Hello all,
 
It's been a long time since I posted here. I am bipolar and suffer with panic disorder as well. My anxiety has increased bigtime as we are waiting to find out if my Mom has cancer. Yesterday I forgot my clonazepam at home so at work I had a 4 hour panic attack; it just would not go away. It was very hard to breathe....and it was like I forgot how to cope without the med. I tried drinking lots of water, which actually did seem to help at the end...I tried deep breathing but that was so difficult because I felt like I was suffocating.
 
Anyway, wanted to reach out and say although I don't post here often I think of you all feeling what I am feeling.

Does anyone else find anything else works for them when a panic attack occurs????
 
Take care,
Mogs

If my mom was going to possibly be diagnosed with cancer, I'd be waaaaaaaaaaaay into a panic state also! I'm glad you're here now. I'm sporadic myself, but know that HW is a safe place to come! Take care and I hope your mom is well!

Hi all,

My panic attacks have subsided for now, which is good. My mom is still weak from the biopsy and she has had a fever for a couple days so we're worried about infection, but my sister is taking her to the hospital today.

This and the bipolar board have both been a huge support and comfort, so I truly thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Bracing also for yet another med change for my bp so that isn't great timing, but I will just have to get through it.

Anyway, hope you are all well. Oh and the meditation idea is great, I have a book that I haven't read on it yet, so I will get into that. I also need to get back to doing my yoga so those are helpful ideas! Thanks!
