On the edge of panic

Difficult day so far, it was never going to be great, how are you supposed to take care of yourself when you can’t share how awful you feel?

Sitting now on the edge of panic, my anxiety levels are rising and rising. Really need to just get this stuff done.

Remembering to breath is key, I guess, and of course the ever present awareness that just sitting with it, and accepting it will keep the panic at bay, it’s taken me 18 months to learn that fighting it just makes it worse.

When does it end? The ever present question, I have a horrid feeling that it never actually ends, that recovery is actually a matter of learning to accept it and manage it.

Perhaps a few minutes of dancing round the office will help…..thank goodness I’m the only one here.

  1. I always try to avoid the phrase ‘I know how you feel’ but I’ve suffered from panic attacks for 5 years now. It might not be the same thing you have, but just wanted to say that you do learn to control the rising panic, and i’ve found out it’s not the end of the world when you get them, not even in public, sending lots of happy thoughs your way!

    The panic does end. As soon as you accept that it’s a part of you, you’ll learn to control it. However, the tests and trials of life never end. They’re never supposed to end. That’s why we live.

    Panic attacks seem to come sometimes when we least expect them. I get them sometimes related to fears I have about being alone. Often I can control them with deep breathing or getting interested in a pleasant activity. I tell myself that if I had a terminal illness, there’s not much I could do about it; but I can learn to control the panic. Sending warm hugs and good thoughts to you.
