I've been getting them all of a sudden. I always thought it was fake.
I suffer from anxiety...all work related though, especially near the end of a quarter, and when I fly.
I keep a bottle of Xanax within reach at all times.
No, but I've been seriously thinking of faking them just to get some Xanax.
No it's real . I went through a divorce and a death in the same year and got them . I got on meds for about a year and a half and now I'm fine .
It's real shit . I got so bad I would lay on the floor after taking a shower knowing I had to go into work . It was a struggle to even get out of my car to go into my favorite cd/comic store at the time and it's a place I love .
Get some help . You can get over it . I'm totally fine now .
I never thought it was real until it happened to me .
This comes up every so often. Here:
1) You are not nuts or alone in theses attacks. Millions have them.
2) GO SEE A DOCTOR. Meds will help.
3) Don't come here asking med advice. lol
No coincidence this topic cropped up on a Sunday night.
what's going on in your life that may have triggered them?
I had them for several months after the birth of each of my kids. Totally out of nowhere and hit me like a ton of bricks each time. I thought it was bogus till it happened to me but it's no joke. Meds for a brief period of time helped. Honestly just knowing I could take the meds made them stop.
Yeah same here. I don't get panic attacks just bad anxiety at times. Mostly work related. Trying to build up the nest egg for FU money/early retirement fund.
I got them in my early twenties. I would get such bad anxiety that I thought I was going to throw up. Then the fear of an attack coming on would trigger one. I would get them in situations where I could not quickly extricate myself like being in a car, on a plane, or in a meeting for work. I think depression and anxiety go hand in hand. I was miserable with my work and living situation at the time.
20 years and counting.
Sorry that happened to you. The honesty is refreshing.
The fucking human condition, eh. Ain't it grand?
I think it is all psychosomatic. But it is very real. I'm hyperventilating as we speak. Nothing brought it on again. I get them for no reason.
True, we cannot dish out medical advice, see a doctor.
But you can ask for help on how to cope, thats fine, just no Med advice.
Exactly right. I followed this advice and am enjoying life much more. Sunday night would cripple me as I would dread having to leave home and go to work in the AM.
No shit Dawg.
It is bizarre to experience. I have been fine my whole life.
