I am 36 years of age and believe i am suffering from depression and severe panic attacks. I feel so lost and have no one i can really talk to about these feelings. i am married and have 2 young children (6 & 4). my husband is only home for 3 days every fortnight due to work. I feel like I have lost all direction. I have withdrawn from all social situations, have few real friends and really dont know where to start to reconnect with people and rebuild my life. the negative thoughts and the crying are exhausting. some nights i sleep and some nights i dont. I live in rural qld and to talk to people about feelings is not easy to do. Just to talk to someone who understands the feelings would be appriecated. I sometimes get these crippling panic attacks which start with a sick feeling in the stomach, then i cant breathe, then i cry and just end a frozen mess. i try to breathe through them but its hard.
