I wanted to see if anyone else feels like they’re dying when they’re panicking. Also what helps you guys when it’s happening because I feel crippled and like I can’t do anything.

Thanks in advance ☺️

I definitely feel that way. Especially when I have on going anxiety, huge feelings of dread, about everything, and almost impossible to stop thinking about it.

I've been having non stop anxiety for weeks, and have had to resort to medication to keep from going to the ER... as I know they will just medicate me anyway...

Talk as much as you can..

Hang in there.

I’m sorry you’re feeling that way. That’s sort of the same position I’m in. And I would never wish this on anyone else.

I really hope we can get better together.

Thank you for commenting. I hate that you feel that way but I’m glad I’m not alone.

Hi BlueAurora, it feels like you're dying when in a panic because that is what your subconscious mind is telling you. It doesn't reason, it puts out false alarms. Doing nothing only allows your mind to be in control. It's important that you do something positive to get that control back.

I found a new video on YouTube that can help when feeling like this. It gets into a lot of Affirmations which can help you get yourself together again.

When I am having a panic attack, curling up in a small space and counting my breathing really helps. Count out loud, 5 seconds in and 5 seconds out. Just keep taking deep breaths and try to tell yourself you are okay. Hope this helps!

I feel like Im about to implode when that happens to me. I feel everything racing and like Im about to die. Youre not alone there, I promise. A technique I learned was to use all your 5 senses and find 3 things you can see, smell, touch, taste, and hear. Sometimes you cant always have 3 things you can taste so I suggest thinking of your 3 favorite foods. I have found that this works pretty well for those times where I feel like I am loosing all control over my mind and body.

Thank you for taking your time to reply. I will try that next time. It’s just crazy how bad you feel sometimes it’s hard to step outside the feeling to be able to do that. Ya know?

Worse than the feeling of dying, I feel like I am going crazy. I went to the ER 10 times the first year after my panic attacks started. Each time I was convinced I was dying. Every test came back normal. 3 years later and I still fear going crazy every day. I cannot believe what anxiety and panic can do to a person who was once just a normal gal loving life and living the dream. It has ruined my life and I cannot seem to dig my way out. Prayers and hugs sent to you my friend.

Do you have nausea? I better it everyday. It triggers the anxiety big time. I'm wearing off Klonopin and it seems even worse now.

God it feels so good to know I’m not alone. Because no one else around me suffers with this so they wouldn’t even understand what you just said.

Thank you for responding.

I hate this crap. It has ruined my life. I swear I was perfectly normal up until my first panic attack. Now I can't believe it's just anxiety. I think it's something bad. Lord help us all.

I feel you. I just want to be healed. That’s all I want. I’m so tired of this. I don’t even know who I am anymore.

I am sorry you are going through this. I have anxiety as well and get attacks every now and then. What really helps me is getting outside and going for a walk. There is something about the fresh air that helps my mind get rid of all the negativity. Also, having a close friend or family member there for me really helps. I hope everything gets better.

Thank you for taking time to reply. I’m just trying to find the strength to even get out of bed and do anything. I’m scared of everything right now. 😞
