So yesterday I was subconciously thinking about my Panic Attack that I had Monday and I guess I worked myself up as by the time I collected my wife from work it kicked in big time.
All of the common symptoms that everyone speaks about on here, Hypoventilating, Heart beating out of chest to the extent that I could see it in my eyes and feel my body moving with it. Real sense of dread.
The wife drove me straight up to A&E as I failed to control my breathing properly and I nearly passed out. I had the usual general observations, ECG's and Bl;ood tests and they all came back normal. It was an absolutely terrifying experience when it happened and I somewhat feel ashamed looking back at it now even though I couldn't help it at the time.
Today I am doing my upmost to use the experience to my advantage in beating panic attacks. Knowing how bad I actually felt now but more so what the doctor told me about me having a perfectly good, strong heart and great lungs etc. I know now and I am going to keep this is in my head whenever I feel anything triggering. I know I am ok, the doctors have proven to me that I am ok. This is all I need to remember.
I feel for everyone who feels how I did last night, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. I'm determined that I am not going to allow this thing to get it's grip on me. I am generally strong in will power and I am not about to stop now.
