kat1825 Feeling insecure resulting in anxiety and insomnia


Recommended Posts

I have been feeling insecure ever since the company I worked at for 16 years closed down.  I am 52 and feel very insecure.  For two years now no sleep and daily panic attacks.  Help!

Have you taken any meds for the panic attacks and anxiety? If so how long? I was diagnosed with PTSD and generalized anxiety. I know what you are going through.
