Spoken to my doctor over the phone about how I feel he said basically he ain’t going to sugar coat it but how I’m feeling constantly having panic attacks etc will only get worse over the months as my mother is dying, he said your body stressed out and it’s trying to cope but it can’t. I hate panic attacks I’m having them are so serve I’ll be ok next minute I’m screaming I can’t breath get chest pains go all sweaty dizzy hear rate goes sky high It’s just SOOO AWFUL!

Now I gotta fear of going into cardiac arrest Iv seen it so much on tv and I know this girl my age that went into one. They say it could happen to anyone just so scared it’s going to happen to me. It says if u get palpitations all time your more likely at risk of it 😥

Hope everyone is well anyway n coping the best they can

Kaaayla, please sit quietly (no music, no tv, no distractions), take a deep breath. close your eyes and ask God to help you. Tell yourself everything will be alright. It's hard to deal with your mother dying. I know. Been through that. But you are not dying. Please see a psychotherapist if you can. Prayed for you.

I don't believe the answer is in the science of the mind. Please see a Christian therapist. Our beliefs have a lot to do with how we think and respond to circumstances. You can do it. Yes it is horrible. I suffered from depersonalization for a few years. Self-evaluation is the key but sometimes we need someone to help us realize why we think and feel the way we do.

So sorry. Tell yourself my heart racing has happened before and I was okay. Take deep breaths and close your eyes and say to yourself "I will be okay." Think about something pleasant. "

Not sure. But I've had pressure in my chest and had many stress tests because of my complaints to doctors. I've learned that when I purposely relax and tell myself this has happened before. It will go away. It usually does. I stop thinking about it. Praying for you Kaaayla.

Will you pray for me too love got lots of people praying for me thankyou xx

I believe stress causes more stress. If we can't control the stress we are under it could cause more stress you already have. Your situation with your mom cannot help you at all. It's very hard what you're going thru. I'm praying for you and your mom and have been awhile now.❤

Trust me I would if I could. But my heart breaks for you everyday.💔❤🌹

Have you tried the Headspace app? It's free, and it helped me.

I’ll try that. Thankyou

Kaaayla dearest, no one can be put in a constant state of stress and not react to it.

You have been put in a 24/7 caregiver position for months on end. You need a break

once in a while to cope with your own issues. Are there hospice nurses that can come

to relieve you for short periods of time. You need a physical and mental break knowing you can take a breath because your mom will be in good hands for those moments.

Medication is also important during this highly stressed period.

Also talking to others on the forum can allow you to know you are not alone. You are going through one of the hardest tests of your life. Know that we are here with you through this difficult journey. Sending my love to both you and your mother. xx
