Hi pink cookie,are you trying your coping aids to try and calm down and relief your anxiety.I try to get out for a walk,do deep regular breathing,in through the nose hold for a count of 5 then out through the mouth,I also listen to music and play games on my iPad.Seems to help me.Can you go to your room,or can you still hear your parents there.If so maybe a walk,just to get away from it may help.x

Thankyou so much! Late reply i know but i did listen! Just got back from a very long walk with the dogs just sat in the hills was so relaxing but got a bit dark so decided maybe i should get back and do homework!

There have been times I couldn't have coped without the people on here.Do look into the extra time,I know from experience with family members ,you can get this,I'm sure one of your teachers will be able to point you in the right direction.

Have you downloaded "headspace",it is so useful.you get a free trial to see how you go with it.I also have an ebook called mindfulness which I downloaded from the kindle store at amazon,and that was free.Good luck with school tomorrow,I know it will be hard for you face everyone,but try the breathing before you go,and I'm sure you can listen to music on your way there.Will be thinking of you xxxx

Hi,I've just got home,had to go to Warrington,such a shame that you had all that stress for nothing this morning,but on the good side you made it there.

Isn't it so easy to say they've sent emails,when they haven't!

With tomorrow's and Fridays full you shouldn't have a problem with that.

I'm at my mums tomorrow and Thursday,so I won't be about much till Thursday evening,but let me know how it goes and I'll answer you as soon as I can.Enjoy your choccies,always a good plan for making you feel better xxxx

Hello :)

I'm here. Curled up on sofa feeling really rough with what I know is HA but it feels like the end of everything. Oh and yes, I'm worried about school in the morning too. Shame I'm a member of staff!!!!

Try to relax and distract yourself if you can.

HI pc It will pass... sorry to hear your parents are arguing Can you sort out why you are worried about school... is it something that may not happen. Your pain may be because your body is tensing up lowtongirl is right.. just try and remove yourself from the stress zone. Have to had panic attacks before?. Hope this helps a little keep posting if you need to steve

Thankyou! I had a massive panic attack at school about 5 weeks ago felt so silly! Ran out in front of everyone! Took the next 3 weeks off working from home now the 2 weeks holidays is up its time to go back! Yeah ive had a few :( thankyou for advice x

Glad you're feeling a bit brighter :)

I've had anxiety since I was your age too and it's a real pain when you're at school.

I found a book called "Living with IT" by Bev Aisbett really helpful. I still refer back to it today. It tells you all about panic attacks in cartoon firm and it really helped me come to grips with what was going on. You'd be able to get a copy off Amazon.

Best Wishes for tomorrow.

Love
