Worrying trip

Hi! So I came to my parents house for Christmas my anxiety and panic was so horrible coming and I felt I should stay at home and not come because something bad would happen to me, I would not make it back home. I was previously on paxil and stop taking it and for about a month I have been feeling so bad panic attacks everyday in a constant state of panic all day long thinking I am dying I will not make it back home not evening feeling like I remember how I got here this is so horrible. I did go to the doctor before I left to get back on paxil but I al so miserable and I dont fee like I will be ok again or make iy back home. Anyone who can talk it will be greatly appreciated.

Hi am sorry you’re going through a hard time. Did your doctor give u something for anxiety attacks? If you feel you’re not going to be safe u can always text the Criss text helpline 741-741 go call a Criss hotline or go to the emergency you’re not alone and is a lot of people who get worse around Christmas try to take deep breaths and relax what u like to do for fun? What are your grateful for? Am here to talk to u

Thanks! No she didn’t give me anything for the anxiety. Ok can they do something for the anxiety or are they just to talk? Thank you so much for responding. I have been hiding out most of the trip. I am grateful for my daughter and that even though I feel like I am going crazy I haven’t yet. Thanks!

They are there to talk and probably give u resources u can go to for help. U probably should ask your doctor about something for anxiety to help u relax more. And you’re not going crazy. We all going through something just remember u don’t have to go through it alone no more is a lot of support out here

Hi. I understand exactly what you are talking about.

The scary bad thoughts are usually something "we" do when we don't want to deal with what is in front of us, so we make up a story in our head to focus on to keep us distracted.

There was a piece of advice that my chiro gave me one Saturday morning when I started to have some anxiety and "couldn't" stop it before a treatment. SHE looked at me quietly for a long time and then, she said, STOP IT!!!!!!

TIghten up, knock it off!

none of this is necessary.

Man I laughed, and she was right.

Take her advice..........too!

Thank you so much! I will be telling myself that today. I have to go to another function at another house.

You’re welcome

I have similar feelings about not making it back home safely too. I have to go to my parents tomorrow and I always worry that something bad will happen too.

It is so troublesome and frustrating. I always think I wish I could pin point the exact moment that I started being this way so I could try something else. I hope you have a great trip.
