I don't know why it's been so bad lately.. but this Lucinda Bassett program seems to have made my panic worse...
 
I started having the worst panic attack ever last night for no reason while I was laying in bed.  I was just FREAKING out and just got overwhelming sensations that I just wanted to crawl out of my skin.. couldn't breathe... couldn't handle anything around me... heart was racing... UGH
 
I am so frustrated with everything... I just can't stand this disorder.  It's so depressing.
 
I don't get this Lucinda Bassett and her panic attack session... she says to find out what's really bothering you that caused the panic attack..
 
well NOTHING was bothering me... these panic attacks HAPPEN.. there is no reason.. that makes no sense.
 
You would think someone who suffered with panic attacks for supposedly so many years would understand that but I guess not. 
 
I've cut out all caffeine and sweets and started to exercise a little bit and it doesn't help.
 
Why the hell can't I just be cured of this?
 
I'm just feeling so down all the time and I don't know what to do about it..

Twiggy..I'm sorry to hear that you are having attacks like these..it's never easy and pregnancy must be making it harder still.  I've never heard of Lucinda Bassett so I can't help out with that..what exactly does she advocate??
 
I know that there are three kinds of Panic Attacks:

1) Spontaneous (Uncued) Panic Attacks
Are not associated with a situational trigger and appears to come 'out of the blue'. They can occur during periods of relaxation or when sleeping.

2) Situational (Cued) Panic Attacks
Occur either in anticipation of a situation or in a situation where an attack has previously been experienced.

3) Situationally Pre-disposed Panic Attacks
While being pre-disposed to having a panic attack in a certain situation, the person may or may not have an attack either in the situation or immediately afterward.

It sounds to me that you are having a spontaneous one there, and they really can't be picked to pieces for clues, they happen IMHO, because they can.

Sorry I can't be of more help, I guess just try not to fight the anxiety when it happens, let it roll over you...(easier said than done I know)..and breathe.  I often take a warm bath to get rid of that itchy skin feeling, and have a good cry about how depressing it all is and then I come along here and vent..so keep venting sweetie!!! I hope tonight is a better night for you.

(((hugs for you and bub))))

Twiggy,
 
I'm so sorry that you are having such a difficult time, it's so awful when panic strikes out of the blue...and it does!  I've had many, many panic attacks that have come for no reason, so I guess I don't understand why the program you are using wants you to figure out what is bothering you at the time.  I do hope that you will start to feel better soon, meg gave you some good advice in trying to allow the panic to just be there and concentrate on your breathing.  It's not easy at first, but it does help over time.  Keep posting here too!

Hi Twiggy,
 
I"m sorry that you are having to deal with this, especially while pregnant.  This should be a happy and exciting time for you.  As has already been, try to focus on your breathing and also try to think of a happy place for you while in the middle of the attacks (I know...easier said than done).  I also don't understand Lucinda Basset's (and have never heard of her) program of trying to figure out what's triggering the attack, it doesn't make sense to me.  Keep posting Twiggy and we'll help you through this.  We care about you!
 
Take care and lots of (((((hugs)))) coming your way,
Wen

Twiggy,

I am so sorry you're struggling right now. It does sound like you had a very intense attack, and I'm sure that made a lot of the techniques you usually try to fight it off just go kaput. As you point out, these things do come out of the blue, and that only adds to the sense of helplessness. Try to remember that this is just one skirmish that the anxiety seems to have won, but that it hasn't beaten you by a long shot.

I understand feeling that your home isn't a haven, but I do hope that feeling will pass for you (as it did for me). It's so important to have a place where you feel safe. If it's not home, or your entire home, could it be one room, or a single piece of furniture? Just someplace where you can remind yourself of how strong you are. Because you ARE; you've been strong in the past, and you will feel strong again. This is part of the vicious cycle that takes hold of us. Try to ride it out. Know that we're here for you.

Hey Twiggy, Percey Cat just gave some great advice I'd forgotten about.  Sometimes if my house is too much for me too feel safe in then I just bunk down in one room for the day, with food, DVD's, blankies, fluffy slippers and my cats.  It's ok to take a day out..several in fact.  Hope things are calming down for you, take care and have a lovely weekend x

Hey Twiggy.

You may have mentioned this in a previous thread, but did they take you off your meds because you are pregnant? Maybe this could be the problem?

I don't like the idea of "finding out what is wrong" either, some of us just have a broken switch, like a thermostat that can' regulate.

Dear Twiggy, my little Twins fan.  I have bought books and now don't ya all start throwing your books at me. Some are wonderful.  The Lucinda book seems to be triggering your anxiety and it is feeling to me like you are struggling with a tough school project and just can't get it right.

Mother Kitt would suggest to take the book and bury in in the bottom of a closet.  You have not failed the course sweetie it just is not the right therapy for you.

I have pitched some I bought right into the garbage can.  Some books are good but remember they are all written by a human and every person works through their mental health issues in their own way.  We are not all going to do well in the same program.

Lay down on your bed or the couch with a good old fun read book and read to relax.  No guilt allowed in this space.  It is your space.  Twiggy's corner.  This is where you can let go of everything for awhile.  Remember to stay in the moment.  Don't worry about the past, it is over, you don't worry about the future, it will get here soon enough so just stay in the moment of where you are and know that you are safe.

We are all sending hugs to you my dear friend.  Cover up warm tonight, it is going to snow.

Love ya sweetie
Kitt

I woke up in a panic attack this morning cuz I was 20 mins late for my appt to find out if I have gest diabetes and was going to skip it then started panicking cuz I thought I might die if I didn't go and get checked...

demented..

well I don't know if I have it or not but I took a nap cuz the three hour testing sucked..

thank you all for your kind words...

 

meg- I seem to have all three kinds of panic attacks at any given time blaaaaaah

june and alwaysanxious- I got myself out of a panic attack last night from doing some breathing exercises.. maybe I"ll have to try this claires books

lyn- I'm just so dang frustrated and sick of this disorder... I KNOW i'm preggo but still... why can't I have this picture-perfect pregnancy of other panic sufferers where their panic just DISAPPEARS lol

wen- I don't get the point of trying to figure out the cause of the panic attacks either.  I'm sure all of you have had a panic attack where you just couldn't pinpoint where it came from! UGH

percy- in the Lucinda Bassett thing she says "no place is a safe place"  and that "You are your safe person and there is no safe person either" well then THAT made me FEEL CRAZY and now I don't feel like I have a safe place and I wig out and UGH I think these tapes are doing more harm than good.

badgenetics- I'm still on my meds...

kitt- I feel like I keep messing up the dang lucinda program because you're supposed to do it EVERYDAY but honestly... I can't do it everyday because its so repetitive and I dunno.. makes me anxious...

I just am starting to remember all the times when I panicked as a kid and how I never felt comfortable anywhere even in my own house because my father would just SCREAM 24/7 like a drunken sailor about the dumbest things... and if he came through the door we'd (me and my sis) would run to our rooms and hide because you never knew what he was going to scream about this time.

Maybe that's where this comes from.

It feels better to be on here.. I shouldn't stay away dangit... I thought I'd try to focus on the program for a couple weeks but I just don't get it.. and I feel like I'm in math class in junior high and failing LOL

Twiggy,
 
I agree with Kitt, the Lucinda Bassett program may not be the one that is right for you.  I like Claire Weekes too, her books saved me, literally.  And you are not crazy, most everyone with p/a has a place, usually home that is their safe place and also has a safe person, it just makes us feel better, theres nothing wrong with it, in my opinion, at least while we are in a bad place and working towards recovery, as long as we don't become so attached that we can't leave our safe person or place.  I'd give the program the heave ho for right now, it doesn't seem to be helping right now, and may be making things worse.  You hang in there sweetie, we are all here for you!

Twiggy,
 
I totally agree with Kitt and Junebug - toss the Lucinda Basset program.  WHile in the midst of a panic attack it's hard enough to focus on something to try to calm down, never mind trying to figure out what caused it.  Only after you have calmed down can you try to pinpoint it and even then it's not always possible.  I think the best thing for you to do is to get rid of it and not think of yourself as failing it - because you haven't.  Everyone responds differently to all types treatment - just think of it as trying meds, what works for others may not work for you.  Just like what works for you may not work for others.
 
As Percycat and Meg have said - is there a spot in your house that does feel safe to you?  If so, take some for yourself to re-group and just stay in that spot for as long as you need to.  My place is my bedroom, I have the TV, my books, my favorite blank and whatever else I need to feel comfortable.  Maybe something like this is wht you need to do and don't feel bad about it.  My hope is that you get into this comfortable, soothing place and can then enjoy the pregnancy - plan the nursery, think about what pretty little clothes you can buy, maybe even look at some baby catalogs if you have any.  Whatever makes you happiest and can soothe you.
 
I hope something here has helped and please continue letting us know how you are doing and as you well know, we will be here to support you in any way we can.  I'm glad that coming here has helped you.
 
Take care and many ((((((((((hugs))))))))) coming your way (those cute little hug fairies are flitting to you now with the hugs,

wen- the thing is is that I already have the nursery finished LOL now I'm working on a scrapbook. Well actually I'm working on three scrapbooks.. one for me and my fiane.. one for baby.. and one for the dogs (my dogs are my kids too!)

The only place I feel totally comfortable is in my living room on my couch... working on scrapbooks or watching the tube or what have you... but I want to be comfortable in BED too! ugh

Maybe I should start exercising and walking the dogs. Although it's like a dang blizzard outside today! Snow is everywhere...

where is spring?

lol

I'm sorry you are having to experience this.  I have not heard of the Lucinda Bassett program but I would say that if it causing you to feel more panicky, than put it away for a while or forever.  I was reading a book my therapist suggested and I just wasn't "getting it" and it was making me more anxious as I kept thinking it "should" be working as I was doing the exercises and writings and really trying to focus on the stuff and it made matters worse cause I just didn't understand it.  I finally just put the book away and went back to just dealing with the anxiety and not trying to figure out all the little reasons why I have the anxiety.  We may never know what causes your panic and my anxiety.  It sounds like to me that is part of what is happening with you.  The book is telling you to figure out what is causing your feelings of panic and it sounds like you are just working too hard at trying to figure out the cause when you have had them for a long time and they just "happen" for no reason.  Spontaneous is what I think they are and by trying to do the program you are putting added stress on yourself trying to figure something out that there is nothing to figure out.  Does any of this make sense?
 
I wish I could suggest something that I knew would work for you.  I can only tell you that you are in my thoughts and I hope things get better.
 
By the way, my favorite spot in my apartment is also my oversized, overstuffed, old couch.

Hi Twiggy,
 
I'm just checking in with you today to see how you are doing.  How are things for you?  I'm glad that you are doing something to help keep your mind occupied (scrapbooking).  Has the snow stopped yet?  I sure hope so, maybe getting outside for awhile will help you.  Hope you're having a good day.
 
Take care,
Wen

Hey Twiggy,  the sun is out here today and the temp is above 40, maybe walk the dogs.  I can't walk mine, she drags me.............what a poop she is.  She wants to run and she is 90 lbs of pure muscle.  We live in the country on a gravel road and road rash on my bod would not feell good.

I think if your comfortable on your couch, use it.  Just don't let it become the center of your life.  Venture out a bit.

It is so fun knowing someone that is going to have a baby.  Share with us what you feel comfortable.  We love to read what is happening with the little one.

You are ok, sweetie, this will get better.  Hugs

ocean- I understand what you're saying. I was trying to read into what may have been "bothering me" but it was aggravating me because there was no reason like you said. And with that book about your anxiety... I can understand being frustrated.

I feel better which is weird since I haven't worked at the program. But now I'm out 500 bucks on the dang thing which sucks because I didn't return it in time! UGH

Wen- the snow has stopped and it was kinda warm today.

kitt- have you ever tried a gentle leader or halti for your 90 pound dog? Casey pulls like she weighs 200 pounds but is only 45 pounds. The gentle leader bugs her so much that she walks like a perfect angel. She hates having stuff on her mouth and all it does is close her mouth if she pulls hard which she can't stand lol

hmmmm about the baby....

let's talk about SEVERE back pain here from size triple D's here! UGH what torture. lol

The lil one is having an EKG on her heart because I'm on Lexapro, and that's tomorrow morning, but that will be just fine.

Ummmmmm the baby kicks a lot, especially if I try to sleep on my stomach. I think she gets squished and angry LOL.... like HELP I HAVE NO ROOM! hahahah

I have stretchmarks EVERYWHERE it's embaressing... except on my stomach...*knock on wood* I mean everywhere.. my thighs.. ehm... bum LOL... um tatas.. and just argh

No amount of lotion works.... I'm telling you that right now! That's a load of hogwash that lotion will stop stretch marks.

Sooooooo what else would ya like to know kitt? LOL

Again I'm feeling better as long as I don't go near that dang program...

Twiggy,
 
I think you made a great choice with ignoring the program - you seem to be doing better by not using it and that's great.  I'm just sorry that it cost so much and you are out that money.
 
I'm glad the snow has finally stopped.  It's quickly melting away here, although we still have some pretty good sized snow backs, but I'm seeing more and more of my yard every day - YAY!!  It's supposed to be warm today - I love it!
 
I love to hear what the baby is doing and it's quite funny that she lets you know she's unhappy when you try to sleep on your stomach.  As far as those stretchmarks are concerned, there isn't much that will do anything for them - unfortunately.   Keep posting to let us know how things are going with the pregnancy and with the baby's EKG. 
 
Take care,
Wen

wen- I feel SO much better than I have tossed that program aside.  I'm having way less panic attacks now.  I put a radio in my room so I can feel comfortable in it again and it seems to be working.

I'm feeling better and the baby is punching and kicking me in the ribs and in my side and EVERYWHERE

I'm still in pajamas and it's 3:30 and the fiance wants to do something today (he's at the bank) but I'm LAZY lol

argh

Hey TG.whooooooooo hooooooooooo.  I am glad you gvae up on the work book.  Sometimes they just are not meant for some people.  I am not great with work books as they make me feel like I am "crazy" to have to sit and try to answer questions I know the answers to and my anxiety goes up.

I know there are many wonderful programs that use work books but I would like one at the 5th grade level.............. devil

Music is an extremely powerful form of expression. It combines both words and sound to deliver a message. Certain songs that one hears on the radio can trigger specific memories in one's mind. There is no doubt, there is a fervent connection between music and our feelings. Music you enjoy can be very therapeutic.

I love music.  Take care of that little one my dear friend.
Hugs

Twiggy,

That's wonderful that you're feeling so much better. It just goes to show that not every method works the same for every person.

And good for you for taking some down time for yourself. I love the idea of PJs at dinner time!

Does the radio make the baby any more active? I've heard that sometimes music will get the baby's attention (somehow) while it's still in the womb. Regardless, I'm sure the baby's doing better on music than on Lucinda B! :)

Hi Twiggy,
 
I'm just checking in with you to see how you and the baby are doing today.  I remember when I was pregnant mine all punch and kicked everywhere!!  At least she is an active little thing - LOL. 
 
I also like the idea of staying in your PJ's for the day, I also have days like that.  There are times that we just need that down time and it's okay to do that.  I'm glad that you have put a radio in your room and that it's helping you.  As Kitt said, there is a strong connection between music and our feelings.
 
Keep posting to let us know how you're doing.
 
Take care and (((((((((HUGS)))))))))) for both you and that baby,
Wen
 
ps - do you have a name picked out yet?
