Living with Anxiety

Traumatized or not?

So lately I’ve just been stressed, lack of sleep, just been a mean person to people. And I do believe in karma. So anyway last night while I was having a good time, I got up and felt like I was running out of air. It truly felt like I was sucking on a vacuum cleaner. My cousin let me use his breathing machine bc I felt like I needed more air, it did calm me down. But I don’t know why I’m fearful and look at things in a different light. Bc I felt like I was gonna die forreal. I even texted my bf that I love him and to take care of our dogs etc. and then just waking up not too long ago, I just feel nervous and can’t walk very far when I had to take my dogs out to potty. I’m lucky to still be breathing, but please tell me that someone out there knows exactly what I’ve experienced?

It sounds like you are experiencing panic attack’s.

You are probably hyperventilating. Breathing in a brown paper bag is good for calming you down.

So I experienced a really bad hyperventilation? I usually have those and kinda used to those but this one really scared the shit outta me. Like I was drowning and I couldn’t get air? But I was obviously breathing if I was texting my bf. And I was tense and my leg was shaky... horrible experience

Hello

I do agree with Bird it sounds like a panic attack and they are so frightening when they happen , it does feel like this will be it but once they reach their peak they have to eventually come back down and I hope yours is starting to do just that

Bird again is so right , having a paper bag and breathing in and out of it is an old fashioned method but does work in regulating you breathing and getting it to steady back down to normal again

I hope it has helped a little to know we do know what you are talking about and we have felt the same way to and you are not alone :-)

Take Care x

Hello :-)

You are certainly not on your own at all so many in these Communities have or do experience how you feel , keep talking and the more people will relate the less alone you will feel :-) x
