Panic attacks before bed

It's 3 in the morning and I cannot sleep.

Today was finally a good day for me, I was fine all day and as soon as I layed down to sleep I find myself getting a hot flash and waking up. My heart keeps racing and I keep getting this weird feeling all over my body.

I'm scared and I don't know how to make it stop.

Hi Nicolen,

I find that simply saying I know what this is and concentrating on deep breathing tends to help. You know this is panic and you know it's. it going to hurt you.

I hope you've managed to get to sleep ok

Thank you. I guess I ended up falling asleep, but I woke up a few times during the night and I also had a nightmare I'm not sure if it's related to that.

Just hoping it doesn't happen tonight as well, I'll just try to stay calm and breathe
