Hey again, it is Thursday night and I have been feeling a little bit better. But yesterday, I had a panic attack while driving home from work..it was a really bad one. even when I got home i couldnt convince myself that it was ever going to go away. I tried my Xanax, i broke it and took it and it put me to sleep. I usually get very tired after an attack because of the adrenaline overflow. But when I woke up I had anxiety all day like I was on the verge of another attack. I have found that when I have an attack that it is so hard to gain confidence back. I mean, these things aren't THAT frequent but it seems like the experience of one can stay with you for a day or two. I just have to keep reminding myself that they only last at most 30 mins when they happen...but they are SOOO scary.
But other than fear of an attack I made it thru work OK. Today was a pretty good day.
Does anyone else have a hard time regaining confidence after an attack?
