hi am a person who suffers from anxiety and panic attacks. I am wondering if I have unipolar depression too because some days I feel happy and have a lot of energy and can do a lot of things. On bad days I have low self esteem, I don't sleep well and I have less apetite...I drink too much coffee and get low glucose in my body. I have ruled out bipolar because I don't think I have had a manic episode yet. My worst problem right now is panic attacks. I panic if I have to do something stressful. I go shopping alone and I find myself feelingg very scared or very excited and suddenly crying or talking alot in the middle of the street. I was angry because I experienced bullying at my job some time ago. And now the emotinal state has built up to panic attacks and sudden feelings of guilt and low self esteem. I sometimes feel I'm going slightly crazy. I can't find any therapist at the moment. All the energy I feel on good days are beneficial to my life, but then I wake up monday and all that joy and happiness is gone. I talk a lot to myslef, more then normal when I'm alone. One week ago I couldn't sleep and eat very much for about 2-3 days and I wondered if I had a psychoses and needed to admit myself to a hospital. The worst thing that is happening to me right now is that I feel anxious a lot of the time.

I wonder if anyone knows how serious I should take my state of mind and do you think I should try to get some medication?

i eventually talked to a psychiatrist later next week. my panic attacks are better now i don't get them. The psychiatrist said that I had been isolating too much she said i needed to go out and meet poeple more. Yes coffee can make people nervous it's the caffeine. I tried to go to macdonalds and have a meal and don't think negative. I managed to sit there for 20 minutes without panickig. it isn't good to be alone so much.

Anyway thanks for answering my post hope you are doing fine too :)

hi hopeyou feelin better. i think depression is all about having way too much emotion. i wear all my feelins on my sleeve. i.realise that now after years of cycling depression. i find that i like who i am though and as i recover from another dark period i am changing my life so i do what i want and instead of fighting the panic i am feelin it acknowledging it and living and breathing in spite of these sneaky panic attacks.
i had them years ago ispent my babies first two years thinking i was gonna die. but haa ha i beat thenm andd got backkk to work andddd forfive years no panic . this year ii started feelin bad again but im still here it feels like not actuallytuned in on edge all time. the stress is incredible butt we can beat this
