Hi,

I'm new to this, very simply put, I just lost my job - I have a home, family, my oldest girl about to go off to college - this couldn't have happened at a worse time. I got the bad news on Saturday, and have been a complete mess ever since. Saturday and Sunday I was shaking and trembling, all day, all night. I've had hot flashes, I'm always in a prickly sweat, I haven't eaten at all and I've been throwing up at jsut the sight of food. My heart races - sometimes I feel better (like now... now that i'm writing) and sometimes I can't stand to be in my own skin - like this morning , watching my kids go off to school. I know it's temporary, I know better days will come, etc, but that doesn't help any when I'm in a pnic, jsut trying to BREATHE. The effort jsut to function is taking away from the effort I need to be doing to find a new job - I'm still updating my resume! but every time I start, I have another anxeity attack. Little things help - putting away dishes, etc, anything simple that i can feel that I've at least accomplished SOMETHING, but I need a way to cope. ANy ideas woul be appreciated - breathing eercise, mantras, anything. Needless to say, I also lost my health insurance (it's not even good to the end of the month), so I have no way to get to therapist. Hopefully, as I get more focused, some of this shall pass, but please, any suggestions?

Tom
