I felt the same way when I was having awful panic attacks everyday for months. I didn't have any IDEA that I could get better.
I was scared, and got on meds, and prayed to God. I started reading a lot. I'd go through a book a day for weeks, just to keep my mind off things.
I'd borrow the books from my sister and a week later would hand them back in a big pile.
Now I'm having trouble even getting through a book in a week LOL. Back to my old ways I guess!!!
I always am waiting for the moment I feel panicky, but now it's been 12 days since I've had a full blown panic attack.
That's a long time for me.
I draw a lot and paint as well to keep my mind off things and it helps. The most traumatic panic attacks are difficult to not think about
, as I still think about
the worst one I had a couple months ago and can't even talk about
the place up north where I had it. But I'm getting better.
I hope this helps.
