    Hi, Antsy:  I hear ya...I've had panic attacks off and on for about 40 years. The first one was when I was at a Christmas play at my daughter's school.  She had a solo at the very end of the program.  I worked myself up so much that I had to go outside and get my breath.  I didn't think too much about that one until I was grocery shopping and my knees began to knock.  I left my cart full of groceries and ran out the door and drove home shaking...I could go on and on.  I can only describe a panic attack as "your own little hell"...I finally found a wonderful doctor who told me that I didn't have to live like that.  She worked with me until she found TWO antidepressants and Xanax that worked together.  It took about a year, but the panic attacks got less and less.  I still have one now and then, but I am trying to learn to cope with one as soon as I feel one coming on. Just keep telling yourself that you ARE NOT DYING and it will go away in a few minutes.  I have also found that taking two bottles of frozen water and roll your bare feet on the cold bottles helps to throw your brian back in place.  I hope this helps, sweetie..Just don't give up or give in to them...They are real, no matter what people say...they are not just in your head and you are NOT going crazy, but you have to work to get them under control...HUGS...and God bless..

    Please go see your gp, stopping it without hos support can be dangerous. You may need a higher dose or a different anti depress. X

      i hope your feeling better also smile anxiety is HORRIBLE some ppl just dont understand. I recently found out i cant get my taxes on my bfs debt card and we need the money for food etc so i freaked out earliar and cried and calmed myself so i wouldn't have a panic attack. i also have derealization which sucks especially when im alone

      Hi Tammi, just wanted to say this happens to me too so you're not alone. The derealisation is the scariest thing in the world to me - and how are you meant to explain that to people? The last panic attack I had was a week ago, I felt like nothing around me was real, I was looking at my mum like she was a total stranger, felt like I was about to blackout, and then afterwards I was just in my own little world for hours.

      Now if I feel one happening, I have an app on my phone with audio guides on it for meditation. I lie down & properly lose myself in the recording and it helps a lot. It's helped so much that I haven't had one since because if I feel an attack coming on I just think "It's ok, I'll go lay down and listen to the audios until I feel better" and then because I'm not scared of the attack, it doesn't come.

      But you're not alone x
