Panic attack

Dear lovely people,

I had a panic attack last night which started around 11 pm, although it was a milder one than I have had. I fell asleep and woke up at around 2 am and still felt anxious and alone or isolated. The citralopam appears to be working.

Because of these feelings I decided to log onto this community and saw that others had also logged on during the early hours with their difficulties. I felt less isolated and felt that if i needed I could write something and someone might respond. I felt supported.

It is such a beautiful site and i am so happy.

I feel so sorry for everyone who is struggling with their issues . I have been tempted on many occasions to respond to blogs or questions however I do not want to give bad advice and make things worse for someone.

Kindest regards,

  • Hi Marcus

    I am so glad you have found this site so useful & i was also having panic attacks last night , waking me up , I didnt logg on though I wouldnt have thought any one would have been on , so you have just given me some good advice there without even knowing it , logg on no matter what time of day !

    And thats how this works just share your own experiences , that is all you can do , if it helps some one its a bonus , people just want to hear someone understands , that can go along way

    Please dont be afraid of giving bad advise , we take what is helpful to us & leave the ones that are not , but may be helpful to others

    I am sure you have alot to offer to this site so please as well as getting help ,start sharing your experiences with others , I am sure you will be a huge help !

    A big Welome too

  • You would be surprised how many people turn to chat rooms, blogs etc during the wee small hours. It's always comforting to know that you are not the only one and are not alone. I think that's the best because any mental issues can make you feel very alone. Good luck with sleep tonight.

  • Dear Jeffju,

    Thank you for your kind reply. I had a decent night's sleep last night. It put me at easy to know that others might be there on this website.

    I want to be there for others also.

    kindest regards,


  • Dear Marcus,

    It can be a very scary and lonely time when experiencing Night attacks. I have had several attacks over tha passed 3 weeks and found this site an amazing place not just for support but also to write your thoughts downs. There is always some who will reply.

    I hope you will have a better day today.

    Best wishes

  • Hi. I only joined this site a few weeks ago although I have experienced panic attacks and depression for the last 15 years. I wish I had joined earlier. Even though I have only posted a few questions it's amazing how much positive feedback I have had. Selfishly it really helps to know that you're not abnormal or crazy to feel the way you do and that so many others experience the same and are ready to support you. If anything the reassurance from others on this site has helped loads.

    I'm glad to hear that things are on the up for you. I know only too well how horrible night attacks can be. Fingers crossed for you. I hope you continue the journey to peace of mind.
