That's one of the things I get my medical marijuana for. It isn't so bad any more but I had a hard time right when I was in school. I found keeping myself busy and not cutting myself off from friends, like I did before, was a great help.
((hugs)) you are right to keep yourself busy is how I deal with mine, I don't take anything for mine either, I self-medicate, being with my dogs helps me a lot, after Penny passed, I had one and I have those same symptoms, almost to the point of passing out. Not cool. I am here if you ever need to talk=/
I get the tingling hands, short breathe, heart racing, heart palps, dizzy, upset stomach, eye sparks when you turn your eyes, tense and ANGER! UGH!!!!!!!!!!!
I honestly donot take anything for them..usually being active keeps my mind off thinking about the physical feelings.
I have just been so depressed lately..since both Spazz and Puff were PTS it is nice to know there are others who can relate. sometimes my anxiety and anger gets the better of me..
I love me some Sacramento river!!!OMG I've had the shaking hands, chest pains, and dizzieness so bad I've passed out. My art helps me a lot. Concentrating on a picture or detail in a tattoo gets my mind going in a total different direction. Also I have found long walks with the dogs through the river park is really relaxing and makes me feel good.
Rides on the Harley through Mt. Lassen are also really amazing
yezzur, that is my panic attack trigger too. Death, I have a HUGE fear of it and hieghts...I have full blown panic attacks before I fly so I refuse to ever board a plane after 05' flight. Btw, I have been rushed to the er quiet a bit. when I was 17 I would call the er constantly because of them.. *sigh* they need a cure for that!!!! lolI went to the ER a few times for them. the first time I got it was the worst ever I thought it I was going to die I took a lot of supplements when I used to work out in College and I think one of them messed me up. I almost dropped out of college because I couldn't sleep and I was a total mess. Thankfully I was able to control it, but the reason for all the panic attacks is my fear of dying. I took a philosophy class the year I got them and that class made it worse. I started working out and turning my fear and anxiety into anger at the gym and it drained the anxiety of me. I think my pets really help to keep my levels low.
Two years I went to the Bronx Zoo and I got on one of those suspended cart things that travel across the park and the height messed me up. WHen I got home that night I am guessing the stress from my fear of height triggered it I know what you are going through, just try to avoid caffeine, drugs obviously lol, crowded places and try to get in the gym or go running. If you drain your body from working out you get a nice endorphine boost and that keeps your anxiety very low.
Me and you have pretty much the same fears.. I don't fly for any reason the last time I flew was around 01 and never again lol You can get your weight up quite easily get a pack of muscle milks and have one before you go to bed. If you can't get the cash for muscle milks just get some cottage cheese and have it with some fruit before you go to bed that should fill you up.yezzur, that is my panic attack trigger too.

I am limited to what I can do...I am stuck! Mark was supposed to get a car...his brother him over and he was out 2000...he made the money back and he oes out and BUYS A FLAT SCREEN TV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he is so unmotivating, he would rather sit around and fight with me it is just a :rain: situation..luckily..My mom will be in town sunday so she will help me..she knows how I am..Mark just cusses at me and it makes them worse, He wont let me go for jogs because the area we live in I guess isnt all that nice..he says I never looked for help, Yes I have..it costs money his butt wont part with because f his smoking habit. *Rolls eyes* I donot drink coffee (I hate it) I drink tea sometimes and I tend to try to stay away from sweets..The only reason they popped up was because November was :rain: my 14yr old cat and Spazz being PTS.. went into depression then WHAM mid december Panic attack central! heh..hate those vicious cycles. at this point I am so drained I don't care anymore...they are more annoying then anything
did i mention my BMI is 17? i am also underweight at the moment..not severly about 2-3lbs under so i can't workout riht now until i get my weight back up
If you eat any of that stuff before you go to bed you will gain some weight lol it's funny to hear a girl wanting to gain weight these days. The media has set up young girls to failThe last time I flew was coming back from Florida. the plane dropped abit and I freaked out. LOL!!!!!!!!!! what was scary was the hydrolics to the wheel were jammed so we flew around abit until they got it fixed...nice right? never again!
but you are right..I should be thankful I am not severely sick and I should know that these are panic attacks because since december I have had diffrent symptoms and fears and somedays I have no panic attacks and others I have them. I think we will stick to cottage cheese and we meaning Riley and I. xD she loves her cottage cheese spoon.
I also eat bagals and cream cheese. love bagals!!
