Panic attacks

I am not sleeping well. I keep waking with my heart pounding.
And sometimes during the day I feel faint.

It has been 3 weeks since my 11 yr. was diagnosed with diabetes.

The first week she was in hospital. The second week I was so busy trying to do all the insulin shots, blood tests, food menus, that I wasn't able to think about anything else.
The third week it all seem to sink, in and I am having major problems coping...

I hope the fourth week brings acceptance and I can move forward...:nerv2:

Oh, I hope so.

I think you should check with your own doc about an anti-anxiety drug. All of the things people here have said will help you also, but I know from past experience that when you are panicking, it is just TOO HARD to get your mind calm enough to listen to yourself, and try to stop panicking. It is a vicious circle.

Call your doc today, so that you AND your daughter have an easier adjustment period with this. Just be sure and wean yourself off of it, as you adjust and relax about the situation.

I wish I had gotten something to help, several times in my life.
