Anxiety Attacks

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm having anxiety attacks this week and just need to get some encouragement. I am working a job that is going to get very fast paced and almost too hard for one person to handle. I have been gluten free for quite a while now and am feeling better, but do the bathroom blues ever go away. I still scope out bathrooms, don't like to work by myself just in case I get an attack. I haven't had an attack for a long time, but the fear of running to the bathroom all the time haunts me. I just hate when my anxieities rule!

I was sick for a good twelve years, and I know everything takes time, so I am hoping I continue to get better.

JenVan - Remember I took that challenge - not to eat anything unless i know it is gluten free - and so far so good. I just want to get past these anxieties.

You guys, keep me in your prayers!

I'm having trouble w/ anxiety as well. I really hate being stuck in traffic. All I can think about is what I will do if I need the bathroom. I have to force myself to think about something else, but sometimes it's impossible. BamBam, hopefully your fast paced job will help keep your mind off a potential attack. I know for me, once I get busy with work I don't think of anything else. Hang in there.

If your lifestye and obligations are getting out of hand,your diet is causing you stress, work schedule and bathroom issuestraffic delays and no bathroom, all causes stress,I would not look the other way about looking into an anti-depresant.

I resisted this for a long time. I reluctantly filled the prescription. I could not have made a better choice for"me". It turn out to be a good thing for me. I cannot attest to others

I am not advocating this, but just stating that I am very pleased with the result that I have had.

I hope that this will be helpful to someone.

God I remember those. They were so bad I would have my kids,

who were really small then, just lay on top of me Until they passed.

They usually started in the car on the way home from work.

Support and mind over matter. Surrounding yourself with things

that make you feel warm and secure. Sometimes I would call a

friend and just talk it away. I liked to talk to my male friends because

they didn't inflate it and make is seem even worse than it was. They

would usually try and make me laugh and it seemed to always work.

Don't worry too much about the little things. Being a perfectionist and

afraid of failure will haunt you and control you instead of helping. Just

soflty tell yourself "It will be ok. I will get it done." But do not look at the

clock or even think about it. Time and fear are all intangible. It is the present

the action and the results that are tangible.

.

Good luck. Listen to your favorite music. Find something

beautiful and peaceful in the moment and focus on it.

Think about all of the wonderful people that completely

understand what you are going thru. Try reading some

these responses when you feel an attack coming on. Think

about how it makes you feel when you read them now.

I will think about you daily.

Bernadette-

I do remember! So so glad you have been doing better finally... Anxiety is a hard thing. Quite a few years back I went through a bout of panic attacks--couldn't sleep, freaked out at night. It was miserable. Thankfully I was able to work through it...with the help of several things. 1. Plainly writing down what I was afraid of and then taking stock of each of them and laying out the facts--like that the things I was anxious about were unrealistic or under control... 2. Calming exercises...I eventually did biofeedback for a bit, and it helped me learn to use breathing exercises (deep breaths) to help calm down an impending attack. As soon as I felt anxiety coming on, I moved to slow breathing and tried to control the thoughts coming into my mind. 3. Friends and familiy who would help me in the moment--being able to tell them of the anxiety helped tremendously. 4. Lots of prayer :) Which you were asking for... So I will do that for you :) These verses were a help too: Cast all your anxiety upon Him for He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 & Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matt.11:30) I am confident that in time you will move out of this place also. Hope this weekend is a start of peace for you!
