Hello! Is anybody experience this kind of panic? It comes like a weave of terror and in that moment suicidal thoughts increase like the brain wants to find an escape from to torture. In that moment I feel utter despair and i can't control my thoughts...sometimes I feel aggressive for no apparent reason or I feel crazy and out of control. These attacks last a few minutes, but comes on and off during the day......anything can trigger them. Other symptoms that accompanied these attacks: pressure in the head, feelings of running away or do something crazy. I mean every day is a torture and I can't find what causes this.
I'm taking medication for depression and anxiety, I'm in psychotherapy,I tried to take a little walk every day.
I would really appreciate your opinion. Thank you!

I’m in the same boat but instead of anger, I withdraw. I hope someone can help with an answer. :hug:

Hi KitKat, thank you for your reply.
How often do you have these attacks?
In my case they happen daily, sometimes are stronger, other times milder. I also suffer from depression and because of this I'm mentally and emotionally exhausted all the time. Sometimes I feel like my body will give up any minute.

I feel like this too. I just don’t think my body can handle the constant anxiety and panic. It has gotten a little better with the antidepressant but I’m still not at a place where I can cope. Yes, it’s daily.

I definately know what you are talking about. I expirience the same thing almosy daily and it can feel unbearable. Keep in mind panic attacks are temporary and it will end. Recognize this is your mind panicking and not a perminent state of thinking.

Hello , I can definitely relate to how you are feeling.
I think personally the feelings of running away and the sudden bouts of aggression are all manifestations of the good old fight and flight system...
The system that is designed to keep us alive in danger but us anxiety and panic sufferers have grown to fear rather than rely on.
Your brain is very good at memorising feelings to situations.. maybe a time in the past you have felt down and suicidal when experiencing panic attacks so now your body in covers those feelings again when those panic attacks rear their ugly head.
the wave of terror is because the fight or flight system is only meant to kick in in times of real danger but we have all learned to trigger it in completely random scenarios and occurrences
Hope this helps and feel assured that you are not the only one that’s feels the way you do.
