    • I experienced this a year ago. I never thought I would be normal again. It took me about 4 months to feel normal but I had to keep up with all the life style changes to maintain the feeling. I took vit B12 and I had lots of fruits, vegetables and water. I had green vegetables and fruit juices and I exercise. I had to train my mind to focus on just one thing at a time and also positive things. It was very difficult for some persons to understand that I was not well and their reaction was very disapointing so I hid the details of my illness for a long time. I am now better but I have still maintained the life style changes as I would not like to go down that road again.

    • My friend shared a similar experience with me a few months ago and I was amazed that some of her symptoms were so similar to some health issues I have been having. I too have done some life style changes as I realize that my body was telling me that I could be heading in that direction.  

      Anonymous, thanks for sharing your experience and I hope you will continue to have good health. I am sorry that some people did not understand how ill you were, however when we are at our lowest God have a way of showing us the people who do not mean us well.

    • I’m not sure what to call what I went through about 10 yrs ago, but I do believe it was a nervous breakdown.  There were 8 deaths of family and friends that year, some being very close to me. I was having marital problems, financial problems, ect. I couldn’t take anymore. I started having panic attacks, and insomnia, depression all at once. I thought I was losing my mind, or dying, heck I didn’t know. I was having chest pains, and palpitations too. I went to my Dr. And got on some meds and it did take months but am doing OK now, off the meds now, except the one for insomnia, since I’m dependant on that one now. I wouldn’t want anyone to go through what I did. But I know it could happen to anyone. I believe it all comes down to stress.

    • You are so right mzd3 .....It is all down to STRESS ....I was doing so many things at the same time and My husband came home from overseas and got sick....he was so sick that he was helpless and I had to be at his side constantly while attending to the kids and going to my job...the feeling of tiredness was so overwhelming that it was so difficult to explain and my thoughts were allover the place. There were some mild panic attacks and I got very angry easily. When my husband was leaving for work and I was at the airport with him I could not control the tears ....It came like a flood. There were times I could not remember where I was going while going for my kids at school....My friend said she have been to school for her children and drove back out before school was over and found her self back home not knowing  why...Her husband kept asking if she was mad and she even kept asking her self if she was mad...She said she could not remember anything she did...She wrote checks to pay the bills and she could not find them. Her husband found them in the garbage. She went to the doctor and they did lots of test and found out that she had a central nervous system shut down. It took her months to feel better.... She did a lifestyle change and she went on vit B12 to help with the panic attacks. She was in the most stressfull situation as she had inlaws to deal with, her husband did not understand why she could not get along with his demanding mother who was critizing how she was looking about her son and her grand children. These are strict indians that live by their traditions where she had her inlaws around all the time watching how she did things even how she dressed.

    • Yes, I remember things like that. I would leave the house to go somewhere then change my mind  halfway there and turn around to head back, then I would change my mind again and turn around again. I couldn’t think straight those when I was going through that time. I couldn’t even function, it was horrible. It felt like I was going crazy. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. So glad its over, and hopefully never happens again.

    • I can definitely relate, but attribute everything to health problems for so many years.
