Try some deep breathing. Slowly, in for 5 seconds, hold for 4, out for 5. It helps to bring the panic down.

Hello Rbolty, please don’t do anything crazy. I know what you’re going through is tough, but try to calm down by imagining yourself at a place you’d like to be. Count backwards from 10 while you’re taking in deep breaths. Do you like to go for walks or jog leisurely? If you do, get outside and go for a walk—or jog—in the park. Believe me, this will do wonders if you’re a nature-lover. I’ve tested it and you should give it a try.

Awww I get that a lot. I either call someone or do something simple around the house. Just remember anxiety can’t hurt you. Just take some nice calm breaths and then maybe settle down on the couch and close your eyes with some nice music on.

Hey there. That feeling of not knowing if you can endure the pain of one more breath or one more thought crammed in - it's so intense. And we often do what seems sensible, to run and hide. Or just run. Or just hide.

The thing that bothers me so much about anxiety is that it comes on so strong as if it's all-important. It's there, I agree. But I've caught myself confusing intensity with importance. I like what MariaLove123 says, that anxiety can't hurt you. It sure feels like it! For minutes, hours even. But as we sit and face it/face ourselves, and not just cover it up like so many people do, it will pass. Like a storm, it always passes.

I don't know if these words help as much as I hope they do. They are words that I tell myself when I'm in the grip of anxiety - when I'm torn between yelling and crying, fighting and giving up. And not only does it pass, we get stronger.

I wake up in a panic everyday. I have bad trauma from when my mom died when I was nine. I've had bad anxiety all the time growing up and still have it. I know what u are dealing with.

I know what you're going through. I went through a depression with the most horrific intense non-stop anxiety you can imagine. I am here for you. Are you on meds for it and do they help?

Yeah on meds but they don’t work too much . I also go to therapy once a week and that helps most of the time.Need stronger meds but here in Florida they are so hesitant to give you anything and it’s like jumping through hoops . It’s crazy but too many people here lie and it ruins it for people who really need certain meds.

Hi, I know how anxiety feels. I have been there. Try to focus on your breathing. Breathing slowly and deeply helps. Have you considered talking to a trusted professional about this? If you are interested, I know a number you can call for free, so feel free to message me. You are not alone in this. Praying for you.

Oh no I'm sorry to hear that friend 😔 Is there anywhere that might be able to help out ? Maybe another doc at your docs office might be able to help you ?
