up without help from others.

Doc prescribed anti-depressants that had me stopping at green lights and driving through red lights. Good stuff, eh? Wrong!

So - I started studying nutritional supplements. Over a 2 year period, I eliminated medications and stayed with anti-oxidents. Next, I overhauled my belief system with NLP and the combination of these 2 approaches have eliminated my version of one of the scariest experiences of my life or, panic attacks.

Wow. Just Wow. Could you link me to some of your sources for supplemental betterment? I'm still recovering from my anxiety issues. I've made it a long way, but I still have anxiety attacks at least a few times a day. and it's not often that I can even be as clear headed as I want to be. It's a consistent struggle and I just want it to be gone.
