    Kelley,
    Thank you for writing about your experience. I was beginning to wonder if there was anyone else out there who, like me, is a widow with health problems and anxiety, I too have experienced the kind of panic attacks that you described. The symptoms of my autoimmune disease were so much easier to handle when my husband was alive. I could keep the anxiety under control because he was lovingly at my side. A recent frightening ER visit (low potassium-dehydration) has made me determined to take action to get as healthy as I can. I hope you find your way to better health too. I really wish there was a support group for widows\widowers who are dealing with chronic illnesses along with their grief.
