i don't know what brought it on, but i have been having what feels like one long anxiety attack today, for the last 2 hours. worried about making mistakes, feeling hostile towards my sister for correcting me and forgetting we had a plan to clear out garage, not buying correct items at grocery store (my sister is picky) and now I'm home and have smoked a cigarette but still feel anxious.

I know I should have explored the resources for anxiety on this site, have put it off thinking i know enough and that I could get enough info just by posting messages. GOING TO THE RESOURCES NOW.

Aw, I am sorry OG! sad

Good on you for checking out the coping skill material here!

I do hope that you found something helpful and are feeling some relief now.

Remember, as difficult as today will pass, and tomorrow will likely be much easier....😊

I'm with you OG...had a pretty bad panic episode this week after running myself ragged with work.

But like SC said, these episodes fade and it did in my case. In some ways I'm calmer now than before the episode.

Hang in there buddy!
