Really trying to hold on.....
« on: March 06, 2013, 07:04:55 PM »
I have been panicked all day and this is driving me crazy, wonder if I'm having a mental breakdown, I have been twisting my words a lil and when I type I'm messing up big time. I'm really scared. Please tell me someone else has had panic attacks lasting all day, my heart rate has been over 100 bpm all day long. I'm scared to see what my blood pressure is like. So, so, so, scared, I can't break down my babies need me.

you are living your life anxiously day in and day out.  this happens when we live this way.

get your kids to bed.  then take a nice long bubble bath.  If you would like, have a glass of wine.  provided it isn't contraindicated with any meds.


this I will say....   I am not a panic attack person.  however when living like  B-;, I would have days that were as you describe.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Pure panic attacks can last for awhile.  But you are having intense anxiety.  A trick a therapist told me to try once was to clench my fists and tense everything like I was going to scream and either actually scream, or just scream in your head "STOP". 

Also try focusing on an object.  Really focus, like your life depending on remembering every little detail of that object.
