My dear FrumSupport friends,

I admire your courage to keep fighting through your illness, and wanted to tell you this story.

I had been seeing a therapist for 2-3 years for panic attacks. Nothing - deep breathing, cognitive therapy, self help books - worked. I thought I wasn't trying hard enough. It was painful to have so much anxiety...it was really impairing my life.

My husband had some doubts as to how well my thyroid medication was working, and I changed doctors. The doctor said I was having a toxic reaction in my body, and took me off the thyroid meds.

That was 6 weeks ago. Before this happened, I had suffered daily (and sometimes multiple times a day) panic attacks. My heart was constantly racing. Now, in 6 weeks I have not taken 1 Ativan.

To those of you who doubt your diagnosis or want to change doctors: trust your instincts. Had it not been for my husband I may still be having panic attacks today.

Nope. Not an ounce of anxiety. Life as usual.
