I have been having a tough time since saturday. A few crying episodes because my physical symptoms make me so afraid. I have been doing much better and my panic episodes are fewer but have had more just recently. I am home alone during the day while my husband works and son is in school. When i am idle, i find myself thinking (how am i feeling? Any psychical symptoms? And before you know it, my hands start sweating, i become aware of my heartbeat and feel like i cant breathe relaxed. At times i cry to relieve the worry.
I try to distract myself and start describing things around me that i see, hear, smell...a mindfulness activity. Another way i can distract myself is to write in this forum and know i will be heard. It will pass, it always does.
Thanks for listening
