Anxiety manifests in many ways and I know from experience how uncomfortable it is to deal with. From panic attacks and paralyzing fear to sweating and trembling, I've experienced it all and none of it is pleasant! You obviously have a lot on your plate and I commend you for keeping up such a brave face. But you need to express your worries. Burying them down will only lead to eruptions later. Address what your main concerns are with whomever you wish-- a stranger on a message board or a close friend you know personally--- either way, you need to get the concerns out. Then create some sort of action plan that works for you. I personally write everything down. Lots of lists. This way it's off my mind and out on paper so I don't have to worry about forgetting all the things I need to do. I make sure to keep my spirits up by working out and watching comedy shows or my favourite movies. The important thing to remember is that doing the best you can is all that is expected of you. Take it day by day.
This stinks! I used to get like that! EXACTLY like that. I'd call those panic attacks. I got over those though. Just kinda grew out of the panic attacks. Now I wish that's all I had was panic attacks bc they go away within a short period of time. Even though you just want to relax and not be scared. You just got to remember to ride it out and don't be scared. Hot showers helped me. If the keep up go see a dr. There are little things like Benzos you can take if panic starts to arise. I'm not talking about Xanax. Just some little and harmless if taken right like Ativan. Or Klonopin. Or sometimes antidepressants work for some people too. Hang in there it's ONLY anxiety. It can't harm you.
I get the horrible shaking/trembling feeling everytime I have a panic attack, and I even get it sometimes just when my anxiety is getting a little high. My jaw chatters like mad when I'm having an attack too, and I hate it. Cnote and BeeFree gave good advice, and you should definitely talk to your doctor if things get any worse or the attacks don't go away. Some people can take care of it on their own, but many need medication and therapy to get through it. Talk to your doctor and decide what's best for you, and just know you're not alone in feeling this way!
this change for me is so crazy.. im pretty independent..hard worker..leader..go getter type of person.. and i felt i was great all alone..no problem... but since ive been having these episodes i feel like a scared child..im a little afraid to go far from home..or be too far from a hospital..like if im near an adult ..mostly like my mother..i feel less anxiety...i find it even more scary to have an episode and be alone...thank you all for the advice im in tears right now just knowing im not the only person whos experienced this feeling...i have a doctors appointment today..ill def keep you updated on the results..thanks again...=)
I'm the same way...if I'm around my mom I usually feel much less anxious. Whenever I do have a panic attack she's usually the first person I call. I'm also scared to be too far from hospitals and home, though I'm trying to fix that by going on road trips. Hang in there, I hope everything goes well with the doctor!
