Well here's the thing, i've not really had any anxious periods since December time, now today, out of nowhere, it's just hit in and it's made me feel emotional and panicky too!

Now i'm presuming this is down to my lack of sleep last night (I tossed and turned most the night, just couldn't get comfy) so hopefully a good night's sleep tonight will make things better for tomorrow.

Just really after a little bit of distraction now i'm finally able to concentrate on the computer for long enough to write this, until this anxious state eases enough for me to let it pass naturally.

So anyone for just random ramblings or got their own tips on how to deal with these out the blue occurances

Sorry you're having a bad day. Def doesn't help when you've not had good sleep. I'm panicking about helicopters at the moment and Iffybobs made me laugh telling me to think of them as big dumpy birds. Messaging hubby at work too and have just put headphones on to block the noise of them out.

What sort of things do you generally do to help with the panic?

Hugs
Lady T:hug:

It just sneaks up on you doesn't it. It probably is lack of sleep thats causing it, hopefully you'll get a good sleep tonight and feel better tomorrow.

Too right, just sat minding my own business watching some tv then bam lol, it's funny looking back at it now i've calmed down a bit but it's still really annoying when it just hits you out of nowhere.

Roll on a good nights sleep, though I refuse to change my sleep habit now it's been regular for a while.

I've not slept at all the last 3 nights and for 2 weeks before that I had 2 hours sleep a night. My anxiety is sky high and my shoulders are killing me and I feel like I'm having a heart attack!! Though my cpn did tell me that no-one has ever died through lack of sleep!! I don't believe that for a minute!!:LOL:

Ahh don't you just love tension in the body, though I can ease that myself, will give myself 10 mins shortly to have a relax.

Indeedy, I thought I was bad but you know.

Thanks for the distractions though, i'm pretty much back to normal now.

Thats good, wish I was!! The breathing exercises just make me worse, I feel like I get more worked up trying to concentrate on breathing!! I'm a hopeless case!!

Aww you poor thing, guess i'm a lucky one finding something that worked for me so quickly, but then again my lovely partner does try to drum it in me that if I put my mind to things I can do it no problem, sometimes its easier said than done.

It really does help to have a supportive partner, my hubby is always on hand to give me a nice shoulder rub when things are bad even if hes tired himself, I don't know where I'd be without him - dead or in the hospital probably!! Or in the gutter!!

Yeah mine is always more than willing to kick my butt when i'm a little bleh with it all, but touch wood this is just a one off.
