Horrible Panic ATTACK!!!

    Hi,

    I had a horrible panic attack today
    I'm still trying to calm down

    It's because I"m withdrawing off medicine my doctor told me to

    I'm at home alone

    Luckily I realize it and reached out

    i thought it was something else bothering me but it's not really


    It's a horrible panic attack

    It got worse and I got home when I was out

    And something prob set it off

    But it got bad

    And I didn't know what to do

    ----------------------

    I AKSED MY FAMLY AND FRIENDS TO PLEASE REMIND ME IF I ACT FUNNY
    TO REMIND ME I'M WITHDRAWING

    ITS NOT EASY
    IF IT GETS WORSE i HAVE TO GO TO THE HOSP

    BUT It's good I figured it out because I'm smart

    (I'm still going thru it)

    So, please reach out and remind me I"m withdrawing
    I don't know what will happen
    but my doc told me i might have a hallucinataion

    I had one the first night - 4 days ago
    I felt like I was being tickled which i was asleep but it didn't last long
    and I felt a lot better


    I'm okay now.

    I did self soothing last night without even thinking I was doing it
    I took a nice bath with bubbles and bath oil
    It was  nice


    I just called several people and was told to go for a walk so I did and it helped

    I got a nest of ground bees out back. Zillions of em. Big opening in the
    ground like a gofer hole. They don't bother me and I don't bother them.
    But never had one around here before.

    Good wishes from here, too, SGFR.  Hang in there!

    What's the best way we can help you here? Distraction? Conversation? Rationality and logic or silliness and humor?

    A friend of a friend of mine had a serious panic attack when she was on a cruise ship. That had to be awful. You are such a clear-headed thinker (I think), that I know you know what's going on now. I admire you for reaching out for the help you need to get through it.  Just keep us apprised of what we need to know to do our job, okay?

            Seriously? You linked this spoof video because you wanted to be the child-like waif that appeared on it?  Really?

            That person was not a woman, which I assume you are.

            Take your mind away from super-skinny child-like creatures because they are not what could be considered 'normal'.

            In fact, I was mildly disturbed by that video.

            I know it is a spoof, the guy with the dark, seductive and attractive looks and the girl with the waif-like body.

            He struck me as too full of himself, with too much emphasis on his macho body - pity about the lack of brain cells - while she struck me as a 'somewhere over the rainbow child' with an overactive sexual appetite.

            'Child' was still the operative word.

            Don't listen to labels, hun. Don;t let yourself be part of a clique. You are you, a unique person (that has multiple posted in this thread, but then again as the OP, that is your right, I suppose).

              schoolgirlforrealposted 4 years ago in reply to this

              No I didn't want to be the waif. The one I did was a little embarrassing so I decided not to post it. It's too late now, I deleted it LOL; I'm better at singing than dancing. I've a bit heavy right now. Over 200lbs. But losing weight thou thank God. wow your comment is a bit rude! dude

                    I don't like people pre-judging my intentions. Post-judging and getting it wrong is even worse.

                    I never had any problem with you until you started posting negatively towards me.

                    You do know that if you look for trouble, you will find it?

    LOL - SGFR, how are you doing now?  How's the dancing?  Do you need some fast music?  My newest Hub has some great YouTube clips with fast music (some of it, anyway - some is slow). It's all Fifties music - all of that super-oldie-goldie stuff.

    There are so many things that you can do, love, to cure yourself from panic and anxiety disorder. 
    I did. 
    It takes HUGE commitment, willpower, strength, and faith.

    I was on heavy meds for a while, but then I became determined to heal myself without meds.

    If you seriously want to heal yourself, you can!  You have the power. 

    Big Hugs,
    Mira

    How's the transition going, schoolgirl? It sounds like you are doing much better! Is that correct? Did you manage to dance away that panic attack (lol)?

    One of my son's friends has an anxiety disorder, and one of the things that helps him a lot is physical exercise. (Truthfully, I think most of us in the Western world need a lot more exercise than we get from day to day - or maybe it's just me and my family.)

    Hang in there and keep us posted.

      It's a lot better. If you read my latest hubs you'll learn more. I"m off the drug I was detoxing off of. I feel so much better, thank you!!

      True!

    Were you going off one drug and starting another better drug for you?. I'll bet that is really difficult. I was afraid to try it one time. I will read the hub. Good luck.

    1. schoolgirlforreal profile image74
      schoolgirlforrealposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      I think I cancelled the hub, the change didn't work the new one made me extremely restless- resulting in  the hyper posting. It was miserable I couldn't sleep or function well.

    If you don't like these kind of posts,
    then blame the doctors who mess up people's lives with ignorant
    ways they treat their patients.

    This doctor messed me up for almost a month.

    I enjoyed the Dirty Dancing Parody vid! I laughed a lot while watching - thx for posting, SGFR!

    Are you feeling more steady now?

    I have panic disorder but use natural methods to deal with it 'cos I'm also a recovering addict and can't take most medications. Panic attacks are no fun at all but mine are well managed now via meditation and thinking "prompts" (previously arranged thinking prompts to get my mind out of "train-wreck" mode).

    I hope you're balancing out better regarding the med withdrawal, etc.

    Panic often occurs in different forms and often without warning. I use Emotional Freedom Techniques and breathing when I remember to reduce the pain and fear. Try it...and remember panic is a warning sign of listening to your body and your fears...

    No way, Very fast measure to take medication then start doing Yoga, specially pranayama ( deep breathing exercises). Yoga works excellent but takes time and obviously, to start Yoga take help of an competent teacher, specially for pranayama.
