I suffered from anxiety attacks for a couple of years and tried several different antidepressants. Finally, I went off of everything full time and just took Xanax when I felt an attack coming on. I used to think I was going to have a heart attack or a stroke. Now I have focused all of my worry on my 1 year old grandson. I am so afraid that something is going to happen to him, I am beginning to be afraid to be alone with him. I feel like I am going "off the deep end" now. I hate the feeling of being on antidepressants and would love to try something natural. I feel like I am so anxious that I am not spending the fun, quality time with my grandson that I should be. Could this new anxiety be hormonal?
