I have a 12 year old, I was curious. Why is she upset with you?

Reply

Because I’m having a panic attack right now and I can’t breathe

No one understands

I'm sorry that your daughter doesn't understand your panic attacks. It is not an uncommon complaint (for lack of a better word) that people, even ones close to us, don't understand and think we should "just get over it" or "suck it up". More importantly, are you okay? Do you do breathing exercises or meditations to dampen the severity of the attacks?

She gets anxiety but she’s never had a full-fledged panic attack where you go numb and tingle in your heart races and I had a bad day at work today because of some really bad that happened lately I’ve been down and depressed and my mind hasn’t really been there I’m sorry you had a bad day too I just can’t read at the moment needed someone to talk to and she yelled at me and said that I was a bad mom

I'm confused. Was she upset because you weren't there for her even though you were having a panic attack?

I went for a walk and I found the app on my iPhone so my mind is clearing now and I’m not in them and I can breath thank you so much for listening to me. They gave me this pamphlet at work and they sent me home early today because my mind wasn’t working right and I can’t make you stupid mistakes because it’s clogged with problems I thought I was looking for a counselor but this is better I think so what’s wrong with you Marshall 64 what kind of a day did you have

My day was okay. That is good that you asked though because helping others helps ourselves. I don't get panic attacks (I suffer from depression and some mild social anxiety) but I can listen. That gets me out of my head. 😊

Please NEVER forget...You are NOT and you are NEVER alone in this....there are people right there with you...either physically or the spirit is there with you.

Do you have something (an object or a stuffed animal) that you can look at or focus on to help calm down your breathing? Maybe if you look at that object or stuffed animal and just focus on that, it may help. I have done that before when I am anxious and that does help me.

I’ve been through all the coping I do know how to cope with it the only thing is is my family doesn’t understand that it’s physical so Tgey may get upset with me and call me stupid tell me I’m weak. But they don’t know all live with nobody does and I don’t have any buddy to talk to you and I can’t believe I found this place I’m really not good with social stuff

I know it’s stupid but when I am anxious if I’m not to the point where my eyes are tingling and I can see I like to make lists and I like to do art and I like to just write one word over and over again with lots of colors I guess I’m a kid at heart what do you do you

No I’m not in counseling yet I’ve been many many times in the past the people at work gave me a pamphlet and I thought I was looking for a counselor but I found this so I’m not quite sure if I did it right but this is me I’ll try it for a while but I’ll still look for a counselor tomorrow if they don’t fire me and I still have insurance. The thing is going to counseling Before I never understood what was wrong with me because LHad a happy childhood I just never felt normal butI’m pretty sure I know what happened and I am normal I cried when I realized I was actually born normal and I thought it was a private chat I didn’t know it is it someone broke me a long time ago before I could even remember

OK let me clarify this one more time so the person above julester49 will see there is also going to conversation and anybody who comes in here Jon’s in like a group

There are people here that do understand what you are going through. Do you go to counseling and if so, would your family be willing to go with you? Maybe they would get some insight if a professional could explain it to them.

Lol like I said I don’t understand these forum things. Is this one message?? Confusing

Reply

I don't know if I can explain it right but you create a post and people respond. You can reply in general in the dialog box or reply to a specific person's response by hitting the "reply". It is like one long thread. I hope I explained it okay.

Am I answering my own posts or do I just talk to much

I had a good childhood but have suffered from depression since I was a teenager. Nothing happened; depression just runs in our family.

I asked about counseling because maybe your family would get a better understanding if they heard what you are going through by a professional.

You know I’m looking for a counselor right now but the thing is they think I am an alcoholic there two times a year that I drink and then my two triggerpoints birthday and the day that I watched her die and I get drunk well this July I really screwed up and I was in angry drunk and my 12-year-old son saw me and I don’t want him to grow up like that because my older to watch to me loser myself for two years after my mom died and that was 19 years ago is that too much information

Reply

That is not too much information. You have concerns. Try not to beat yourself up over one incident.
