It sounds like you are having a bad anxiety attack. I've had a lot of experiences with these. Most people will tell you to try deep breathing. Sometimes that does help, but with me I find that if deep breathing calms me down, I'm just upset again 10 minutes later. I think sometimes you just need to ride out the anxiety attack and let it take its course. It's ok to cry and let everything out. Just find someplace you can be by yourself and scream your lungs out if you need to. You will probably be very exhausted when it's all over so get some sleep. If it's lasting for a very long time, then you might need to take something to calm you down. I don't know if you have any sedatives in the house, but benedryl is very sedating. If you can manage to calm yourself down to a reasonable level, try to distract yourself to prevent a relapse of hysteria. Lots of times I try watching comedies, laughter really is the best medicine in this case.

i dont know maybe. It's like i cant handle any problem. my mind creates a lot of thought, i get overwhelmed and confused. Yeah i wish i could scream but here it's almost midnight and i cant do it. Brathing is not helping at all. i think i should visit a counselor bcause this is happening more often. I dont have any sedatives, but if i cry enough i will get exhausted and i'll fall asleep. the problems will be there when i get up tomorrow morning, so maybe i'll have another attack soon.

Bluetears... I 've been where you are right now... crying, crying and not being able to stop ... seemed like days on end... not being to catch my breath... having terrible thoughts , scarry thoughts... very dark thoughts.... Crying is ok... but when we can't stop , it is a sign that we need some help. I think you are wise in wanting to see a counsellor. Your first step... first thing tomorrow morning... is to call your doctor... if you don't have one ... get to a clinic... I think its important for you to see someone who can prescribe something.... for the time being.... and refer you to a counsellor.
Can you remember what triggered the crying... was it one particular incident or has it been building up? Would it help for you to talk to me about it. ? We are all here for you . Right now I am concerned about you getting through the night. If the breathing isn't helping then maybe continuing to talk to me or continuing this thread would help keep you focused on doing something through this night. I have an email if you would prefer to use it. I am here to listen . I'm not much of a sleeper so I will check up on you through the night.
write to me... or write it down in a journal... tears and all. Wrap yourself up in a big old warm comforter. If this was a little child in front of you , sobbing uncontrollably... so hurt and broken... what would you tell this little one. Inside of you is that little child... try to comfort it... say to it what you would say to another hurt little soul.
We will takle ONE problem at a time. Forget the rest... tonite your task is to get through the night and try to comfort your inner child.
Tomorrow... your task is to call your doctor and check in with this Healing Well family that cares for you and wants to see you get better. You are overwhelmed right now... nothing seems possible then.
So go get your comforter , wrap yourself up... and let yourself cry,
Bluetears... my heart and thoughts are with you... I will check in on you a little later on tonite. Stay with us ok... Now if you happen to fall asleep... honey that is a good thing!!! rest! and we'll talk tomorrow.
Hugs to that little soul inside you and the adult that is trying desperately to make it through all this hurt.
Love and prayers

blue tears,

Good Morning and a warm welcome to you. 

You've come to the right place to find people that have a good idea of what you're going through. We are here to help you and support you.

Talking usually helps with anxiety and depression.   Share your feelings with friends, family, on here are all good ways to work through the anxiety.

Relaxation techniques: Try deep breathing, muscle relaxation, visualization (imagining peaceful scenes), and/or listening to soothing music.

Realistic self-talk: While we can't always control what happens to us, we can always control what we say to ourselves. It's important to keep things in perspective. Talk to yourself in reasonable ways. Ask yourself "how likely is my fear?" Remind yourself that you have coped before during other challenging times. Don't just dwell on the negative but consciously look for things you can appreciate every day.

Make an effort to stay focused on what's happening now. What do you see, hear, and smell? How do you feel? Truly be 'present' in the moment! That will help you keep the anxiety down.

Please know I understand completely what your going through. Therapy and medication have worked well for me. You will read in the threads many ways others deal with their depression and the anxiety that frequently comes with depression.

I am glad your going to see about counseling.

Keep talking to us.

Kitt
