Sorry you're feeling panicky. Do you practice deep breathing and muscle tension/relaxation?

No but i need to start i use counting and mindfullness but i m not eating right or poooping

So sorry you're not feeling well. I inhale slowly and exhale slowly when I feel anxiousp/a /panicky. This helps me.

Hi Lessthanone, you are in a severe state of overwhelming anxiety which is causing

you to go in and out of panic. This happens because the adrenaline never has a chance

to go away. And so it stays at a low level *like a pilot light, ready to go full blown in a moment's notice. It's called "Free Floating Anxiety".

When our life is more about existing than living, we need help. Usually, it about being

put on medication for a while as well as having talking therapy. The two together will

be able to offer you some comfort.

While on medication/therapy, you will need to find other tools to help you.

I use Meditation and Breathing techniques several times a day each and every day.

That is the only way to keep the Mind/Body at an even keel. Once you get use to doing this practice every day, you will be more ready to take on any challenges (such as finances) that you are dealing with. Life is never going to be perfect, never. And so we must accept what

life throws at us and be better prepared to handle it. I'm glad you are here with us.

We are not doctors and can't offer medical advise but at least we can help support you so

you don't feel so alone as well as know that someone cares about you :) xx

Thank you explains a lot i am on meds and some talk therapy but helps the most here


I won't add any advice as you have had some really good comments but I love the way you say Panic is eating me alive , I would say anxiety is eating me alive but never thought of putting it that way till I saw your post and that is exactly what it feels like

Hope finding others that can relate and knowing you are not alone has helped :-) x

Try deep breathing. Move around a little. Talk to a friend, I've bee there -- don't know how but I am still around. Four years ago, I was diagnosed as having Mild Cognitive Impairment and Major Depression. For 2 years, I sat in front of my PC & waited for Dr. Alzheimer to knock on my door. Wanted to die. So I demand another test and it came back negative for MCD -- "ooops. we goofed". The depression is still around but it seems to have morphed into anxiety. Had a Panic Attack couple of weeks ago and rear-ended a guy pretty hard. His car had small damage but my fully restored '67 Mustang is very damaged. So next week, I am going to see if I have Panic Disorder. Have been ready to give up a couple of times but it would absolutely "Kill" my daughter & grandson so I keep on pushing......😜
