It’s 1am and I’ve been having horrible anxiety and I feel like I can’t breath and dizzy. I took a second super vitamin b complex just now, I had one earlier this morning. I took my Zoloft but it’s not helping at all. I feel like I’m gonna lose my mind its destroying me. I can’t do anything without feeling like I’m gonna have an panic attack in public. I was at my friends a couple days ago and almost had one but I went to the bathroom and hid from my friend so they didn’t know cus I didn’t want to ruin the day.

You have to let someone know what you are going through. You should not hide this. I know its easier said than done. I know the feeling all too well, Embarrassment, shame, guilt. I hide in the restroom all the time. At work, at home, at school. But its only a temporary relief. Panic attacks are persistent and they rarely take a day off. They are mostly triggered when im in a place where i feel i cant leave without someone noticing. Like job meetings, family dinner, church. Or when my anxiety is really elevated. Im off the meds now bit desperately need to get back on them. I don't know the best answer but i know talking about it helps.

It is a terrible feeling, the fear it will happen! That it was fuels the Panic Attack- fear! But the best advice I ever received was that it is a feeling in your body and that it can not kill you. When my anxiety is really bad and the symptoms change I check if others have experienced it- if they have I just ride it out and remember that it will pass as my body can’t sustain this and I will get better. I read lots, walk and try to stay present in what’s happening now and not think ahead as it could be daunting. I don’t tell people when it’s bad because they worry about me and that makes me feel like crap- out of 10 how is anxiety today! 10 now we’ve spoke about it etc but everyone is different. When I was really bad I had to tell someone for my kids as I found them overwhelming and that made me feel guilty and anxious but now I have coping strategies my life is totally different. Read lots about what is happening to your body, change your life style for a bit to adjust- that’s ok! But without a doubt talk to your doctor and get counselling- I paid privately and after finding someone that suited me I gained the understanding and strategies to move forward with anxiety in my life. I have great periods which last longer than the not so great. I have not had a panic attack for at least 5 years as I stop it progressing. I really hope this helps you.
