Thank you to all who have responded and helped me in the past on here, once again I am in need of your valuable help.
This time I'm here to discuss what to do when u have had a nasty anxiety attack, and it leaves your anxiety through the roof for hour/days after.
You see this is the thing that keeps me trapped in the cycle of fear and spiralling down again, its not the moment itself when it happens that's so terrible, it's how terrible it makes u feel afterwards and for so long!! That's what keeps my anxiety so high waiting for the next time, and for me they are so unpredictable the really bad moments when my anxiety spikes.
I've been left bed ridden and in tears today after a nasty anxiety attack that I wasn't expecting last night, my worst one in a few Months, I tried it palm it off last night but this Morning woke up straight away physically in a terrible state, spasms, pins and needles and pains absolutely everywhere constantly.
The triggers are endless and unlogical which makes me feel like I'm going mad still, including the way something looks (bedroom wall as example) thinking words in my head, the way thoughts come to mind so quickly etc etc so anything and everything still triggers it off and builds up on one another still so that's triggers covered.
I try to get out of it but then very quickly get reminded just how terrible it feels and back down I go.
How do u recover better from an anxiety attack when it leaves u feeling so terrible for so long physically and mentally after? How do u accept them and not fear them based on that (I know they can't kill me or make me go insane)?
For me it really is the fear of fear, anxiety of anxiety, I cannot believe it can make u feel like this!!
Thanks in advance for your help.
