  1. Are this really happening to you? 10 years ago I could have written your post verbatim. There are medication and strategies to talk yourself down from the onset of an attack. Yes, I have left many a buggies full of stuff on some random isle at Costco, snatched up my kid and ran out the door sweating my brains out. The aftermath of an attack feels just the same as running a marathon. 2 days to recover from exhaustion. Stop self diagnosing on the internet – that will make you crazy. I take Zoloft everyday – By the Grace of God my whole life has changed. Talk to a therapist who can diagnose meds if you haven’t already. I wish you the best of luck. I do understand that anxiety is absolutely paralyzing. And no one deserves that.

    2. Hey Melody! I just wanted to give you a quick update since it’s been a while! When we knew we were going to start trying for our third baby, I switched my medication over to Zoloft and it has worked WONDERS without the horrible side effects I was getting with Paxil!! Thanks so much for your recommendation! I hope you’re doing well!
