Panic Attack --- Help!

Posted by on Aug. 11, 2012 at 7:35 PM

I've been dealing with panic attacks for years now (about 10 years now). Normally they are really bad for just a short time (half hour to hour at most) but today I just can't shake it. For about 6 hours now I've had a tight chest, hard to breath, shaky feeling, even moments of being light headed and black spots (its so bad I thought I was going to pass out). I'm hot and swetty. I just can't git rid of the damn thing. I've tried yoga, reading a book, watching a movie. Everything I can think of and I can't get rid of it. I'm out of ideas. I don't know what to do. Any sugestions? Help please.

I am sure you have already tried but taking long, deep breaths usually helps me. Hope you find something that works.

Normal stress. Money, bills, etc. We're moving in 6 weeks so I'm freaking out about not having the money for the prorated week in the new place. Stupid things. We'll have the money by then so there's no reason to stress but I just can't let it go.

I'd love one, but since dhs bro is a recovering alcoholic we dumped the last few beers we had a month ago (when he came out that he had a drinking problem). and now dh is at work with the car and I can't go get any.

Thanks. I have no insurance :( I used to have a script for xanax but with no insurance I couldn't see a doc anymore. it's been 3 years and i'd been able to mange them but i've never had one this bad.
