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).
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
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.
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.)
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.
