Feel like I'm havering a panic attack again I'm a bit scared and I'm sorry that I've not been on here for a few weeks but been unwell & busy

I've not been well tonight, but mind you started back with the drama school and done all the things I've set out to do there, and a big DIY project and I'm worried about money again and to top it off I've had a cold and then another gum infection but tonight I feel now I feel the whole thing is built up to the point that I'm a little scared of having a panic attack. ( those bad feelings ) if I was honest it's been a least 3 to 4 weeks that I have been on here and have been doing well but I've not been to the gym because of a bug and gum infection and doing the girls room ( think I have over done it just by reading what I've put so far ) but went the gym today Mabye a bit to soon still not feeling well.

And stupid me had a go on the playstation tonight I don't think that's not helped ether think I'm going to avoid games grrrr sorry for going on but need to get this off my chest.

Sometimes I wishing could just say that's it I need two weeks off work and not think about work or anything else for that matter

See what I mean feeling a bit down and anxious

  • Coming on here does help even if to just get things off your chest Lets hope I sleep now

  • Sounds like you have been overdoing things a bit.... you need a few calm days among those busy ones. It's good to come on here and rant as people know exactly how you feel. If I look forward too much to what I have to do I get very anxious so I try not to and just take each day as it comes. Put the play station away for a while.....all action!!!! and no peace. Try and relax and the panic will go away.... they are vicious things ... the more you think about them ,the more likely you are to have one..... they feed on that negative emotion. Looks to me as though you have been doing very well these past few weeks but now you have earned a little 'down time' . Take it and recuperate. All the best. Julie xx

  • don't do it!! Taking time out of everyday things eg work gets your anxiety worse.. The more busy you are the less likely you are to panic as your mind is elsewhere. It's good that you've been busy. Sorry you've been ill think it's that time of year, I had a cold last week

  • Heya,

    I think its a case of one thing happening after another, and now you're feeling completely overwhelmed. From your post it sounds like you've got a couple of things on your mind - your cold and gum infection; school; the DIY project; and money. My advice is to tackle things one at a time. It sounds to me like your first order of priority should be to get yourself better. Once you're feeling better, you can focus better on school, and tackling the DIY project. I'm not sure what's going on the money situation, but I'd reckon once you're feeling better, you'll be better equipped to sort that issue out.

    I understand its easy to get completely overwhelmed, then anxious, when faced with so many things. You may feel like you have no control over whats happening, are helpless on how to tackle it, and don't know where to start. Break everything down into small manageable chunks (making a list in order of priority can help). Then have a plan to tackle one thing at a time, and when its completed, scratch that item off your list. You'll see as you go along, as more and more things get completed, that you'll start to feel better.

    Best of luck.

  • Thanks for the above advise I feel that my last year when I had my breakdown burn out that it was due to the overwhelming worries and work load I've not had a break from work and I do keep busy I have made a list of things to do and I'm starting a mindfulness course today although my panic was mild it was a wake up call.

    That I may have taken on a bit to much to soon whilst feeling rundown anyway Thankyou for your advise :-)
