Well I had a panic attack yesterday morning and I took a pill to help relax me only it made me really tired and spacey (usually doesn't) but I managed to calm down last night and I feel like i'm going thru the whole thing again today with horrible anxiety that won't take a break.  It's making me really depressed which i know only makes the anxiety worse.  Right now i'm trying to watch tv to district me which only helps sometimes and I'm waiting on my son to get back from his Dads house.  My son is four so he usually distracts me and makes me happier.  I'm going through a period AGAIN where it feels like I will feel like this forever and it's scaring me even more.  I just want to be able to relax and feel normal again.  Usually weekends are harder for me because I'm used to having a structured work day and work tends to distract me a bit but now I'm afraid i will feel like this at work tomorrow too.  I don't even feel like a real person sometimes.  I guess i needed to rant about it just to do something, I know many of you have felt this way or worse.  Some moments seem like they can't get any worse but I know they could and I'm just not thinking clearly.  Please tell me that i'm gonna feel better soon?!
 
Thanks

You will feel better. Trust me. I've been through it and so has everyone else here probably. I was having panic attacks and going through extreme anxiety almost every single night. It was horrible to live through. I thought I was going to die from a heart attack, that's how bad it was. Guess what!! I've been doing better with the help of some meds and although I still go through panic attacks...they are not so bad or as often anymore. You take care and you will come through this with flying colors!! As always, you can rant here anytime.

Hugs

Aurora is right, and you can do like I do with your spare time. . . Just structure it yourself so you always have something to do when feeling anxious. I sure hope you get to feeling better soon!

Thanks guys, you are always so helpful.  :-)    Maybe I should get a new hobby besides reading although I don't know what that would be.  I'm not real motivated right now to do the housework I should probably do. lol

I had a weekend like you did. My problem is the palpitations and they're back. I hate this, too, and I wonder if I'll ever be free of this fear and watching. Watching everything my body does....You do need to structure your weekends. I think that's what is missing. You mentioned that you don't really have a problem with week days. So, that's good!

Hi Melbe,

Glad to hear you are feeling better.  And yes anxiety does get better but you will have your high anxiety moments and  know they will  decrease if you can get your mind onto something else.

A Hobby.........great idea........send me some ideas too when your brainstorming.  I need a hobby. 

Hugs

Well today was kind of rough... i think i took a step backwards because last week I had seemed to be making some kind of progress.  Like you mentioned Aries I am watching myself, everything i do or feel and it stinks.  I need to get out of that habit again.  When i get this much anxiety i can barely eat and i've lost 20 pounds since Jan which isn't bad for me but just an unhealthy way of doing it.  Thanks Aries, Unhappy32, Kitt and everyone else.  Kitt I haven't really thought of a hobby yet, maybe i should start thinking about that instead of thinking about thinking about anxiety (if that makes sense)  :-)   Hopefully tomorrow will be a great day for all of us.

I'm having a really bad morning and I have to go to work.  Anxiety panic attacks non stop and I'm even getting sick because i'm so scared.  Does anyone else ever get that scared?  I just can't think clearly.  Please help... i'm having a rough time talking myself out of this.  :(

Can you try taking a 1/2 pill to help stop this anxiety? Just a thought~ Hope you get feeling better soon.

Well I made it to work and i'm trying the positive self talk Nikki.  I think i'm just really hard on myself and have no self esteem.  Thank you so much for your posts, they mean the world.  I'm sure you've been told this many times Nikki but you're soooo sweet, you too Nanners.  I did take a whole pill and it's made me a little out of it but I can't complain about that.  Now I'm off to try to beat this the rest of the day.  wish me luck.
