Story by "Fredericka"

 

After hearing all of your stories I don't feel so alone anymore. I am 17 years old and for about 6 months now i have suffered from panic attacks. I don't get them all the time but i get them every so often and fear that they will come back in between. About 4 months ago I smoked marijuana with 2 of my close friends. Everything seemed find since I used to smoke every now and then without having any problems but that was all about to change because after having smoked that night i came home and felt as if i was going to die. I started feeling dizzy, losing my balance, dehydrated and lost. All of a sudden I forgot everything I was doing and felt like I was falling. Since that day I haven't been the same. I often "lose myself" when I start talking to people or when i am trying to explain something to them. Sometimes I'll stop in the middle of a conversation with someone and think "am i really saying this?".
