    Default panic attacks

    so ive noticed recently, like in the past few months i guess, but mostly the past month in particular, ive been having panic attacks like all the fucking time.

    not like full blown black-out panic attacks, but slight ones, where i can manage to sit down and stop what i'm doing and calm myself down before it gets worse.

    but the thing is I can figure out why i keep having panic attacks... i'm not all that stressed out, i dont have a whole lot on my mind, im not all that busy. i cant even tell what's setting them off... like i'll just be walking to class and suddenly freak the fuck out about nothing.

    its more just a hassle and annoying to deal with than anything, anyone have any advice for calming myself down? or any ideas why this might be happening?

    as for frequency of it, it seems to happen maybe every few days to multiple times a day.

    Have you changed anything physically? Like sleep patterns, caffeine, something youre eating, etc.

    I was real sick a while ago and it was causing me to have bad anxiety

    freak out like how?

    i have panic attacks and bad anxiety. prescribed xanax for when times get rough. but i have parts of my arm go numb, or shake, sometimes feel faint; on top of all the mental anxiety. i'm also agoraphobic too though.

    breathing is really helpful. its funny how many people don't know how to breathe properly. take deep breaths and try to clear your mind or focus it on some mundane thought or thing.

    just don't confuse panic attacks with mental stress... your doctor if you have one can probably tell you whats up if you can describe all your symptoms.

    Thats what acid does to ya.
    Probably not. Its most likely some kind of disorder that medicine can heal.

    Smoking cigs and drinking a lot of caffeine really fucks with my anxiety.

    especially more so if you start at an early age.

    i mean i smoke and drink alcohol and caffeine but ive been doing that for who knows how long... and this hasnt happened until recently. i havent really changed anything about my behavior or sleeping patterns or anything. and im not stressed at all.

    breathing does help, thats how i get through most of them. i just breathe deep for a couple minutes and i feel okay. it just happens so frequently (two or three times today) and its just a hassle to deal with all the time.

    i dont have health insurance or anything... i might be able to go to the health center here but i dont think they'll be able to prescribe anything for me.

    this maybe it. When my friend got canceled from his insurance, he started freaking out. Stopped skating, stopped going out, he also pretty depressed at the time.

    I also have mild anxiety. For me it gets hard to breathe, like i'm choking, and freezing at the same time.

    Might be because you took 10 hits of acid.

    That's sorta a repreration from that.

    Repreration, pretty sure I made that word up, or spelled it wrong.

    it's been happening since before i did that... i was thinking that it was cause ive been taking a lot of drugs lately, but i rarely feel panicy on drugs... and ive also cut back since i took all that acid. i havent done any drugs since then, aside from drinking a couple times.

    Yes but you've been doing hallucinogens for some time now, or maybe I'm making that up in my mind. It's probably part of it, along with other life experiences.

    Yup. Things will just change. It could be sudden, it could be gradual. My recomendation is to see a doctor, though I understand with you being in college and health insurance that's kinda hard.

    if i have some free time this week, i may stop by the health center. i have fridays off so that might be a good time to go. i just always feel dumb going to doctors, when theyre like "whats wrong?" and im like "uh... im having panic attacks, but they're not really panic attacks.." like i just feel like they never really know what im talking about.

    also i feel like a dumbass being like "oh yeah i took ten hits of acid and generally take hallucinogens every couple weeks..." then its like why the fuck should they help me, this is my own damn fault.

    i did notice today that theyre usually brought on by nausea, like usually after i eat, even if i just have a bagel or something, i'll start to feel sick and that will bring on a panic attack.

    Lay off the drugs for a while they will disappear over time. When i smoked pot all day everyday over a number of years i ended up with panic attacks and alot of anxiety.

    I stopped for a few months and they disappeared and haven't come back since. Obviously hallucinogens and cannabis are slighlty different but maybe the same applys.

    The problem is probably in your abdominals. I would recommend doing 5 minutes of crunches at least 3 times a week.

    He's probably living at some really old rich guy's mansion in North Philly as his sex servant.

    There's a "gayborhood" but it's more like a collection of gay-friendly establishments, not necessarily full of gay people living there. And yeah heroin can end a lot of people, if not physically then mentally (not in a going crazy kind of way, just in a you'll never be able to live a normal life kind of way).
