The other day I had a really bad panic attack, it came seemingly out of no where but it was horrible 🙁 I couldn’t get my breath, I was crying hysterically and after I had finally calmed down I felt so so ill! I was shaky, I felt sick and I had an awful headache.

Can anyone help me? Does anyone have any advice on how they manage/control their panic attacks and what I can do to make myself feel better afterwards?

This is only a short blog, just thought I would reach out because I don’t know what to do anymore, everything I try doesn’t seem to work and the next one always seems to be worse that before 🙁

If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it, Thank you <3

    Hi Jessiie
    I experience anxiety attacks as well. What I have found helpful is doing a course in cbt on aware.ie to help me understand my triggers- I had alot of internal dialogue that preceeds my attacks. Like yourself I was sure that they were coming out of nowhere but from doing the course I learned that thoughts can cause powerful bodily reactions in us. Like if you think of something sad you will cry. Likewise if you are catastrophising or worrying about a stressful situation or relationship you might notice your body is tense and your breathing becomes shallow. At this point I find breathing exercises very helpful in stopping it from turning into a panic attack. I slowly breathe in for 4, hold for 4 and then breathe out for 8. All as slow as possible. I have found this so helpful and it costs nothing. Hope you find something that works for you 🙂

      Thank you, this is really helpful I’ve never tried breathing exercises so I will try it, hopefully it won’t be for a while yet!

    Also Jessiee try not to worry about them happening. Panic can’t hurt you, it will escalate so far and your body will eventually start to reulate itself. Sometimes the fear of them happening is more damaging than anything else.
