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.

If you are having panic attacks, stay away from caffiene in any form. I find that is a BIG trigger for me when I am stressed and will quickly put me in panic attack mode! Also, if you can, lay down on the bed for just a couple of minutes and talk to yourself saying, "It's OK....this will pass, it is OK....this will pass. I am OK."

Good luck to you and my your dear daughter get this diabetes thing under control.
