I am a young unmarried lady sufering anxiety and panic attacks. It all statred when I was etermely angerly and there came the breathing problem. I’m on medication for almost a year now, which helps a bit. The faith I used to have is still in me, but at times I get doubtful and I don’t want to dissapoint Allah. I know He is ever listening sometimes late in answering duas but He is by my side. I’ve always been a moderate Muslim, but now I intend to better myself hence make dua to Allah to grant me long life to do many good deed that please Him so that I die when He is pleased with me. But I have become miserable from a bubbly personalty that those who once like my company actually feel bored.
