    I'm 42, and I was in your position a few weeks ago when I had a nervous breakdown, and was also suicidal. My wife took me to my psychiatrist, and he recommended that I stay in the hospital (the ward) for a few days while we get everything figured out, and so that I was no danger to myself. I'm not saying this is what you should do, but this is where I was. It is good, though, to find someone to talk to, even if it is your psychiatrist. I got my medications balanced back out and on a better program for my life right now. Part of that program is keeping open about how I am feeling, so that I do not get into that sort of a situation again.

    My dear Phyllis, I read your post in another forum and it bothered me for you. I was going to come back and post but I couldn't find it. I just looked up and saw you here so decided to pop in and speak to you.

    I'm sorry this is making you so upset. I know what Panic Attacks will do to you because I have them. Not as much as I used to have them, but they pop up without an invitation!!

    I think I remember you were seeing a councelor and that is good. I hope you have settled this issue for now. If not, I pray you will soon.

    I just turned 69 years old. Now that is when "panic" poped up again. that was all I could think of. I have lost 2 brothers and 1 sister in such a short time and that was right up here on top of the heap.

    I have some good Drs. and they have tried to help me and I am a lot better now. All that stewing cases my Blood Pressure to spike high as the sky.

    I don't know how to tell you to get thru this, but your Drs. will be a great help. I have stopped obsessing over my age and trying to be thankful for each day I have. It still runs thru my mind now and again, but I try to start doing something to get my mind off of it.

    I just want you to know I am thinking about you. Can you believe how many years we have chatted here on BT ?? Its been a few. I want you to be happy and enjoy life each day at a time.


    all my love, Jo
    Did you ever know that you're my hero and every thing I would like to be I can fly higher than an eagle
    'cause you are the wind beneath my wings

    for my brother Ben

    Well great. It will take a hike soon!! . Phyllis, you are a doll. I knew you would get things worked out.

    I know about Bio-Feedback. It's been so long since I did it I can't remember all the ins and outs. Mal Did a good job of describing it.

    I could not relax. the more I tried the worse I got. I went to a pain Clinic as an in-patient. I was there about 5 + weeks. There is so much involved in my story I am afraid I can't remember it all.

    My life was a mess. I had Chronic Migrain's. Really bad ones. Anyway, I didn't even understand why I was there for several weeks. I just know they had differant things to help us relax. Nothing phased me at all. They made things worse.

    So, they said they would try bio-feedback. I went into a very small room, had to sit in a huge lounge chair. they put leads on my head and it was all connected up to a computer type thingy outside the room. the tech that was doing it would speak softly to me, ask my how this felt or questions like that. Her voice kept getting lower and lower. I don't think I managed the first few times. She would explain what was going on with my brain while I was in the little room.

    I went in one day, sat down, we started the routine. It was nice and cool in the room. I started breathing in and out, very slowly. The next thing I remembered The Tech ran into the room, started shaking me asking me if I was alright!!

    I had relaxed, I thought that was what they wanted me to do. I had put myself to sleep!! lol lol They were very pleased and so was I. I had a few more appointments and I was doing so good I was relaxing in other things everybody did together.

    Now Phyllis, You've got to remember I am not young and that was in the late 1980's. That is what I remember of how they treated me. They did have other things they worked on with some of the other Patients. None of it was painful, disturbing in any way.

    They did tell me I was the worse patient they had ever treated just learning how to relax!!

    So, if your therapist is suggesting this I would advice you to try it. you can always stop it anytime you want. The little room almost made me have a panic attack!! I even got thru that.

    It was interesting to me and I learned a lot. things I already knew, but had stuck them back in behind my brains!! lol lol

    I hope I've said something helpful, but ignore this if you want to.

    You take care sweet giggles!!


    One thing I forgot to tell you. I had a computer screen on the table in front of my chair. I could watch my brain waves and it would beep if my anxiety level got high. then I had to work harder to get it to normal again.

    Exclamation Whoa, Jo, hold on!!!...Lol

    The subject hasn't come up, again, because, I told her, I really wanted to try talking, first.
    So, we're going to try that and see where it leads and, *maybe*, bio-feedback, later!
