Panic Attacks, we meet again.

I’m angry at myself. I’m disappointed with myself. I’m sad. I’m frustrated. I’m just so tired. So anxious. So… I don’t even know anymore.

  1. V, don’t beat yourself up!
    You are probably still in the grieving cycle. Then you already have other concerns in your life, so panic attacks will happen.
    Remember, just take a deep breath and exhale slowly.
    Will be thinking of you friend!

  2. V, I had a panic attack put in the ER last night. It’s been years! I was humiliated and upset with myself, too. Set backs happen. It’s part of the beast. Lots going on for everyone, you have added stuff on top of it. Panic attacks are the body and mind’s way of expressing exhaustion and overwhelm. One day at a time. Second by second when that’s needed. β™₯

    1. I’m sorry that you had a panic attack and that you had to go to the ER. It’s not a fun situation to be in, I know all too well. Sending you love and strength. These are weird times.

  3. This might sound goofy, but sit quietly, breathe deeply and stare into your third eye (between your brows). Sit for as long as you can maintain steady breathing. Say to yourself, “I am not my body, and I am not my mind”. Try to imagine connection to the universe, this is the true self you must find. I will be giving you strength with my energy. Take care and really try. People love you.

    1. It’s actually not the news that’s really been causing it. It’s the family fighting over my dead uncle’s money. But I do appreciate the advice, thank you for the wisdom.

      1. It’s horrible for family to fight over money, and sadly it’s money that tears family apart. Hopefully, your family is able to settle the issue. That’s gotta be hard, especially during a time when we need more emotional support than ever. Take a day or two to step away from the drama to do some self-care, whether that’s taking a walk outside, painting your nails, or finding a quiet place that you can call β€œparadise.”

  4. Hugs, dear Vee. ❀️ I know you are beating yourself up, and I understand because I do it to myself too, but please don’t judge the panic attack. You’ve enough to put up with it. It’s ok to be ill. It’s ok to have panic attacks. It’s not a comment on you as a person or your abilities. You are under a huge amount of stress and grieving. I know it’s the hardest thing to do at times like this, but please be kind to yourself. ❀️

  5. Today I thought: so many people around the world are starting to learn what anxiety and depression actually feel like; here’s hoping that this makes everyone more empathetic and reduces mental illness stigma. Feel your feelings, then practice all the self-care you can think of.

    1. This is probably really true. I hope that you’re right, that it does help reduce the stigma around mental illness and the struggles that people feel… the very real troubles they face.

      Thank you

  6. This isn’t your fault. You’re doing your best to navigate some shitty times. Panic and anxiety are to be expected. If you need to talk let me know and I can dm you my email, okay? No pressure. Just know that you’re never alone. πŸ’›

    1. You’re a kind soul. I’m more of a bottle it up and pour it out in vague posts on my blog type. But, I will take your email address if you want to give it to me. That way the next time I’m in your neck of the woods (post pandemic) maybe we can meet up for a bloggers lunch or something.

      1. As long as you have an outlet. That’s key for survival in my book. 😊 I’ll message you through your site so you have my email address. Have a great Sunday!

  7. Listen to soothing / meditative / spiritual music to calm your nerves down. It’s perhaps the grief coming up differently. Don’t be hard on you…it’s OK to feel all that…but then remember to let it be…it’ll dissolve….much love

  8. We’re all behind you, Vee. The combination of the relentless news about the international crisis and your family’s recent personal tragedy has put you under extraordinary pressure, and there’s absolutely no need to beat yourself up over this. You haven’t let yourself – or anyone else – down. Thinking of you ❀

  9. Hey Vee! Try not to beat yourself up over a relapse into anxiety and panic. There is a lot of scary in the world right now. I’m right there with you, trying to keep my depression at bay. Like someonesaid in another comment, that means I’m stepping away from the news and the internet and focusing on other things. You will overcome!

  10. Mother F~ing panic is so rude and unthoughtful, showing up uninvited and being an ass hat. Well, well well, you’re messing with the wrong chick, V is going to kick your ass because she is strong and mighty with one of the biggest hearts on this F~ed up planet.

  11. It’s so natural to feel this way with what you’ve got going on. Be gentle with yourself. You have a great supportive bunch on here who believe in you. This too shall pass, promiseπŸ˜‰πŸ™Œ
