Ouiser says

Enough, already. I'm not even kidding here, chickens. I'm at my wits end. If I had wits and I think we can all agree that at times that's debatable.

I've been treated for clinical depression off and on for about fifteen years. I was diagnosed with a chemical imbalance related anxiety disorder last spring. And now? Panic attacks too? Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK?

If I didn't drink so much I'd probably be really screwed up.

Fucking A, dude.

I say keep drinking.

Panic attacks do not sound fun.

Hugs to you. And whiskey.

get an airhorn. when you are feeling a panic attack coming on, no matter where you are, blow it, and it will so scare the shit out of everyone around you and you will laugh your ass off and the panic attack will pass.

Maybe I should be a therapist.

I'll have a drink for you. :)

Panic attacks ruined me for a couple of years. I still get them, but I've learned how to control them. I don't know what will work for you, but I hope you find it. Oddly, enough hangovers bring them on for me. That and dim lighting. Roadtrips used to do it as well. Pot caused them too. But I'm wired backwards. Xanax makes me hyper.

So anyway, I've been there. I'm sorry. I know when they happen you'd prefer death rather then endure anymore.

I learned to laugh at it. Especially if I have someone with me. I laugh and say, "Hey, guess what. My body is confused. It's freaking out but there's no reason to freak. What a dumbass body I have. And I force myself to smile no matter how much I don't want to and remind myself that even though it feels like it, it's not "The Big One." I hope you find your method whatever it is.

Whoa, ZDub and BJ could totally be my therapists.

I like their suggestions. You can't go wrong.

Take care.
