Panic Attack

I’ve been experiencing an extraordinary amount of panic attacks lately which have been quite damaging to both me and my entire family unit as well.
It’s difficult for someone to truly understand what is going on inside another person’s head and especially when what they are experiencing seems totally abnormal to a normal healthy brain. And I for sure don’t expect anyone to understand what a panic attack actually feels like if you have never experienced one before and boy do I hope you never will.
But either way if you are ever in a situation where someone you care about is having a panic attack try to ease their fear, remind them that they will be okay, encourage them, give them positive affirmations and remember to
stay calm and stay with them if you can. And more importantly do not minimize their feelings even if you think their fear is irrational; judgment and criticism will only make things worse for everyone.

  1. My first panic attack I felt as though I was dying. I was so scared I went to bed and hoped I’d die while I was asleep rather than die in pain. It worked in that the panic attack eventually went, I was still breathing and then was able to research what had happened. I can tell when one is beginning now and do breathing exercises to try and help myself out of them. I hope these don’t become common for you. Hugs šŸ™‚
