First, let me welcome you to the forum, you've come to the right place! Also, let me say, congrats on your new baby! If there has EVER been such a wonderful reason to address your anxiety...it is that, so you can truly enjoy your new miracle!
The very best thing you can do is get yourself into some talk therapy and look into CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), which are both wonderful, non-pharmaceutical ways to address the anxiety and panic attacks. The best place to start is a psychiatrist. Ask your PCP for a referral to a p-doc who will be able to treat you in the ways you need...who will be able to give you an official diagnosis and formulate a plan.
It sounds as though you already have found a little relief in the fish oil, which is great. That, coupled with therapy, where you will learn coping techniques...will get you on the road to beating the anxiety. It doesn't happen overnight, it takes time, patience, and hard work to be able to harness the anxiety, but it is doable. Even if you were not nursing....and were able to take a medication, the therapy aspect is still very important...because it gives you the TOOLS to deal with anxiety and panic.
Lastly, know that you are far from alone in this battle. There are many of us who live with this every day, and there are millions of success stories. Please share with us as much as you are comfortable with, this is a wonderful resource in addition to the therapy...as just reading about others' experiences is priceless.
Glad you found your way here...hang in there, it will get better. Read More At : ...
