Just to add my 2 Cents, I know how painful the aftermath of panic attacks can be. Try a chiropractor. Mine can do wonders for me with tight painful musels. Neck adjustments even help with my seasonal allergies.

Hey Drum, first I'll start out by offering you a large hug because it sounds like you need it badly. Second, while I can't say I understand how you feel, because I don't and can only imagine what it feels like, I would like to offer you a phrase that a friend of mine said. I don't know where she got it or if she made it up, but it has helped me a few times.

"You don't know how strong you are until being strong is all you have."

That being said, I'll offer you another hug and a suggestion. Someone already mentioned it earlier on page one I believe, but you say that meditation doesn't work for you because thoughts keep popping into your head? Try something that doesn't require thinking such as kickboxing, boxing, karate, tai-quan-do, etc. It sounds as though I'm a lot like you in how I think. I have trouble just sitting down and relaxing because I'm constantly thinking that's why I rarely sit down. I love sports and activities that involve no thought at all or very little, such as basketball, boxing, track, and horses. It's based off of instinct and your gut.

Also try a nutrtionist, I know that a person's diet affects them in more ways than most people believe, and it really could help relieve some of your symptoms. Also have you tried a journal? I know writing down your thoughts can and does help you emotionally and mentally.

And yes, please remember that we (the forum members) are here if you ever need us to listen.

That's a lot for one person to have to deal with. Wish there was something to say to make it better.

I ate dirt today, wish it was on video...that would surely have made you laugh at least

Just wanted to say you sound like an amazing girl and you should be proud of being able to deal with all this day to day. Your really strong. I think the last thing you should do is depleat your body of the one good nutritional aspect your getting daily though ( your vitamins). If you don't eat well or healthy then you most defiantly do need these. If I were as sick as you I'd focus on eating well as your body heals from the inside out. We all eat like sh*t and are brought up eating this way and it really reeks havoc on our health. I've been juicing for months now getting the proper nutrition and most of my bad health has actually just about vanished. I also have (had) the same autoimmune disease as you but I haven't had any outbreaks since I started to take care of my health and end eating all this crud. Anyway I'm not saying it will magically help all of your issues but I will say that it would most definitely help LOTS!
Goodluck to you!

Thanks everyone! Today was a really good day..I made it home in time to go to church with my family for father's day which made my dad really happy, he had no idea I was even coming home.

Then after church I came home and spent some time with each of my horses before saddling Lark and riding to my grandparent's house which is about 3 miles away...We took our time and poked a long our favorite trails in the shade, made it to my Nana's and I unsaddled and let Lark graze around the pond there while I sat on the porch with grandparents and talked for a few hours..Then I saddles back up and rode home, gave Lark a bath and fed everyone..Changed clothes and then went to Stepmom's parent's house for dinner.. Now home and just glad to be able to have a break from SC and going to ride again tomorrow!

No allergic reactions today at all.. No feeling anxious all day, no panic attacks.. Now I just have a sore butt and legs. Note to self: After not sitting in a saddle for 6 weeks it's not smart to get on and feel as thought you should long trot 2ish miles..in shorts.. Not a very good idea.

Drumrunner - So glad you had a great day! Seems likes that has been long overdue. I can just imagine too how happy your dad must have been that you made it home for fathers day! What a great gift!! Then, you being able to ride was the icing on the cake and seems like it was great therapy for you....just what you needed. Follow your heart dear and your higher power - they will show you the way!

Hope you have a great nights sleep full of wonderful dreams!

Thank you, he was very glad to see me..He was a greeter at the door this morning and I walked in and he just started laughing and hugged me.. I walked in to sit down and saw two of my sisters sitting together and the one I'm closest to saw me out of the corner of her eye and then had to look again then screamed and ran over to me, started crying and then made me cry.. People were staring like we were crazy people..We went to Lane Packing to pick up peaches before heading to Stepmom's parent's and Holly and I were goofing around and ended up like this..This kid is my best friend.. There's 7 years between us but everyone thinks we're twins.

Well, sad to leave today but now I'm back in SC.. I already miss home and can't sleep. I did bring my bow with me for another stress release. It helps, I'm also going to try to teach sister to shoot. Maybe she'll pick it up and give her a new hobby besides the video games and dying her hair different each week.. who knows?

DrumRunner.
Do you have a specialist in the area that deals only with medication and interactions.
That is a shed load of drugs you are on and the possibilities for drug interactions making some of your symptoms worse is large.

Over here you can be refered to a drug specialist who will go through all your medications and the interactions and will suggest alternatives with less interactions or different drugs that may cut down the amount you are taking.

I know it is hard to do but Please take time to yourself, you do not have to be the strong one all the time!

I would say that you should go back to your dads as often as posssible and when you go out riding do NOT think about the situation.
I have been in a similar situation when my mum was admitted to hospital with massive internal bleeding, she nearly died and was in a coma for a few weeks. My dad fell to bits and I had to be the strong one and look after my dad and my 2 younger siblings. It is OK to ask for help!!

Can I ask why your dad didnt get custody of your younger sister?

Lots of hugs from the UK and If you need to talk you are more then welcome to PM me.
