Good Morning, My Dear Friends. I hope this post finds you all well today.
You may or may not have noticed, but I stayed off the radar for a day yesterday because of Monday night, I was stricken down by one of the worse panic attacks I have in several years. There is a thin line between an anxiety attack (that I normally get) and the panic attack that I endured the other night.
All the symptoms listed above was what I went through for close to four hours straight, and no matter what I did seemed like it was actually failing me.
I’m not quite sure what triggered it per say, but when it got hold of me it took a long time for me to come down from it. In fact, I think I ended up passing out from it. I practiced mindfulness, breathing techniques, and visualization but even that was not working. I just kept praying to God for it to pass because I wasn’t so certain it was panic I was going through. I had my phone close by to call 911, but again I kept repeating over and over again, ‘You’re just having an attack, it will pass, it will pass, you’re gonna be okay, you’ll be fine.’
It’s Wednesday morning, and I still feel like a tractor-trailer ran me down. I stayed in bed pretty much the entire day yesterday because of nothing but pure exhaustion and being so sore from clenching down, and I woke up this morning still feeling worn out.
When self-talk and other coping skills don’t seem to be doing the job, what do you do? Again, during an anxiety attack, I can pretty much get back some control, this panic attack was an entity that went from 0 to 60 MPH to the point of passing out from it. I really am curious, what happens or what do you do when self-talk and coping doesn’t seem to work for you?
Today, I’m going to continue to rest and post here and there, but for the most part, I see myself resting for a majority of the day to try and shake this feeling of exhaustion away.
Take Care & God Bless,
