Am having a mild panic/ anxiety attack. Maybe I slept too much. I will try to sleep early. How can I deal with this?
Tell your Dr, you said you have difficulty with breathing and swallowing. Maybe he’ll prescribe benzos for anxiety.
When I have a mild anxiety attack I just focus on deep breathing, if I have a major anxiety attack I take 1mg Lorazepam (Ativan), but very rarely cause I don’t want to get hooked on benzos
slow breathing in and out and try to unplug the fear associated with panic and you can beat it entirely…I learned that from therapy and I used to be bad with panic…you can do it…just practice…tell yourself “so what if I have a panic attack, I lived through it and it’s not that bad”.
When I am thinking about the cameras that watch me, I get panic
try to do a mild detachment from your feeling of anxiety, observe it instead of fight the feeling. If you fight it, you stay in the feeling.
Small exercises of mindfulness has helped me a lot.
yea i do same. when i have big attack i take some lorazepam as PRN but i try to not do that often.
I hope I will be okay. Sleeping later tonight. I just ate lunch. If I can might eat something else but early not after 3p. Was trying to take a nap but that did not help.
