Anxiety attack with no one to help

I feel like I'm having an anxiety attack. I can't breathe, my heart is beating out of my chest, my shaking and no one around me is giving me any support. I can't take this any more. I've never felt more alone in my life. Even though I live in a house with 3 other people. I want to seek to my mum but she's working, I want her to tell me everything will be okay and I'm just having a a bad day

  • Ok first off you need to try and slow your breathing. If you can go sit in your room or some quite place and close your eyes. what works for me is picturing a peaceful place that is your perfect place. Some place where you are happy. focus on that truly get into the detail of it until you are able to breath a little easier. Everything will ok. You will be ok. your body is telling you that you won't but you will. Once you are breathing easier go get a wash rag and warm it up as hot as you like and just press it to your forehead neck face where ever it feels the most relaxing . The steam will help relax you and the warm cloth with help you focus on something other than your anxiety. Right now your body is telling your brain all sorts of stuff. You have to try and focus on something else. If you are feeling dizzy from hyperventilating sit down and continue to breath slow. In through your nose exhale from your mouth. Once this is past I suggest having eucalyptus or lavender oil around they are natural calming agents that can really help.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  • Thanks. No where in my house is quiet. Everyone is making noise. I have lavender oil I may put some in my oil burner later to help. I feel like the attack isn't ending it's just dimming to a simmer and could start again at again any minute

  • You aren't alone. I definitely relate to how you feel. Too-man-cats-sir is spot on. Everything's is okay. I'm not sure what it's like where you live and if it's safe for you, a walk can be helpful. If your roommates noise is adding to it stepping out may do wonders. It's going to pass either way. You're okay and you are NOT alone. You can get through this. Breathe slow and stay strong. You've got this! :)

  • It's not really safe to take a walk at this time. I'm trying to make my room my safe space. I'm trying to plan things to get a good night's sleep tonight. Because I've not slept properly for days and that always brings my anxiety up

  • Ok this is going to sound really stupid but try having a coversation with your mom or whom ever you want even if they are not there a practice one. I tend to do this when I am very panicked freaking out it helps and you can just keep changing it but it helps to distract you mind. I hope you find some peace

  • That's a really good idea. I'll do this next time I feel stressed out and panicky. I did eventually find peace and manage to relax

  • Hi..Panic attacks for me gets really frightening but I've learnt to handle it a little better now..Once it comes on I find someone to talk to even if it's a child..I talk my way through it..And it works..So try doing that..Daily exercise has helped me to sleep better at nights..My head is tender when I massage and I also have slight headaches..These are new feelings but I'm not gonna let them get to me and you shouldn't too..Stop and smell the roses..Think about positive things..Look at how beautiful God's creation is..Trust God and leave all your burdens at the foot of the cross..He's always with us we only need to have faith and believe and one day all this depression anxiety and stress will pass..Have a blessed and wonderful day
