It's not fair.
« on: April 25, 2014, 04:06:11 AM »
I had a really good day today.
Had a good night.

Now it's past bedtime and I'm up trying not to let myself spiral into a panic attack.

Bad day? Anxiety. Good day? Anxiety. That's not fair. :(

Any advice on now to stop a panic attack in it's tracks? I'm trying to distract myself, but it's really not helping.

Ride the wave...adrenaline will die out if you don't feed it with more panic.  Just like a roller coaster.

I feel you.  I am in a similar situation.  All we can do is hang on.  And, no, it is not fair at all. :(

I found that after I would go to bed my panic would flare up. I have not had an actual panic attack in a few years now, but when I was having them regularly I would do my breathing, and also tense every muscle I could for as long as I could, then release. But mostly I would remind myself that panic was in my head.

Google The Alexander Technique and see if a teacher is in your area, that really, really helps too.
