I'm really sorry OP, panic attacks is not something you can control and they should know that. I really hope you are feeling better ;)
#1, I have actually seen a few people with anxiety to the point where they have panic attacks in a stressed environment. They started to smoke up to relax themselves about once a week, and their stress levels and panic attacks are basically gone. Sometimes weed can be a good thing. Like me and my ADHD, I do it here and there, not all the time. It keeps me relaxed and actually keeps me still for a day or so after doing it the one time :p
I'm so sorry OP. As someone who has panic attacks frequently, I can completely sympathize. It's definitely not cool that they're making fun of something like that. Is there maybe someone like a counselor you could talk to about this? Maybe they could help. (Help stop them from being jerks to you, I mean)
#48, there are quite a few 'remedies' to help with that, home remedies and/or medical prescriptions. We choose the home remedies (my girlfriend has bad anxiety and social anxiety as well) marijuana isn't as bad as people say as long as you can have the right mindset and control the usage, a gram lasts both of us about a week and we don't do it again for a couple more weeks. But see your doctor and let him know and it can help you a lot. Good Luck.
Yeah - nobody can control it. I've never had a panic attack, but in Freshman year of Catholic High School, the incense used at mass was really strong. Not being Catholic, I wasn't used to it. I lost vision, and ran down the aisle during mass, through the double doors, and blacked out in a snowbank.
You obviously can only control your own actions in a given situation; unfortunately, you're stuck with a bunch of immature, insensitive people. My advice is to simply stop, sigh, and look over disapprovingly (with a serious "smile") until said plebe is out of sight before resuming ahead. It's an "opportunity" to practice reinforcing your patience.... May they and their family members never be afflicted with any medical condition in a likewise fashion. Is this grade school, high school, university?
#40, clearly you've never had panic attacks or really, really bad anxiety. Unless you get some serious help or medicate yourself, the feelings can be overwhelming enough to prevent normal daily life. Due to anxiety/panic attacks and a couple of other issues, I had to start doing home studies for 2 years of high school until I finally got it under control enough to go back for my senior year. All is not lost! If you work really hard on it, and possibly with the help of medication, it's possible to have a more normal life. But you have to get to the root causes. Sometimes medication only helps so much.
I didn't drop out. I began doing home studies through the school where a teacher came to my house once every 2-4 weeks. I still graduated on time with the rest of my class. My anxiety problems were compounded by bipolar disorder, so it took longer than my doctors would have liked to help me get better, but we all worked really hard on it, and I am no longer on any medications for these issues at the moment. It's possible (in many cases) to get help so one can live a more normal life. I had to face the roots of my anxiety (at first with meds) and then slowly get over them. I still have some anxiety and panic attacks, but they happen much, much less frequently and to a lesser extent now. I'm still working on it, and likely will for a long time, but I am happy with my progress!
I got a massive one when we were doing our grad rehearsal. I burst into tears and couldn't breathe. All my friends were crowded around the window of the room I was in until my brother elbowed his way in and took me home. I would get them for years after because I had a lot of health problems. I ended up bring in the disability resource center at University and did fine, eventually not needing the help. Don't give up OP!
Hey guys, this was actually me before I signed up for an account. Thanks for all the supportive messages, you guys rock! You're right, anxiety is a bitch! All those who said YDI, no-one deserves anxiety or any other mental disorder... just like no-one deserves any illness eg. cancer.
