    In need of help

    So this is likely going to be quite a complicated post. This is also the first post on this forum, and one that I feel like I just need to write. So far the only people I've talked to are close family members (which was already a pretty large step for me). I should also make clear that I have...

    Has anyone dealt with the burden of taking care of someone, especially you having panic attacks as a result? How did you overcome them?

    I'm going through this problem, and I want to hear your story for encouragement. How hard was it for you to take care for someone? How did you deal with the stress, especially the panic attacks? Did you have hope that it would turn around? If religious, how did your faith play a part?

    Throughout the years, another person started to develop in my head. I think it all began when I was around 14 and I've realized their presence but didn't know what it was.

    I miss USA.

    My life in America was lonely. The region I lived (cannot tell you exactly which state it is) was devoid of life and people were too busy to hang out with me. Life sucked. But I had opportunities that could lead to good friendships. Plenty of mental help, and good amount of social support. But...
