  1. Hi, my name is Noah I'm 17 and I am really confused to say the least as to why this is happening. Hormonally I've been the most normal teenager you could ask for, no outbursts no emotional problems but for some reason as soon as this past year started I got a panic attack in the middle of class. At the time I didn't know what it was it just felt like my heart stopped and the room started getting blurry and I got dizzy, the normal symptoms. After the first one they would come once a day and then the next week they would come twice a day and then etc. 3 months later they're constant throughout the day they just come in waves and I've tried Xanax it doesn't help too much, CBD. I don't know my triggers. Public places and places I'm not familiar with make me anxious but they often happen for no reason. I haven't tried a lot of methods of coping. I was wondering if you guys could give me some insight as to why these started happening and what I can do to help them. Thanks

  3. So I’ve been back at university for a week now and it’s been very different. I do an acting degree which is possibly the most emotionally/physically diverse course you can think of. I am in my third year so they have turned up the heat. Last week I was in 9 hours everyday and was not even home in the evenings because I had assessment and social engagements. Lord almighty I was busy. Things slipped. I didn’t do my washing up, tidy my room, wash my clothes and I cried at the end of the second day back because I foresaw the next ten weeks as being as stressful as my first two days. I’m now in my second week back and the flow has already changed. Today I had a half day and tomorrow I have off. How amazing. This weekend I tidied my room and did all my washing and even took up crochet, a leisure activity I hope will help in my thinky thinky times I sometimes have that stop me sleeping. Ive done some really positive things despite my stress, including contacting my university council long service because I realise, even though I feel like I’m entering a good space right now, ignoring the bad moments that have happened will only suppress them. Even if I feel good, I need explanation for the bad times. Im also finding new dynamics in my relationships with people. I realise I won’t be able to see my boyfriend heeps this term because I have a full timetable but I’ve made it a positive, I normal have trouble sleeping without him because my brain starts wandering but I want to use these opportunities to train myself out of that. I’ve been spending quality time with my housemates, playing board games and having a drink which makes me feel secure in our home. I’ve been honest and sharing with my parents which makes me feel better about the fragile states I sometimes get in to. I do feel positive now and I’ll enjoy it, for as long as I can. I never plan to fall back into the hole but the next time I do, I hope I read back on this post and remember that good times can be had and I appreciated this moment in my life right now. Best health and happiness to you all, I’llbefineintheend x
  4. I am so frustrated. I have suffered anxiety in a strange way my entire life. I do not have anxiety attacks. I have anxiety "weeks". I am not even sure I am not sick or something. But each of these are like a cold or a flu, BUT they are clearly due to anxiety. Usually they are triggered by a flight or fight thing and then it is as if I cannot shut it off. Ativan used to really knock it in the bud but this time, it isn't working. This is what occurs... something sets off my fight or flight. Stressful thing, stressful day... in this case... medication. 24 hours pass and I feel like ok, it is getting better. But it does. Typically at this point I spend 1-2 days trying everything to get it under control. Taking Ativan, Magnesium, trying to rest. But nothing works. Finally after being at my wits end. I go to the ER. Where upon... everything comes back normal and I am sent home.. typically it is at this point that I wake up the next day feeling back to normal. I suspect it is just a coincidence.... that it just takes about a week to resolve and this is typically about a week. It is hard to describe. It feels like I am breathing all the time.. like my chest has bubbles. Though objectively I know I am breathing fine... my respiration is the same... I can go to the gym... it feels odd and wrong. I feel unreal... like I am walking in mud... and I feel oddly tired like I want to sleep. Nothing seems to stop it. Working on my breathing... Ativan etc. I suspect maybe what does stop it is that I get distracted by something else. Does anyone else have this kind of thing? I have to find out what this is. And how to stop it. It can destroy my focus and destroy anything I am trying to do and I so want to stay out of work... I know I am ok this time. I actually went to the doctor this week and not only did she listen to my chest and check me out, she took some blood tests which all came back normal.
  5. Right, basically I've been suffering with anxiety for 6 months, I got plpitations one night after no sleep I was taking to hospital cause I think I was having a heart attack thought my heart would stop and that I was going to die. Ever since I feel my Pulse like ten times a day, I pinch myself to make sure I'm still alive, I can't sleep, be by myself, or stay over someone's house. It's really affected mine and my bra relationship. I don't know what to do. I'm in constant fear. I don't go out with my mates or drink anymore. Everyday I'm thinking when's it gonna happen again it's so scary. What can I do? I went to a therapist but she only made me upset all the time I feel so hopeless
  6. I usually have a panic between 2-4 times a month. Although, there have been times when it was about 4 times a week. It really depends on many factors. My mood has a lot to do with my panic attacks, if I don't have a job I will panic almost everyday. When I have something to keep my mind busy, I have less panic attacks. How often are you in the clutches of panic?
