These last couple days have been hard. I had three panic attacks in one day and I’m used to having panic attacks I’ve had anxiety for many years. Although I’m not sure what disorder I have, but if I had to guess it would either be panic disorder or generalized anxiety.

      Hi hennessy! I’ve had a really hard week too i just got over being sick and i get my period in a few days so my anxiety is through the roof, i feel so hopeless whenever i have an anxiety attack or when i have a panic attack out of no where and i always feel like it’s never gonna go away, and feel like nothing ever helps but the other night when i had a panic attack out of no where and felt like i couldn’t breathe something that honestly really did help me was going on youtube and looking up “stopping a panic attack” video, it guides u through some breathing exercises and then u shut ur eyes and just listen to the video and it stopped my panic attack and let me fall asleep,, i know it sounds stupid and ur prob thinking omg that’s not gonna work for me but i usually think the same thing but i tried it and it really did help so much! i hope that helps a little

      Putting anything cold on your head, ESPECIALLY THE BACK OF YOUR NECK, leaning forward, holding your breath, and closing your eyes triggers the mammalian dive reflex we all have. It lowers heart rate and will automatically calm down

        @Maddawg I think holding my breath raises my heart rate and I don’t think it’s a good idea since I have asthma.

      It can be really hard. I’ve dealt with my anxiety since I was in the 3rd grade and wasn’t taken seriously until sophomore year of high school. The best thing I’ve found is to stand up, put your hands above your head, and breath. Try breathing in at 10(deep breath), breathe out, then breath in deeply again with 9, and go until you hit 1. Do you know if anything is triggering you or is it just random?

        @Magee sometimes it can be random, but a lot of times there is something triggering me. It’s a little bit of both.

          @Hennessy I normally don’t like to recommend medications but my doctor put me on meds to take at the sight of a panic attack or before you feel it come on. It might help to talk to your doctor about that possibility :)
