Unhappy This has to STOP!!

I'm going through another anxiety attack right now. This one is stronger, I feel out of breath, my head is hurting, I've paced around the house, I feel sick. I want to sleep but cant.

Thanks nsd

I'm growing concerned at the increasing intensities that these attacks are having. I had another one today before going to work. This one started and had the same symptoms: feeling sick, headache, shortened breaths, pacing (although I don't know if that qualifies as one). It was shorter than the last one although I suspect that having work gave me something to focus on and helped sort of direct my will to the idea that it must stop because I did not have time to waste on feeling like this (sort of trying to beat it into submission).

Work was ok and thankfully no other episodes happened during it. But I took with me one of my books to give my mind a point of focus. The less time it spends idle, the less it seems to have the opportunity to "implode" on itself. At least that's how it seems to be working for now. I hope that they don't learn to bypass having focus points.

Default anxiety or what ever it is

Crystal:
I am identifying with you. I need to talk so I hope you don't mind me addressing you. For about the last week my anxiety has been getting worse. I will be driving to work and start thinking about how bad its going to be driving this bad road people die every year on to starting to panic about it . I have been having talking my way out of most, however I did take a zanax today. This is a typical day of my life. getting ready for work , start to think about how much I don't want to go because I might make a mistake or someone might think I'm doing bad job or should be doing better at it. Then I go to how fat I am , I should be doing something about my body image, then to how I have no sex drive and my husband is going to leave me because of it ,to I can't be without him that is all I have ever known.But I don't blame him for wanting to leave / if the role was reverse I wouldn't want to live in a marriage where their was no affection other, maybe I should let him leave , he deserve better, I don't want to go on living this life any more to I have it much better than other I should stop feeling so sorry for myself and do whatever it takes to make things right . Then I just want to close my eye and sleep, but what if I don't wake up, I'm afraid to die, I don't want to leave my family they need me. etc etc This is an everyday cycle in my head, I question every thing I do., thinking I should be better, I need to make things right / but Then I question what it right/ is this what every person goes through in life. Yes I do see a psychiatrist once a month, right now I take buspirone hcl 30 mg twice daily( was on 15 twice daily but dr. thought it might help my libido therefore I have been taking the 30 about 3wks ) and celexa 20 mg at night. I also have a talk therapist but I only have been to him twice. I have no insurance and its very pricey to see them. I just wish I could find a happy place.

I'm sorry, I know how much it sucks. You can know all the right things that are supposed to help but sometimes you just can't make it stop.

I guess I reached my limit. I broke down about 30 minutes ago. I guess it was a good thing that it was just as I had gotten out of sight of a group of people. I'm not sure what to do...

Crystal,



I completely understand how you are feeling. The calm after a panic attack can be scary and confusing. I have severe panic attacks a few times a week, even with ativan. Usually, for me, after a panic attack I try to get things back in to perspective. Get my priorities straight and then I sleep. Once I wake up, I can generally start to see the big picture so to say. I hope you are feeling better. ::hugs::
