I suffer from high anxiety/panic attack from time to time. (Page 3)
swamp99: 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.

swamp99: 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
