Do you suffer from Panic Attacks?
Anxiety is a serious problem!
I am not a doctor but I have had anxiety for a number of years and I have learned some things to do when you have a panic attack to help it go away and I want to share this knowledge with you.
If you have never had a panic attack it is hard to describe what it does to you, it makes you sick mentally and physically and there have been times when I truly believed that I was dying, I have talked with several different medical doctors about anxiety and they all told me the same thing, If you are having anxiety you need to get outside in the sun and take a walk and call a friend, I have tried this and it does work, I don't know why maybe it is because it gets your mind off the panic attack and that makes it go away, another thing I have done that works really well is if I start feeling like I am going to have a panic attack than I will look around the room and find whatever objects are in it, look at the wall, and say to myself in my mind that is a wall, that is a clock, etc until it goes away I think that works because it also gets your mind off the panic attack.
How can you tell you are having a panic attack or anxiety, for me it is very easy I will have a feeling of dread, and I get where I can't breathe, my heart starts racing and I want to get up and get moving or sometimes I will feel like I can't walk, I'm sure my face gets red and my blood pressure goes up and I just feel bad and I start thinking that something bad is gonna happen, when this happens I immediately will go for a walk and call someone on my cellphone and most of the time, that alone will stop it.
Another thing that will help you with anxiety is to exercise, if you are like me and don't like going to a gym, just get out and do something, it really doesn't matter what as long as it gets you moving, I like to walk or jog but that is me, my point is to do something physical that you enjoy, even if you can't walk and are in a wheelchair you can still exercise, just lifting your arms or legs is exercising and it will help you with your anxiety.
Also when you are having a panic attack just tell yourself in your mind that this is just a panic attack I am going to be fine, this will pass soon I just need to relax and breathe and it will go away, just say that over and over in your mind and it will work.
I have had severe anxiety for years but as I have applied the things mentioned above it has helped me tremendously and I hope that it does the same for you.
Always talk to your doctor before beginning any exercise plan, I am not a doctor or a expert on anxiety these are just things that help me when I have a panic attack, don't be ashamed to talk to your doctor or friends,family about anxiety.
Your doctor may have to put you on medication for anxiety but I think it is better than the suffering of the panic attacks or anxiety, like I said earlier unless you have had one it is hard to describe just how debilitating they can be.
May God Bless Us All
