30 years ago you probably would have been given shock treatment and lots of schizophrenia meds but things are better now

there are far more serious things you can have, asthma, cancer, heart trouble, panic attacks are only a minor problem, you obviously need to stay on your meds

Hi Sandie222

Welcome to HW you will find great support and friendships here. PA can be awful but try talking yourself thru them. Tell yourself this is a panic attack...It can not hurt me...I will not fight it let it run it's course and do some very deep breathing and keep talking to yourself or think of something that makes you very happy. Each time you do this the panic attacks will get easier for you to control by you and with your meds. I hope this helps hun and please keep posting so we all know how you are doing.

Yes derealization is very common-"the feeling of being separated from your boady-feeling od things being unrea" Yup had it, I think is a coping mechanism that our brain kicks out-weird, but harmless. Now my question to you is you said you were off your med for 3 weeks? s that correct? Did you gradually decrease or did you just stop? What are you taking? My guess is you did not forget you were having a PA you just got scared and thought what if its real this time? Am I right? Meditate-Pray-Breathe-Excercise and follow others advice on this forum-it's a great place to be!
God Bless

Harry and many others pointed me to books and gave me advise on Panic attacks. Now maybe there is something I do not know but after practicing what they gave me I find Panic attacks are very manageable. You let them happen but you do not give them control. Sarahp gave me the advise that has basicaly taken care of them. She told them (the P attacks) "go ahead and kill me I am sick of you ruining my life" It worked for her and it sure worked for me. I just made myself sit in a chair and waited for death. I pretty sure I'm still here. Everyone got easier and easier. I talk to them like a live enemy and tell them to kiss my A--, I don't have time for you.

The first ones where very frighting but now I don't give them the time of day and I get very few. I don't even stop what I'm doing now. Harry is right, it's time to get grip on PA there are much worse things in life.

I've not see one person that when they worked on them they did not make Progress. It takes effort as does everything.

Hi Leahbeans yes I stop taking my meds w/o doing it gradually I guess thats why it came back so strong. I;m taking PAXIL 30mg I just hate the feeling of unreality is so frustrating and scary but I still get up and go to work and do what i have to do even if I feel anxious and scared. thanks for the advice.
