Has anyone ever tried to embrace their panic/anxiety attacks?
I find when I anticipate a sitatuon that fills me with anxiety, it makes me sick. I get so fed up of the anxiety, I just go face the dreadful situation just hoping I'll get a panic attack so I can see that it's not so horrible and also to get the level of anxiety down.
Every time I hope the attack comes, it never does. For me, hoping for the attack is a form of letting go of the control.
Like today for example, I went to get my hair cut. I so dislike going to get my hair cut cause I normally panic about being trapped while someone cuts my hair.
I was well over do for the cut and sat here today knowing I had to go. I went and instead of worrying I was going to have a panic attack, I hoped for one. I embraced my anxiety and of course I was so relaxed and was laughing with all the ladies in the salon.
Anyone else do this? This method has gotten me through some horrible situations
