Is it 'normal'
« on: June 13, 2014, 11:16:01 PM »

...not to be able to function the day after a panic attack?  I find that if my attacks are bad enough, I'm exhausted and can barely even speak almost the entire next day.  This is kind of a new development for me; it's only happened two or three times. 

Tia!

Hi Jols...

It is very normal not to be able to function properly for a day or two after a panic attack, and I certainly fall into that category.

Panic attacks expend a great deal of energy, as a lot of adrenaline is pumped through one's system.  Even a normal person having a "fight or flight" response to a perceived threat, will require rest after such an episode.  A panic attack is nothing more than this "fight or flight" response, but no actual physical threat exists.

As always, the very best to you, Jols!...  Chuck :grinning-smiley-003:

I'm the same way. It'll take a couple of days for me to feel back to somewhat normal. Lots of tiredness afterwards also.

Absolutely. I have to recover after a panic attack. It is definitely not easy on the body or the mind. Just take your time with it.
