In 2008, I was a happy newlywed.
Out of seemingly nowhere, I began suffering from severe panic attacks. I thought I was having a heart attack and going crazy.
People would tell me that I should just “calm down” and be grateful for what I had. It’s tough when your injury or illness isn’t visible!
It got worse after I had my first child. I was even hospitalized.
I’ve used medicine, alcohol, oversleeping, therapy, food, and exercise to cope.
Most days, I’m really good. I’m happy to have more good days than bad.
I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone, you are enough, you can be happy and you can overcome.
