Posted , 6 users are following.

I'm having a slight panic/ Anxiety attack this evening. I've had a house full of kids. My mind is just over whelmed with Anxiety. I am doing what I can to calm down but I just can't right this minute. I haven't had one this bad in quite a while. I'm doing what I can to calm my self down.

    Remember if you can positive thinking deep breaths remember to exhale longer than inhaling .. having a house full of kids is stressful for anyone I have three children now I'm constantly overwhelmed & it's way too exhausting when you have to deal with anxiety too xx

      Thank you. Yes I'm doing the breathing thing and trying to relax. The kids have quieted down and are getting ready for bed. So I will be able to fully relax I hope and fall asleep soon hopefully

    I see where a woman's menstrual period can also cause Anxiety.

    Try to shrug it off, distract yourself, sometimes I lie down in a quiet place, and breathe in slowly and out. Get away from the source for now otherwise you'll increase the anxiety. Go on youtube and watch something funny and just start laughing.

    I know how you feel.. seems like I've had one right aafter another for the past week and my children always bring it out most of the time..don't get me wrong they are wonderful. just the level of responsibility causes me to feel overwhelmed at times.. usually what I do is do something to take my mind off my anxiety and that's extremely hard to do in the middle of an attack.. I also have to control my breathing because I will start to hyperventalate . slowly in through your nose and out of your mouth. Sit somewhere quite close your eyes and start your slow breathing making sure your only breathing in through your nose and out of your mouth.. once your heart rate goes Down some go take a hot bath.. or find something that you can do that won't involve to much running around so you can keep your heart rate down. Deep breathing exercises are the only thing that really work for me.. keep your heart rate down by slowing down and breathing. Control it by focusing on it. Also a nice cold glass of water helps too.. have you eaten and had enough water today? If not when you get a little more calm make sure you eat a good meal with a full cup of water.. the more you focus on your anxiety the more difficult it will be to get out of the attack.. you know it's anxiety.. you know you can slow it down when you breath properly.. you know you can help your heart rate decrease by breathing slower and resting. Focus on what you can control..
