I am a upper 30s yr old male and in generally great health. I suffered 2 bad panic attacks which took me to the ER only to be told my heart and blood work are perfect (cha-ching$$!) But ever since they started my life has changed. All in the last month. Why now? I have been a super outgoing and social person my entire life! I can barely go out in public without the gripping fear another attack will happen! We all know what that's like so need to describe it. I dread going on any psycho-tropic drug for fear of addiction, impotence, or other organ ailments. I have 2 young children and a wife I love and cherish. I just want my life back... I currently have Alprazolam .5mg prescribed in case of an attack, but just today I ventured out to an appointment (after taking it) and had to abruptly come home as I became overwhelmed while driving! I was able to gather my senses and make it home safely where I immediately calmed down and became fine. This is sooo hard to deal with and even though I pray and ask Jesus for strength, the going out in public and FEAR of a Panic Attack is ruining my life. Your help and suggestions are greatly appreciated...
