I have never had any kind of anxiety until I had my daughter 16 months ago. Now I am on Lexapro and still have anxiety attacks at least once a week. Along with this I worry about everything!!! I find myself spending too much time in my head. I have gone to the ER and doctor several times because I would get bad chest pains and couldn't breathe. Even though they have done many tests and everything is great I still feel like something is wrong. I try to talk to my friends about it and they tell me that I am crazy and that I fake my attacks for attention. So now on top of everything that I am dealing with I have lost trust in my two best friends. The doctor told me that it could take up to 3 years to be back to normal again and that I may even stay this way forever. I just want to be normal. Will I ever be back to my old self again?? Am I crazy like my friends say I am?? I would love to hear from you!!

It does get better though. That s what I keep telling myself...

Yes you will be back to your old self and no you are not crazy. My daughter is 9 and was having panic attacks last year and was diagnosed with anxiety disorder so i know what your talking about. Panic attacks are horrible and when she first started having them i wasn't very helpful because i thought she was being silly. Then after a while she was diagnosed and we have been dealing with it for about a year. Her panic attacks did stop after a while. Good luck.
