It is a daily battle. I feel your pain, I really do. Talking with someone really helps. Therapy is a great aid in treating, or making the symptoms less of a problem. I am a strong supporter of it. When I started I did not think that I needed to talk to someone. I really thought it was something that I could beat on my own. I have come a long way, but it was therapy over the meds that really helped me.
I am a huge advocate for therapy! Therapy in combination with meds has helped me tremendously. I have no intentions of staying on my meds long term, but I will continue with therapy forever if I need too. It is really nice to be able to talk with someone about everyday stresses! Give it a try! You might be surprised!
Botcho is right I use this and my family as my therapy. To read others experiences try some ideas that have worked for others and see if they work for me. Just talking to people here who understand what we go through. Also family members or friends who are willing to listen and be objective not rude like the old saying just get over it. We know it's not that easy. I have learned when I am by myself and a panic starts to come on to challenge it and show it and yourself that you are not afraid of it or the way it makes you feel. In time my panics have become fewer and farther between and I feel a little bit closer to normal. Hope this helps you and remember were usually always here to talk to.
hey, i can relate to you. this time i got this really bad anxiety attack and also had to call the ambulance i also thought i was dying after that happened i,ve just had these really bad hest pains really bad!!! i also get these feelings with my breath i just feel like i have no air.and like you i hide it really good i get these mini attacks to but i just try to get busy or what i do is drink some water. my drs have also recomended therapy i just don't c it working though, i've had like 5 types of medications and nothing, what i do is try to keep busy but sometimes thats just not possible they recomende this book called"hope and help for your nerves" i haven't tried it yet but i just got recomended to it and iv'e seen the book reviews and it seems to help im going to buy the book so if you do 2 let me know how it works out.
heyo, i know what you mean like, my thoughts keep racing in my mind and it gets me really agitated and i start to panic and get depressed alot. it's really hard to keep those thoughts out and it's even harder to find someone to talk to.
recently i have been having panic attacks as well when i found out i could have them back in 99 yes i was using drugs but stopped found out i was diagnosed with G.A.D.i started with 3 vailuim a day and eventually moved it to twoand still trying to do it that way anyways i haven't had really any panick attacks untill recently i have 4 from what i counted one was caffien related which i found out the other was wen i stopped smoking took my meds after trying to fight the attacks. and after i woke i was all good now lately i was at a party and i didnt have no panick attack untill i was walking with my niece surprisingly that same morning i did not have a hangover which as much s i drank i should have anyways we were on our way to the store but... it wasn't a full blown attack it was more anxiousness than nay thing ranted i felt like i wanted to puke and didnt. as soon as i got to my nephiews i took ap ill and went to sleep an was good untill my niece left and got a little jumpy ya kow clammy and sweat again i walked it off and went to sleep woke up cool. now im back home and it seems now as if im constantly going to have an attack but same as befoer not a full blown one ya know i always have my meds by my side but.. so far the anxiety is not real bad but the anxious nes is there is thre nay one out there going thru the same thing if u are i would appreciate sum feedback that could help im thinking maybe they are b/c i stopped smoking but why are they kinda as not as bad which is good not complaining but how can one live like this it ***** i dnt drink much
I have these attacs and I can stop thinking about them but reading your comments make you feel grate :)
I have had several mini attacks today, I take xanax for them, but today after I took it it was like a head rush! My whole body started to feel hot and I got real shaky. Felt like my chest was going to blow up, very scary feeling. They have stopped now but boy am I wiped out. I haven't experienced that feeling before after taking my xanax, anyone else have that happen?
