thats what i do myself. if i have a panic attack i look around and see what there is i can describe to myself.... what is it, how big is it, what shape is it, what colour, what texture. and this can help diffuse my mind

I just checked they are ok and took two for my headache. Are you on any medication for these attacks if you don’t mind me asking

Im on sertraline and aripiprozole for mood stabilisers. i was on citalopram but made me worse in other ways. i became hyper and more panicky but thats just me and my experiences. medications work for different people in different ways

I am new to citalopram and fear it is making my anxiety worse too. Definitely need a chat with my doctor tomorrow I can’t go on like this

i was on propanonol for the panic attacks but had to be taken off that as it brought on asthma.

My gp initally gave me the option for citalopram to take once a day or propranolol for as and when I needed it for attacks. I think the wrong decision was made looking back. Typical.

it is early days. takes a while for the medication to kick in properly. might need to persist a little longer. Just remember you are not alone in this

I agree with you. But when I feel like this I just want to curl up in a ball and sail away somewhere

why dont you? curl up and think about where you would like to go. who you would go with. what the weather would be like, how soft the sand is (if its to the beach!) how warm the rays of sun is.
all of this helps distract you
