Anxiety Attack all night.

Posted , 3 users are following.

Had a huge attack last night triggered by an anxious thought, lasted all night and couldn't shake it off, actually slept for 3 hours but woke and kicked off again. My wife made me take a diazepam this morning after I broke down in floods of tears.

Horrible horrible horrible... Was speaking to mental health professional last night and she said if I get another acute anxiety episode irrespective if what caused it and having taken a diazepam it doesn't subside I should go to A&E and let them treat it as it's considered an emergency, especially if I have thoughts of harming myself (which I did, I felt like sticking a knife through my hand but didn't as I knew it was silly and self distructive, plus I'm a drummer)! 

Feeling very tired and on edge.

      Thanks sugarloaf, Lesley, it was awefull felt all was lost. 

      When I get an acute attack my head and thought process goes completely out the window and I actually believe I've "gone" and won't recover.

      I'll put a post up about my anxiety and what it focuses on until I start to recover, I'm going to get some more CBT councelling and discuss it.
