“I have struggled with depression and anxiety and social phobia for most of my teenage years and beyond. I was on meds up until after I was married. My hubby thought at times they weren’t helping, they were making me worse. Not sure.. My eldest daughter lanita ended up being rushed to hospital having a panic attack. She felt like she couldn’t breathe and her muscles were all tensing up a few years ago. They thought it was a spider bite, but realised it was a panic attack.
