54. Had one about a year ago
Edited on Thu Jan-05-06 03:03 PM by puerco-bellies
I was at my desk and thought I was having a heart attack. I went to the doctor and he diagnosed a panic attack and handed me a few xanax and a script for same. I took one that day and did not notice a thing. The next morning I woke up still with tightness and pain in my chest so I took the day off and popped another xanax. By the end of the day I was shopping and bought some pretty nice gifts for all of my closer friends.. I haven't had a panic attack or a xanax since.. :-)
