What are ways that you come down from an anxiety attack when you're by yourself. For context, my professor saw me crying and I basically told him that I wasn't mentally in the best condition and I feel so embarrassed because now he knows. I've been pretending for so long that everything was okay. He wants to meet with me today and I get scared thinking about what he wants to talk about I just wish I I knew what he was going to talk about so I can be prepared. I asked a friend to come with me so I do feel little bit better about it but still feel anxious and I’m trying to quiet the intrusive thoughts that tell me to just isolate and stay home.

      Talking about for me at the time just makes it worse. I'd explain that to anyone else who is concerned about you.

      It's ok to feel that way. That he knows just remember that you were going through something at that time. And that's okay. Don't beat yourself up about it this could turn out to be a positive be experience with your professor. After all they are educated😁 just being b silly but seriously don't be so hard on yourself. 🤗

      I usually take deep breaths I learned through the meditation app and try to ask your self are you really in immediate danger. And see if that helps

        @Shaba I just finished my headspace meditation and I don’t feel as anxious as I did before, and you’re right I’m not in real danger, I’m gonna be okay

      Physical activity helps me quiet intrusive thoughts something like yoga, it's mind and body alignment, walks playing music and drinking tea all helps me watch an episode or two of your fav shows
