hello everyone I'm a 34 year old female. I'm married and a mom of 4 boys. I started having really bad panic attaches a few years ago. they scare me to the point I think I'm going to die. I also have Pvcs and pacs of the heart which does not help the panic attacks out at all. when I try to explain to my husband what is going on he just tells me it's all in my head and that I'm fine. it's turned into the point that it's making me really depressed. I do not feel like me anymore. I just want to give up. I stopped doing all the things that I used to love to do because of this. I'm living in fear because of all of this. I'm always afraid that I'm going to have another attack and I'm going to look like an idiot. any advice would greatly be appreciated.
Chronic or Recurrent Palpitations
I think you need to talk to an irl friend or something, that's supportive about your panic attacks. I think that would at least help you feel a tiny bit better. I don't have any other advice, since I'm not a mom or have any kids.
Have you noticed anything that triggers your attacks? Have you told your doctor? Or tried any meds? I know propranolol is great for heart palpitations, shakey hands, sweating etc. Panic attacks are awful and have robbed me of my life. I've been agoraphobic for 16 years and Im also a mom. It's very challenging. Im sorry your husband isn't supportive. That's very frustrating when people say "it's all in your head" or "theres nothing to panic about" etc. Panic attacks definitely make you feel like your dying or going crazy. People who don't experience them, do not understand how hard it is. Don't give up. There's alot of different treatment options out there. I'm still trying to find the right one for me. It can be a long journey for some, and for others, a simple medication can make a huge difference. Im here if you need to talk.
