  • I have had sporadic panic attacks since I was in my early teens. They don't necessarily occur during the holidays but whenever I start feeling stress I get them.

  • No because we don't do much. A simple celebration with my girls and my husband.... no extended family stuff.

  • It's my policy. When we moved away from the "extendeds", I knew I wanted the holidays to only be about my family for my girls....

  • Yes it's because of the stress of the holidays,lack of sleep,shorter sunlight hours and not enough time for me. But I breathe through it.

  • Sorry, that was my out loud voice. I love my immediate family more than life itself. *Smile.* My extended family gets a little complicated especially around the holidays, when the world tells you everything's supposed to be picture perfect and it definitely isn't.

  • Stressed out yes- panic attacks no. But I could see how it could do that to people prone to getting them.
