Stop the attack, break the circle, do something relaxing, listen to music, stay in the moment and remember you are OK. NOthing bad is going to happen to you.
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Yesterday is gone forever, tomorrow is not yet here and Today is really all we ever have. We may have the memories of yesterday but it is over and so we do not need to continue to live in it. Well tomorrow is not here so it might be nice to set goals for tomorrow, or dream of what we would like it to be, but again it is not here yet so we can not live in it until it gets here. So we can only live in the here and now of Today. What a wonderful gift.
Believe in yourself and kick the panic attack to the curb.

My problem is crying too, and trying to believe in myself that I can do this but it is scary. It takes lots of practice, but I promise you are safe and you will pass through this. No more beating yourself up. Anxiety is not something we ask for but we do have to learn to live with it. Remember you have anxiety, it does not have you.
Gentle Hugs my friend.
Julie you can DO this, you can get THROUGH this. i know it seems dark and impossible when you are in that panic state of mind, but it WILL pass, keep reminding yourself that it has to end. i think you should maybe speak to your doc about med increase or change? whatever happens, know that you are going to get through this and come out stronger in the end. we all fight this horrible battle daily- we understand. keep us posted, you are in my prayers-
