Thank you everyone with your kind replies tongue
I am sitting at work today and it has been one panic attack after another. I have gotten nothing done and am afraid to drive home. The drugs are not working, tea is not working and neither is distraction. It is hard to remind ones self that all these heart flutters and spinning heads are survivable and that in fact you have survived them many times in the past.
 
Maybe it is because I only got 3hrs of sleep last night or just because my brain decided to go on overload today but it is making me question my sanity. It is so hard when your brain overrides all of your previous coping mechanisms. Hopefully I can get this all to calm down soon so I can get some work done and go home.
 
Thanks for listening,
Sarrah


In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

Any possibility in going home early? I know when I don't sleep well, I pay for it dearly. Actually missed work today becuz I didn't sleep well at all lastnight and that always makes me feel sick and anxious. I hope you can get out early and go home and try to relax. (((HUGS)))

I know that feeling only too well. Its horrible. Its like just when you think you've coped with it your back to square one again. I didnt have much sleep last night a got a few slight, em, threats of one but nothing too serious thank God.
I hope you get some kip tonight! (I hope i do for that matter....)

I am sorry your having a lousy day. Can you look at the clock and know it is only a few more hours and your out of there.  Then push every thing from you mind except work.  Work as hard as you can and before you know it  you will be on your wy home?

I am like Nanners, if I cannot sleep and I have to go somewhere pright and early I get physicially ill.  I will have hand tremer and tears and my brain won't engage. 

Do you have any med to help with sleep.  A good night's sleep will do wonders.

Hugs

Oh how I know that feeling... When I haven't slept.. someone could ask me my NAME and I wouldn't be able to answer them.
I'm not one to give advice as I am not good at coping with anxiety , or flashbacks etc... but maybe if you tried getting through the next five minutes... just five minutes at a time.
I know when all hell broke loose with my children's flashbacks and panic attacks, nighmares, I would have to take it.. one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time , and somedays, one minute at a time.!
Hang in there Sarah... the day WILL end , and you will go home and have a good nights sleep tonite.

I'll tell you a little story that might make you laugh. When I was little and I'd done something I wasn't supposed to do,my mother had a habit of making me sit in front of the clock for 5 minutes or 10 minutes... however long the "crime" warranted.
I would sit there, and sit there, and sit there... and say ''Can I go now... My mom would say is your 5 minutes up... I would say, no it isn't.... well, then you'd better stay right there young lady!"
What she didn't tell me, and what I didn't realize until I was much older... is that she had STOPPED the clock.! While I sat waiting for the darn thing to move, mom would get at least half an hour of peace and quiet. !!! LOL Smart woman my mother.!
Love and prayers to you dear Sarah.

Well I made it to the docs today and will be on Zoloft and klonipin (did not like xanax) so maybe, just maybe I will be able to even out and control this demon.

Today is a much better day so far except for the pain (I have severe endometriosis and scare tissue from surgeries). Lets hope it continues and many more follow it
