Us big, hard men suffer just the same as those little frail female creatures from Panic, Stress and we are almost as prone to depressiveness as the female counterpart as well.
If you look at a simple explanation of "panic attacks" (here is a link to a relatively typical explanation).... http://www.helpguide.org/mental/panic_disorder_anxiety_attack_symptom_treatment.htm you will probably be struck, as I was, by the impressively long list of symptoms, all of which can be overlooked or simply ignored as "unimportant"......Well, they're not!
After some 3 months of receiving all kinds of treatment and controls on my various ailments, heart, diabetic, it just seemed to me that there was something simple we (me and the specialists) had overlooked!
Light dawned when my wife Tina Concetta took it upon herself to brave my rage, and show me what she had suffered from - many years before - during a "low" period in her life.....Panic Attacks.
My first "trials" were immediate.....I hurried home and took one of these tiny tablets.
20 minutes later, I had my head spinning like a whirling dervish....30 minutes later I was in bed, and 6 hours later - I woke up!
I immediately called my Doctor and, in no uncertain terms, suggested what he may like to do with this stuff he had tried to kill me with.
His suggestion was simple.....take half a tablet...!
