My first encounter with a panic attack
That sense of uncontrollable fear invaded my life when I was 23 years old. This uninvited guest came in the night while I was sipping hot milk before going to sleep.
My heart was a wild animal and my mind was a terrible mess. This sudden intense terror was something new to me and the worst part was that I didn’t know what to do. I went for a walk but did not want anyone to know.
So I decided to go to the hospital. Blood pressure was a bit high but a series of blood tests came negative.
Unfortunately, I never received any specific answers from the hospital. However, a nurse told me that I needed to take it easy and that the same happened to her when she was studying.
At this point, I did not know what was happening to me. Not even my primary doctor would help me understand what was wrong with me. I am very sure you may be dealing with this.
How facing my monster was the beginning of a healing process
Years later I continued feeling these debilitating symptoms and I still did not know what was going on. But one month after I got married I had the most horrible sudden fear I ever had. My husband, who also suffered from panic attacks before, knew that I was experiencing them.
His support helped me to do something about my panic attacks. From breathing exercises to long walks, I tried so many ways to manage them and I knew this was gonna be a long journey.
Why did we consider a panic attack self-help at home?
After I found that panic attacks were to blame I decided to face it after more than 20 years. I had to embrace a huge challenge because battling a mental disorder is part of our lives. So, with my husband’s help, I decided to treat my anxieties at home.
Along with physical activity and stress management, there are many things you can do to help yourself. Keep in mind that some might work better than others. The tips we will share are easy to follow, simple, and effective.
