I just had and am still having a panic attack. I was in the shower, and it hit me. for about 10 seconds, I felt like I was going crazy. I've had panic attacks before. I've self diagnosed myself with GAD. But I've not had one like this. All these thoughts began to rush in my head. :/ Like... What if I'm crazy? What if I start seeing things? What if someone is doing this to me? All these stupid questions. Then i felt relieved but still a bit scared. Now I'm just really exhausted. As I'm typing, I still feel the attack. I'm sick of this. :/ Will a Therapist really help? I think what triggered my anxiety was watching a stupid thing on TV. Their guest was a man that Hypnotized a girl in the show. I've Hypnophobia. While watching, I felt my body go cold and then I felt like I was in a Dream and like I could see myself. I've been doing so well with my anxiety lately. This just makes me so mad. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME. I NEED A DOCTOR. Now I'm just sounding crazy. BUT PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME. I'm honesty begging someone to help me out. I hate medication. I hate it with a Passion. I always drink passionfruit tea when I have a panic attack. Does the same effect Xanax would. UGH. I honestly am angry with myself.
If you are repeatedly having these panic attacks, then yes, a therapist can help you. You need not be on medication. Most panic attacks can be controlled by cognitive behavior therapy. This helps you mould your thoughts such that you can prevent the attack to a great extent. Yoga and meditation are also helpful. Please consult your family doctor immediately and arrange to see a therapist. Take care!
