Verge of Panic Attack As I Type.. :(

I hate this, I really do. I feel like I'm dying or something. I'm starting to feel light. I hate this so much. Why can't I realize it's all in my head? I took half a xanax, not helping. Help me please. Am I okay?

Re: Verge of Panic Attack As I Type.. :(

natalie, A panic attack is not going to harm you. The release of adrenaline during a panic attack may cause some very unpleasant sensations but you will be fine. Also the xanax will help as well, but even without it you'll still be just fine. One of the big misconceptions is that something terrible is going to happen during a PA - it's not - it's only adrenaline. Just knowing that nothing bad is going to happen has kept some people from having future panic attacks. Write back if you need to. I'll be around for a good while longer. Steve

Re: Verge of Panic Attack As I Type.. :(

Hi Nat, I had one coming this morning too and I knew it was going to be a biggy...I took 2 mgs of ativan and cleaned my house till they kicked in 15 min later.....feel back to normal, but yes they are scary and logic often goes out the window. If I know it's going to be a bad one I take 2 tabs instead of one.
You will be Ok.

Re: Verge of Panic Attack As I Type.. :(

Thanks so much. I'm starting to feel more relaxed now. I've had such a stressful week running on little to no sleep, which often is the cause of panic attacks and anxiety. So glad it's the weekend. I wish anxiety would banish itself from my mind. I should've appreciated being worry free and not fearing for my life at any given moment of the day when I had the chance.

Natalie, Glad to hear you're feeling better now. This anxiety stuff does help to make a person more appreciative of the more normal moments in our life, as you mentioned.
