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 need people to talk to on facebook, so if you're a facebook firend of mine, please talk to me when I try to talk to you. thnaks
You are doing really well, I guess it is not easy but tell yourself that you are making progress.
Not on Facebook but sending good wishes to you.
I've been thru many challenges like thi sbefore!
Is the photo of your pet cat it looks a very happy cat?
yes. his name was lenny. yes. he was a good cat.
Hey, Rosie. Thought we were already friends on FB. Look me up there if you want.
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?
I'm on half of my seroquel, 200 now 100
and on respieridol up to 4mg I think
the withdrawls but also
resperiedol makes me have lots of energy.
I'm dancing (that's why I mentioned energy) give me energy, will prob lose more wiegt!
I might post my embarrassing video dancing just for laughs
just kidding lol. (not me obviouslyl) do you really want to see the 'fat' me? lol.
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
What part is rude? I was trying to help, but I won't bother in future.
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?
ok this is the fat me dancing. ha ha!
nah i can't sorry.
Whatever else is going on - you have just invented hyper-posting
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
