I suffer from high anxiety/panic attack from time to time. (Page 3)
swampandfire: well headphones might help and this is unethical (at work) but alcohol in moderation. if you do drink don't drink spirits or wine stick with beer. the hit is softer and that could be important. but be weary if it overpowers you (the anxiety) you could find yourself in trouble. more trouble.

swampandfire: mental health really is a difficult path to navigate for so many reasons. the only advice i would give is try and be as honest as you can. its the stuff superhero's are made of.
livesonlovestreet: All i can say is.. i pray ..that you find relief . I have dealt with anxiety for years. And the panic attacks. .. a couple years ago i was having them daily. They would last for hours sometimes..and reach level 10 i'd tap out and go 911 ..=/ im not stupid i knew. What it was ... and told myself its just your mind youre okay... ride it out. Fight or flight bs. Lol but even knowing that. The mind is so powerful. You just feel like. Its death. What HELPED me. Xanax. And or the ativan shot but that not the best ..way to go. Exercise .. honestly. Baths or showers. Watching youtube panic attack remedy videos. . And honestly knowing if youve been battling it for an hour. Dontcha think youd be dead by now ? I even saw.. a yoga guru. Who specialized in anxiety and panic disorders... he told me. And anyone suffering from it... you do not have an anxiety issue you have a grief issue. And that comes in many many different forms not just death of loved ones. Could be. Death of inner dreams? ... job / or... anything really. He was dead on. Im sorry i have no. Easy..fixes. but i truly hope you can get. A handle on it. I havent had a panic attack in.. months. Knock on wood . God bless

theHating: Thanks, now I don't have to blow rando guys at a truck stop tonight! You saved my lips, asshole, and teeth!
Live_By_Common_Sense: Since I really do not know my triggers. Wearing the ear phones and playing music does not calm my anxiety, but it makes me think that my anxiety will not be triggered. Its just a state of mind. But my anxiety been triggered before even with my headphones on.
Selfishness: Hi! Two things that I’ve done to cause myself to start to feel some anxiety are (1) I prevented myself from trusting myself, and (2) I worried about one or more other people’s thought(s) about me. To stop feeling my anxiety, I began to trust myself more, and I stopped worrying by practicing apathy. I didn’t need to pay any money or to talk to any professionals because self-trust and apathy cost me 0$.
I don’t know about the society that you’ve been living in, but I’ve been living in the US society, which isn’t based on total trustworthiness, and this lack of total trustworthiness has been a cause of some of my anxiety. To feel less anxiety, I’ve learned to start using more apathy toward this society.
Have you thought about self-trust and/or apathy?
Live_By_Common_Sense: Selfishness I am going to try not giving in to others emotion, or how others views/sees me. I am going to try the apathy you are talking about. Because I am just at my job for money and nothing more. Do not want to make friends, and do not want to make enemies. But I will always keep that friendly vibe and greet and say goodbyes without ever worrying how people will react towards me and when they walk away. Thank you selfishness because I do need to be selfish at times to have a more healthier mindset.
AretoNyx: I had those but more in my youth. I however had to start taking meds prescribed. Hopefully it is temporary.
I doubt my husband understands such but at least he is not being to much of a jerk about it.
