Obsessive thoughts panick attack - Anxiety Support
Sfqueen, I'm sorry you had a bad anxiety attack but am glad that you are now starting to calm down. I know how scary they can be. Did you know that crying helps release some of the adrenaline gone wild? Depending how severe and how often you get this way make warrant you being put on medication just for a while. I would ask your doctor what he may recommend to give you a little respite for a while. Since meds aren't the total answer, you may need therapy while on medication to learn how to control these obsessive thoughts. I wish you well. x
I have been experiencing anxiety and panic attacks for nearly a year. My best advice is to be patient and most importantly learn to believe an anxiety attack cannot hurt you physically. Your obsessive thoughts are the cause, so that's what you need to work on. If the thoughts slow down so will the attacks. I was feeling at a total loss a couple of months ago thinking I'd never get better.. but now I'm doing so well. I had hypnotherapy and for me that worked better than CBT or anything else I tried.
Hoping you feel better
i am so fearful of medical check up and results. I am yet to recover from the Fear. I am so scared that i will get some major illness like cancer. my mammogram showed all normal but the result showed two tiny cysts on both sides which are benign. The doctor said that usually we need to do these mammogram and pap smear once in two years but now i have to go next year and all these thoughts cause me anxiety and i feel so down. i also did my pap smear and the doctor said if the results are normal they will send me a letter otherwise they will call me. my heart starts thumping each time my hp rings. i feel this terrible fearful feeling in my chest all the time, feel that i am unable to lift my spirits. cant take the negative thoughts off. i just keep praying and consoling my self. Feel so sorry for all in the same boat. God please have mercy on us!
Most definitely helped, to be honest I think I would have committed suicide if I had not been given anti depressant s. However these thoughts are so awful that if the thought s are so abhorrent to you you will never act on them I was told that at the time. You won't see that yet but in time you will. I have four grandchildren and I was terrified they might come back again when the first one was born . I am fine as you will be sweetheart ,don't fight them just relax and let them pass. The more you fight the more you panic. You really need an appt before 17th, see if you can get emergency one. Let me know how you get on. Whilst you are like this you see no end to it. However I am proof you can and will.
I cannot even believe I am saying this to you, because 30 years ago when I was in the depth of all this . I could never see me recovering. You will be stronger because of it. I have cancer and got through the chemo and rad s. After open to remove part of my boon and several nodes. Send you my love. Stand and look at yourself in the mirror and swear at yourself. Come out with words that would normally be alien to you. Lose your rag with that other person in the mirror. I would never wish depression on the devil himself xxxxxxxxxx
Hi yesterday I had to see my regular doctor because I couldn't deal with my anxiety and my thoughts. Didn't tell him too much about my thoughts be cause he is a medicine doctor but anyways he gave me Lorazepam but just so I can get some rest he said not to take them unless I feel like I can't control my anxiety. He also started me on sertraline antidepressant he is said it will take 4 weeks to feel the deference one tablet 59mg a day. Hope this helps too my appt on the 17th 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 Today I feel better I hope I don't get those thoughts I am with my little one all day.
Don't want to frighten you but as doctor said use Lorazepam (Ativan) when you desperately need them. They are highly addictive, taken as a first aid measure fine. The antidepressants wil help but take time and you see doc on 17th. Hang on to that . Perhaps you could get counselling too. It has helped me. Was denied contact with my two grandchildren for two years after my son had bitter divorce. My heart was broken ,see them now and again after long court battle , . They are 6 and 8 two beautiful little girls.Had counselling helped a lot.
Much love One day at a timexxxxxx.
He did tell me about that so he told only to take them whe I am desperate but since I been fighting between my anxiety and thought for the last two days felt like I need to rest. But I will start tonight on the antidepressant til I see the therapist 🙏🏽it's so hard to get seen our here there's a waiting list
I was exactly where u were months ago. Exactly. And i was just as afraid and wondered if id ever recover. I have been slowly... But i promise you will get better. Fear is a bitch. And that is what our anxiety feeds on. Know yourself, how much you love her. Remember who you are everytime a thought crosses your mind, it is just ocd. But not who you really are. The thoughts will fade you will see. Take every day as a stepping stone.
