      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Anxiety/Panic attacks

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My name is Ebony and I lost my mom on 12/4/2016 to Cancer (Multiple Myeloma). It just seems like ever since she does I haven't been myself. Recently, I've been having panic attacks. The first time I had a panic attack I was very scared and I thought I was dying. It was the longest night of my life even though it didn't last too long. I finally calmed down and I went to sleep and then it happened again a few nights later (they always seem to happen at night). I miss my mom so much. She was my best friend. Any suggestions on how to handle panic attacks?

Hello Ebony, I'm very sorry for your loss. You are not alone, I too started having anxiety and a few panic attacks after my mum passed away, seems to be part of the grief process. I don't have much advice, can only tell you how I'm dealing with mine.  I went and saw my GP who prescribed anti depressants, however I have suffered from recurrent depression for many years and it just happened that my mum passed while I was off the meds so inevitably I had to be put back on them. GP also prescribed medication for the anxiety but after reading up on them I decided I didn't want to be dependent on that so I'm trying the alternative route and got myself some Kalms lavender capsules, they are natural and have helped me a great deal, my anxiety is now at a level where it's not stopping me from going about my day. Hope you feel better soon, sending a hug your way x

I have been having major anxiety as well - I keep reliving the last couple days of my mom's life, and flashing back - and I am just panicked. Exercise has been helping me, as well as yoga/meditation. But some days I feel like I'm climbing an uphill battle against the anxiety. Hang in there!
