I am someone who is in severe manic depression right now in my life. My little eleven year old angel (Whom) was my only child passed away 35 days ago. I am having a very difficult time in how to cope with this, and I think my panic attacks are even more unbearable because my precious little girl left me so unbelievably sudden. I didn't have time to prepare myself, and most importantly I didn't have time to say goodbye to my baby.

My family, friends, and the man that I love so dearly are completely NOT knowing how to deal with me, or how to help me. I feel like everyone is trying to either figure out how to deal with me, or they are just there (More less) feeling guilty for me; so that's why they are around. I feel like they are doing it more for themselves.

The man I love and whom I have cared for for such a long period of time, is so selfish that even when I call him crying at night....he doesn't answer; and will tell me the next day that he is busy with his nephews (Who are precious as well), but it just hurts. It hurts because the VERY few people I have turned too... Keep letting me down. NOW! I mean, I don't want no one to baby me, but I find it so very selfish of him and a friend who I have always been there to just treat me that way.

They see that this is my most horrible time in my life, and they are more concerned about having to deal with me than to really just be there for me.

I miss my daughter so much that I just pray to God to let me die. There is no point for me to go on right now. There is no hope and there is no happiness anymore.

Please someone help me. Please.

I lost my sister when I was 13, she was 21. My parents were 34 and 35. For me as a brother it seems to be getting worse as I get older. Wishing she was here, seeing what i'm doing and accomplishing. I have never visited her grave, i know it's close, but don't know where it is. I have no advice, just keep doing what I do...keep on going.

Your post made tears literally jump from my eyes. I don't even know your name and my heart breaks for you. I have a 12-year-old little girl, and I know I would feel exactly as you do if, God forbid...I have said many times that I would just lay down and die if anything happened to her. She, too, is my only child. I suffered a horrible miscarriage 7 years ago at 5 months of pregnancy; that devastated me to the point that it was a physical struggle for me to just get out of bed, to bathe and prepare food for my daughter, to do laundry, even to get up and pee. I suffered for YEARS. I still avoid the infant department in every store I go into, without even realizing it until later on. 3 weeks after the loss of my baby, the father, who had been helping me take care of my daughter (and myself), left me. I knew no one else who had been through what I was going through. I had never felt so completely alone or isolated in my entire life. I felt like everyone just abandoned me, that my sadness was toxic to them and that they wanted to get away from me. I was hurt, because I'm the type of person who will drop everything to be there when someone I love needs me. I felt like the people around me didn't know how to handle my grief, and some probably felt that it was 'overblown,' because my baby hadn't been born before she died. I remember my chest feeling empty, my arms hurting, not being able to even touch my stomach without my hand jerking away and balling up into a fist. It was horrible.

What I'm saying is, I understand your feeling of grief and isolation. I understand the hopelessness. I cannot tell you how many times I would be driving down the street and think to myself, 'All I have to do is turn the wheel a little to the right, into oncoming traffic, and all of this will go away.' Life was unbearable. I felt like that guy in Greek mythology who has to push the boulder up the mountain, day after day after day, only to have it roll back down just as he reached the top. And sleep was no escape, either. I'd just have dreams about my ex, about our baby, and other random nightmares. I tried to get counseling, but no one wanted to listen. They just wanted to shove pills down my throat.

If I could be there for you, a total stranger, and just hold you and let you cry, I would. I would make you eat little bits, bring you tea, rub your back, field your visitors, and just sit in the same room quietly if that's what you needed. Why? Because as mothers, I believe we are all sisters in our love for our children, and we need to stick together. What you're feeling now is horrible, but it's the way you are programmed to feel. Just because you gave birth and she was no longer physically inside your body, she was still a part of you. She was your heart and no mother should EVER have to endure the loss of a child. EVER. It's not natural. It affects us on a primal level and causes a pain that no spoken language could ever communicate.

I don't know if you're still reading these, but if you are, please know that there is someone out there who sends their heart out to you. Who is praying that you're still here. Who understands.

If you are still reading this and you need someone to talk to, just respond and I will give you my contact info. From one mom to another, I am so, so sorry, and send you love and hopes of healing.

I fully understand your grieving over the loss of your loved one, it seems that death is the easy escape but you need to run the full course of your life on earth before you embrace death.
Yes extreme grief would seem to cripple you and renedr you unable to lead a normal life but there will come a day in your life where you wil be stronger emotionally and spiritually and you would feel how stupid it was of you to contemplate ending your life.

Please listen to me brother... I speak from experience.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have a daughter who I could not bare to lose. I too feel like I am going through the worst year of my life and it will never end. The events over the last year have caused me to develop a panic disorder complete with:
chest pains, choking fear of dying, feeling like I'm going crazy, hot flashes and or chills, lightheadedness or dizziness, loss of appetite, nausea, numbness or tingling, pounding heart, trembling. I wake up i the middle of the night and feel that death is standing over me.
I'm 48, so I know some of this is due to the beginnings of menopause, however the recent actions of someone my husband and I trusted to care for our daughter over the years has pushed me close to the edge. I can't afford a therapist, so I'm trying meditation and vitamins.I don't want to take an anti-depressant, or anti- anxiety drug. I feel like I'm having a nervous breakdown and I pray that I will come through whole again soon. i hope that you too come through your loss whole again. If you think it would help read Loving-Kindness by Sharon Salzberg. Implore the Holy Spirit, the Bodhisattva who hears the sufferings of the world to help you.
I hope that you feel whole again someday.

Oh honey please don't give up! I have 2 children and I have no idea what you are going through, I could only imagine! I know that God only gives you no more than what you can handle and I am not really sure what that means because I don't know who could handle something like that! All I know is one day you will be with your baby and she will be there with a big smile on her face! Life is to short for all of us to be having such a hard time! I am really realizing that now. I've been sick for almost a year now and been feeling like crap and it is now giving me paniic attacks! After reading your story I feel foolish for having my stupid attacks! Maybe God just wanted me to get intouch with you somehow! I will be praying for you! Nothing will ever make or take the place of your baby, but something will one day make you smile again! Good Luck and God Bless you and your family!

I have just read your posting and ask you to please never wish for the ultimate end to panic disorder. You may have heard all these comments before as I have personal experience, I understand your statements. There are many natural methods and
retraining' ' your mind to help and overcome panic. It is a cruel disorder and often misunderstood; we are told to just snap out it. Life events often trigger these episodes and then we are on a whirlwind to survive.
Ending it all is not what one really wishes but true help and understanding.

There are supplements
*gentle exposure to the situations that trigger a panic attack
*It is best to avoid a lot of caffeine and stimulants, wine and alcohol.
* Baths: Hot then cold for the days that are very difficult and singular note oils for your bath
*Lavender, orange bergamot, rose
Tea also several times a day, especially Valerian and camomile to drink several times a day.

I stay away from morbid television , graphic reality shows and anything that may trigger more of the thoughts we deal with.

There needs to be 'someone ' you can talk to and it does not have to be a professional while this is important also. Someone to whom you may vocalize these feelings and will always be there for you. I found Pastoral counseling in any city to be very wonderful and it is free or with a donation. I have wished to just spirit myself away when the panic attacks are at their worst, but please know you are NOT alone and I am sure of this fact.

There are many good supplements and homeopathic chinese medicine physicians who have help of many kinds.I am struggling myself right now with horrible panic episodes and know the great distress and lack of understanding that one faces, Please look further and seek a free or paid person to speak with. I care about you and you may reply to me if allowed.

I will keep you constantly in my thoughts and prayers each day asking you to look for the Blessings however small in your life. I hope my comments have not offended you in any way and send you this message our of true caring.
