Help me please!!
    #1823022 - 08/17/03 04:23 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Recently, I have been feeling really upset all the time. I had avoided parties and stuff like that for a while, just because I wasnt in the right frame of mind to enjoy them.
But it was my friends birthday this weekend, so I went to her party.
I was OK at first, but as more people arrived and it got going, I started too feel like I couldnt breathe and I was boiling up.
So I left, but I was in the middle of nowhere, so all I could do was walk around for a bit. I was shaking a lot and it took ages for me to calm down.
I dont know why that happened really. And I dont know what has made me so down.
I just need to get some sort of release from it all.
Does anyone has any advice??

I often have little episodes and get really sad for a while.
But every1 does. Thats life, as you said.
This has been going on for about 3/4 months, but it's got a lot worse recently.
What bugs me is that I dont know what's brought it on. So if i try to explain it to anyone, they dont seem to get it cos I cant explain it.

Sounds like a Panic attack to me...
I've had terrifying Panic Attacks for the past 5 months
after a shroom incident....in fact....... AAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
there.......just let it happen.... :grin:
seriously tho, I've had some major terrifying panic attacks.
It's the fear of loss of control, and not knowing what's
going on makes it feal worse and compounds to the problem
and convinces u that u're going Nuts. But basically, u'll
be happy to know that Panic Attacks can't really hurt u,
u're not going to lose control at all, and u can't possibly
go nuts. Just these facts help alleviate panic attacks considerably.
Read some books on Panic Attacks from Amazon (a popular but
rather egotistical book i read is Power over Panic, still has
some useful advice). CBT therapy will help too as will Meditation
and Medication (SSRI's & tranquilizers: Xanax etc) :smile:

btw, I empathize with u, Read some of my posts, I had
completely flipped...now I'm no more psychotic than
your average sociopath  :lol:
well maybe a bit more psychotic.....
but the Panic Attacks are all gone....mm.....aaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAA...
:grin: but seriously the panic attacks are less intense and fade
quickly since I understand what's going on and that it can't
possibly hurt me...it's just an adreneline rush...
here's something that really helped me - "Reframe", it's an NLP
technique, so think of your feelings in terms of "Excitement"
instead of "Panic". The words we choose have a major effect on
us (read up on NLP for more about that). The brain is highly
Associative. Reframe, reassociate and reprogram your self,
update your software to Enlightenment OS 1 :grin:

btw, I want to be sure u know the facts and where I'm
comming from... I'm currently on heavy doses of
Anti-Depressants which is certainly affects my positivity.
I've gotten overconfident and tried to wean myself off
on my own with disasterous results. I realize that I'll
need to taper off but only after I've felt better for a while.
Hopefully I'll be fine, since I used to be an extreemly
happy positive person before the shroom incident which
basically messed with me big time. U'll be fine too ! trust me :smile:

"Social Anxiety" strikes again.

Don't worry - YOU'RE NORMAL!

More RELAXATION and CONFIDENCE are required, in my opinion.... I think we've all been there.. :smile:

Don't forget to laugh at your situation occasionally, if only to alter your breathing :wink:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Strumpling is probably correct. It sounds like Social Phobia (Social Anxiety Disorder - 300.23 DSM IV). It sometimes includes Panic Attacks, such as the one you apparently experienced. One can sometimes develop out of it, but it is treatable by a variety of therapies: hypnosis, cognitive-behavioral techniques, paradoxical intention (very interesting - read some Victor Frankl on this if you want to try the technique). This too shall pass.
