im not trying to sound like a dick by asking this, and if u dont wanna answer this than id understand that too. but i was just wondering how u "recently developed" (as u put it) and panic disorder? was it like brought on by something?


i think that i have mild OCD, which i know alot of people do, cuz i know my friend had it and i do some of th things he did. if i touch something that feels weird with my left hand, i have to touch it with my right. and i pull my cuticles back in the same order cuz it feels like they itch, and if i dont do it in that order itll drive me crazy.

I don't know if this is a mental disorder,but in 6th grade I got the weirdest phobias. Like I couldn't even go on an elevator or escaltor,and I would wake up everynight and couldn't sleep. I went to Physcologist (SP?) and he helped me get over everything,and I'm fine now.

Have you seen a doctor about your panic attacks? If you haven't you should really go see one.

Well I started getting panic attacks outta no where. Went to a psyciatrist.. Got Prozac, but it takes 4-6 weeks to kick in. So im on Klonapins till it starts working cause theyre quicker working and for more short term

Just took .5mg and im happy as hell. those things are strong

Read his post again. He said he's on it, it just hasn't taken effect yet.

And I say again, Prozac is awful, don't take it. It basically numbs you mentally, so you're not anxious or depressed, but you're not really ever happy or excited either. At least that's how I felt when I was on it. Perhaps that's how all anti-depressants work, I don't know.

All anti-depressants are different. I've felt like **** on Zoloft, and felt fine on Mirtzapine (Remeron). Prozac might not work for me either, but thats what sucks about SSRI antidepressants.. trial and error

Those klonapins really hit the spot though. Theyre so potent, .50mg does alot

I'm waiting for some asshole to come in here and tell you that it's just all in your mind and "to stop being a ***** and get over it."

I haven't been in a good arguement/flamefest in awhile.

Hope you get better. One of my good friends had clinical depression, and it was horrible.

Thanks. I had depression a while back, its a mental torture alot of the time. I ended up overdosing on Xanax(Alprazolam/Benzodiazpine) sometime around Feburary. Im alot better now, its just coping with anxiety/panic.

Drink water. Water cures everything.

Drink water, get enough sleep, do something productive, forget about your troubles.

Emotional/mental trauma is a crutch.

Meh, I have OCD, nobody can touch my hands or I freak out, and I can't touch anyone's hands either.

I don't care though, plus also I hate food/grease on my hand.

By definition it is all in his mind...

To the OP, I work for a non profit panic relief organization, PM me if you want info.
