  Panic Attack Today
 
I have recently started experiencing Panic Attacks but as yet not whilst driving.
 
       Mine seem to occur when I am at work ,shopping ,out with friends or at the cinema.
 
       I have kept away from medicines and am trying various alternative methods.  
 
       At the moment when an attack arrives I find a quiet spot , take deep breaths and visualise something good that has happened     in    the past or a really warming experience.
 
       This seems to help me,let me know if it is of any benefit.
 
       I am still reading up on this subject and trying different methods.
 
       If I come across anything else I will let you know.         
 
       Stay positive and good luck

  Hi Kitt
 
           Many thanks for your interest
 
           I joined your site after coming across it whilst researching for ways to deal with my panic attacks.
 
           These attacks started earlier this year, caused,I think from a bad period at work I went through during last December.
 
           They seem to follow the same pattern i.e. shortness of breath then heart palpitations.
 
           Hopefully, reading your posting may provide some ideas to tackle this problem.
 
 Best wishes

Sloop,

Welcome to the forum! Your tactic of finding a quiet place to calm yourself during an attack is a really good. Sometimes it's hard to get into that calming frame of mind, but don't let that discourage you. As with all our efforts to cope with anxiety, sometimes a method works better and sometimes the same method can feel less effective.

I will sometimes talk out loud to myself saying things such as "I'm all right. This has happened before, and it can't hurt me. I am safe. This is anxiety and it can't kill me." The speaking aloud helps me to prove to myself that I can breathe, that my lungs are getting air.

Good luck!
