detour, I use to tell myself, if I could only bottle this good feeling, I'd be rich.

Selling it around the world to people looking for that magic potion. :) xx

Right .. You hit the nail right on the head!!!

I'm glad you are feeling better

Every. Single. Day. 😔

Occasionally I find strength in the idea that as scary as that last panic attack was, as awful as it felt, I survived it and can do so again.

I know.. But hell it's so exhausting mentally.. It kicks the crap out of you.. I hate the suffering... booooooo

What makes this week different then the last?

Finding the triggers and addressing them can help immensely. :) xx

Triggers... not sure.. But I spoke to soon.. Had a huge panic attack last night till 5 in the morning.. And today I felt ok for the rest of the day... but man I'm sooooooo sick of these panic attacks.. I have had them since I was 18.. I'm 53 now .. You really think I get used to them.. Or they should not bother me anymore after having thousands of them.. But they still affect me the same way from when I had my very 1st...

Scary scary!!!!!!

detour, you are certainly not alone with that thought in that each time is just as scary as the first. This is how Anxiety draws us in to it's lying mind game. Panic Attacks are usually more short run about 25 minutes or so. There is complete exhaustion after them

because they are so intense.

Anxiety Attacks are longer lasting because the adrenaline never really goes completely down. The after effects of an anxiety attack is called "free floating anxiety"..

You have certainly suffered with them long enough. Now is the time to say "goodbye" to this entity sitting on your shoulder, not allowing you to enjoy your life.

There are many avenues you can take to rid yourself of the years that anxiety has robbed you of. Being on this site was a step forward in coming to terms with this issue.

I suffered 30 years with anxiety, 5 of those years with Agoraphobia, when I never left my house. Enough ws enough of this nonsense. I pulled every resource I had and decided I would no longer allow something to be in control. This was my life and I was going to get

control back. I did and now I am here to pass my success forward.

Each day, more and more people on this site are experiencing the same success. Learn and listen from those who truly understand what it was and is like. :) xx

Thanks for the support.. I tried everything... I think I am just going to have to deal with them for the rest of my life.. I'm at the point where .. It is what it is.. I'm going to have to live with this demon for the rest of my life...

And yes I feel it ruined my life.. I'm happy there are people like you to help people out who are suffering .. If you never experienced panic attack. You have no idea how bad they are!!!!

oh that hit me like a knife :( Me never have suffered a Panic Attack/Anxiety Attack?? I was as bad as one could get. Enough to ask to be in patient so I could

work on myself and help myself go forward. It takes a lot of dedication and hard work to overcome anxiety. I was willing to not give up on myself. Never...

My life was too important to turn it over to these thoughts of fear.

I'm sad right now that you are willing to accept this demon for the rest of your life.

but I also know that with time come changes. Changes in our way of thinking.

I can't change it for you, when the time is right it will happen.

Meanwhile, please continue to come onto this forum for the support you need.

I might just not be the right person at this time. Know that I will always be here

if you need a positive note or two. I wish you well my friend. :) xx
