i feel really on edge right now...i have chills and feel dizzy and this wierd feeling of detachment... like im not really in my body? and yet i feel claustrophobic. i know it sounds wierd and i honestly think im going crazy. i guess this is a panic attack of sorts? last time was worse -- at least im not trembling this time. augh i wanna sleep or something but im scared that if i do ill stop breathing or die or something and GOD my name really isnt paranoid girl for nothing is it?!

Hi Paranoid, sounds like a panic attack to me.  Yuck! Try and take some deep breaths count three in three out, try and focus on slowing down your breathing and then try and take your mind off it.  Can you watch telly or read a book? I know it's really hard when your head is spinning but try and focus on something other than what your body/mind is doing.  I usesd to be scared that I would stop breathing if I went to sleep when I first had panic attcks (14 years ago) and I'm still here so I don't think you need to worry about that!!!!! Good luck Paranoid Girl (good name!) let us know how you go, I hope you get some zzzz soon. ((hugs))

Yep does sound like a panic attack
Breathe and keep in mind they wont kill you
Laying down and having a nap if you can wont kill you either
