Really bad day today...
« on: April 02, 2014, 11:37:33 PM »
Today seems to be one of the worst days in a while. I woke up early today because I had to take my wife for a small procedure. Had a coffee and was anxious waiting for her. I came home and took care of the dogs and had another coffee. Big mistake I think but it's too late now... I had to cook for her and after around 8 pm I feel like I have a panic attack every 30 minutes. Tons of symptoms from chest pain, fast heart rate, arm pains, head pain in the back when breathing(that's a new one), palps and everything imaginable. I am trying to calm myself down but my heart rate does not want to relax...

Sounds like reaction of your nervous system to a lot of stimulation. 

Wife at dr.
Awake earlier
2 coffees,
Making dinner to help her

Hope you find some calm.

I'm sorry you're having a crappy anxiety day.  Those are no fun at all.  But you're doing really well to not freak out and recognize that what you're having is indeed anxiety.  My girlfriend taught me something for panic attacks that helps me a lot - I breathe in for the count of five, then breathe out for the count of five, and just focus on that.  It does help when I get that runaway anxiety.

I hope your wife is doing well.

Thank you so much for your replies!!

Thank god it was a simple procedure, she is still in a bit of pain but a lot better. I think I need to stop drinking those stupid coffees and smoking and start drinking some tea for my own good. The breathing does help sometimes, I have to say tho that when my mind starts going nothing seems to help, even tho I know that it is anxiety. I have been to the doctors so many times that I think that if all those visits something happens, let it be.
