    Could someone give me some input?

    Good evening! I am a 30 year old wife and mother. I used to come on here a few years ago but it's been a while. Matter of fact I actually got better for about a year and a half through much prayer and fasting. Meds didn't seem to really work for me. Now here I am again facing the same problem...anxiety and panic attacks ESPECIALLY when I drive. It seems to be worse towards the end of the day? And the problem is I commute about 40 minutes so it's really not idea for me lol. My heart starts racing and sometimes can hit 165 which scares the mess out of me. I KNOW it's a panic attack but I stress all day about the drive home or at night about the drive to work. I almost think I work myself into one thinking about it and checking it ALL THE TIME. Is there anyone else out there going through this and if so is there anyone that can give me some tips? I know the general stuff as I have dealt with this since the age of 12. I do have an appt w/ behavioral medicine this Wednesday but I DREAD the ride and even the appt. Thank you all for your input! God bless!
