Our expert says:
Dont just accept panic attacks --- they can be very effectively treated with medication and CBT --- they shouldnt have been an excuse for leaving work, rather you should have used your access to medical aid to have them treated. And a CBT therapist could help you control the Depressions, too. Explore what FAMSA could advise, and the services through your nearest provincial hospital or clinic, or medical school. I don't at all like the sound of you taking ANY of "all those tablets" as they are probably doing no good and could well be making matters worse.
Dn't rely on a possibly careless GP to dish out tablets rather than effective treatments. GO and get a job --- ANY job, preferably one with medical Aid, and start working ( which will leave less time for you to feel miserable in ) and start real treatment and stick to it.
