    Ice chips are great. Carry around water. Heat and anxiety dont mix.

    Hi unfortunately it is quite normal. Weather change affects our bodies and triggers our anxiety more. Happens to me every year sadly. Hang in there. ..

    Even after successful therapy and over 7 years symptom-free I STILL get panicky in the heat of the summer. Noone is comfortable in the heat and those of us prone to anxiety always feel the discomfort more. Sips of cool water, wetting the head, scalp and neck frequently and staying in shaded areas or airconditioned facilities during the hottest hours of the day help. Frequent showers and anything that helps keep you calm.Chamomile tea helps me a little. Ice tea too. A salty snack to help you rebalance all the salts lost through sweat may help when feeling dizzy or light-headed. I live in the mediterranean and temperatures go way higher than this with humidity levels making it almost impossible to breathe. At least your summers in Scotland won't last 5 months like here smile Wishing you an easy summer! I also hope you are sleeping a little better now?

      So happy to hear. I don't know you but hearing about your sleepless nights and knowing what a mess lack of sleep can make I really felt bad for you. My husband has recently been sleepless for about 3 weeks due to severe illness and your story crossed my mind a few times. And don't worry about going to the ER. We have all done it several rounds of times over smile Don't worry about the heat. Just remember that you survived before and will make it again. Wishing you all the very best!
