I should know what a panic attack is by now, but tonight I've had a doosy.

Besides all the med changes, I've been working like crazy getting the house together to sell it, looking at what we'll do then, just got power back on after a blackout of 28hrs so dealing with the insurance company over food spoilage, running around today, have a child going to hospital tomorrow, and worrying about juggling the other 2 along with them carrying on because they're so bored.... so a lot's been stressful.

I started feeling funny so went to have a shower felt frozen like when you have a fever, numb fingers and very scared. I was then scarying myself thinking maybe I've blanked out and hurt my kids or something. I got out the shower and took some valium and things started to calm down, it's now midnight and I just feel so scared and alone. The kids are ok and I use to worry about what would happen to them if I died now my fears turned it against me by making me fear (to the point of panic) that I'm the one that's will hurt them.

I hate panic so much. I'm still early days into my new med so I can't judge yet how effective it is. I know I'm under a lot of stress, enough easily to cause a panic attack but anxiety always wants you to think it's more. sad

Seems like your under enuff stess to kill a horse. Hang in there and remember its "only" A/P. youve been through it before and you can do it again. Remember we are here for you.

Thankyou, I guess I just want to be reassured I'm not going crazy. My mind seems to know when I get use to one sort of attack and it changes tactics for maximum panic attack results.

Hope you are feeling better this morning. I too had a doozy of a panic attack last night. I haven't had one in about a week and it scared me too. As soon as it got dark I starting freaking out and got really scacey and felt funny my body also felt frozen and paralyzed by so much fear. Hang in there and remember like Lyn said it's just the darn A/P.

hugs,
Georgia

Thanks, I hate that spacey feeling that's when I start thinking I could have just blanked out and done something awful without knowing it.

I woke up today in a panic so went and got the valium straight away. I only took 2.5mg as I'm tired anyway, but may increase it up to 5mg if I need to take more later. My pdocs on holidays for another week and I know she'd be saying "If you need the valium take it and take it regulary not when it's too late"

Hubby took my son to the hospital for his tests, my eldest is at school and my youngest is at preschool. A day yesterday morning I couldn't wait for 'quiet time' now though I don't need the quiet (too much time for my private p/a it to scare me). eyes

Has anyone here read the book Living with It?
