I know all of you can understand when I say, I'm sick of feeling like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Every time I have a panic attack it takes me a week to stop feeling hot, shaky, to start being able to eat again. I don't wanna do this anymore! I have this thing when I feel this way I hate being alone but I have to work so I come in every morning and am basically alone from 6 to about 8: 30.
it's torture.
 
I'm just tired of this, I hate it! I really thought I would be able to handle it better, well this really knocked me down off my horse!

I was wondering how long does it take for everyone else to calm down after a major attack, It takes me about a week of pure torture.

Daisy,

I think that depends on your definition of calm down.

I mean to where you can ignore the symptoms and go on with everyday life and still be able to laugh, it's not torture every moment.

Hmm well as far as calming down to some extent I woud say that lasts atleast a few hours but the ignoring symptoms and enjoying life that would definately be prolly a few days.

I'm not sure I've ever gotten back to enjoying life yet. Whether I'm having an attack, anticipating an attack, or one has just passed, it seems I don't really ever feel like my old self. I think it's worse for my family than for me... I'm not really much fun anymore. Then again, mine was brought on by major clinical depression, so that's always an underlying factor with me. My anxiety/panic is aggrivated by my job, so on work days, there is never any calm. I can definitely relate to the frustration though, Daisy... I hate it too. (((Hugs))),

Daisy, I am so sorry it takes you so long to recover from a panic attack, No you aren't alone. It sucks though that we have a predisposition to anxiety and we will always have it.

During my worst ones I would have anticipatory anxiety constantly,before and after a PA. It was almost self perpetuating and very terrible. Yeah they suck, but one needs to work through those anxiety triggers before you can start having more enjoyment than endurance of life. I still wake up many days feeling anxiety, but I have recognized that I have also had many successes recently in my recovery which also is self perpetuating and very empowering, as well.
I should have paid more attention in typing class!

hi daisy, i hope you are feeling better and im sorry it takes so long to recover from these darn things, but i agree with bear, not so sure that i can feel like myself at times. This evening im kinda in and out, which means i can sit here and be fine for a few, then get the feeling like im floating and my heart takes off nad i turn into some scared person that wants to run away......but we will make it through all these crazy symptoms and get rid of these things for good one day ;) take care
