Panic Attack Help - Getting Rid of Your Fears


Visitors: 148

One of the first things you should do if you feel you are suffering from panic attacks is to meet with your doctor. Being honest with your doctor is the first step toward finding help. You physician will probably order a complete panel of blood work which is very important to eliminate any obvious physical condition that may be causing you to feel down or anxious. Medication and/or vitamin supplements may alleviate the symptoms causing the attacks.

Confronting your fears by calling them by name them or jotting them onto notepaper allows you to face them down. In addition, keep track of a list of things that bring you happiness or have a calming effect. Read the positive, calming list when you feel an attack coming on.

Focus on what you are at the present time doing. Don't worry about what will happen in the future since that can cause fear of the unknown. Often times it's a good idea just to be honest with yourself and not beat yourself up about an attack. By accepting the reality that you are experiencing panic, you free yourself from the anxiety of it.

Calm, soothing breaths are the key to calming the attack. Inhale from your nose and exhale through your mouth. Also, closing your eyes and concentrating on just your breathing will add more calm.

Believe in yourself, that is one of the essentials in relief from attacks. Because the mind is what can cause panic, taking control of what you are thinking is necessary. Try to replace negative thoughts of not being able to control your life and situation with thoughts of empowerment, “I'm going to make it, " “I'm not going to die from this, " and “I have a bright future ahead of me. " This will establish a sense of empowerment and place you in the driver's seat of the panic attack.

Most of all, what I would like you to take away from this article is that you are not alone and there are plenty of places where you can get help. If you suffer from anxiety, please don't suffer alone, get help and get you life back on track, you CAN do it!
