I had a panic attack last week.
Panic attacks are not fun, mine are silent though. No one can see them, or notice them. You would be suprised, I had it at church. I don't have them a lot. But, when I do, I can't breathe. It feels like my throat is closing. My heart is pounding so fast, it feels like it's going to pop out of my chest. I get cold, like really cold, to the point I feel all white.
What are your panic attacks from? What are your panic attacks like?
I ahd them a lot throughout high school, now not so much. It's normally around large crowds. I remember when I went to stagecoach 2017, and I lost out on seeing Willie Nelson because I felt trapped in the crowd. I looked and saw no way to get out. I started to panic. A panic attack. So, I left. (Please, allow me to see Willie Nelson once.)
But, not the point.
I want to give you things on how to handle this. Because, when I was in high school, I felt every panic attack, and then I would cut. Just to calm me. There are other things you can do.
Breathe slowly. Count to ten and just breathe. Breathe in, breathe out.
Feel your heartbeat. This helps me out a lot. When I have a panic attack, I almost feel numb. So, I put my hand on my chest to remind myself I'm still alive.
I also I keep reminding myself that I am loved by Christ. I am who I am, and He places me in certain situations to teach me. It's okay.
I persoanlly don't struggle with panic attacks too much. If you are one who does, know that I am praying for you. You can message me anytime. I would love to talk to you and pray for you.
