Thanks Hugs4u,

They are Silkie Chickens; they have fur instead of feathers.  They are supposed to be kept inside during rain or snow, so they don't get soaked and possibly get a cold or pneumonia.  If they get wet, you can always use a blow dryer to dry them :)  Funny, but true :)

Hi Lauri,

Welcome to the panic centre site. I have been using the program for my anxiety and I can say this program does work and helps a lot with anxiety and panic. 

When I am in a panic attack it is very hard to remember that it isn't going to last forever and that it will end. This program has helped to challenge all that negative thinking.

Hi Lauri,

Welcome :)  I'm Shari.  One of my triggers was also physical sensations.  I would focus on my increased heart rate and breathing and set myself off to a panic attack instead of using positive self talk and challenging the false flight symptoms.  Also, box breathing and challenging negative thoughts, are the tools, that helped me to be proactive and not just let anxiety and panic happen to me.  Replace your negative thoughts with positive truths and you will get better and better over time.  It's been over two years since I've had a panic attack.  And, if I get anxiety, whether it's mild or high, I can manage it :) Your mind is powerful, you can either talk yourself into panic or talk yourself out of it by saying, "I'm alright, this is just a temporarily uncomfortable feeling, nothing bad is really happening.  And, you have to believe it.  I'm sure you've found or will find, that it's not the mall, going to someone's house, or anything.  Events can be a trigger like physical sensations.  I used to have panic attacks in the shower and driving a car and then associated panic with those things.  But, it's not those things, it's fear of panic.  Anxious Thoughts and Challenging Negativity will also help, once you've discovered your triggers which it seems you already have :)  You're going to do great.  It just takes time and practice and you will see a decrease in anxiety and panic over time.  Glad you're here.

Shari

Hi There!


My name is Lauri and I have just joined this Panic Centre.  I am currently experiencing panic attacks and anxiety.  It started a few weeks ago now, and I most say I am not as bad as I was during the first week.  I was seriously anxious and couldn't even bring myself to sit down because no matter what I did I did I couldn't calm down. It was awful, I had to take diazepam, just to be able to calm down for a bit.

I am now feeling a let better than that but the anxiety, the constant worrying and the panic attacks are still there.  I have been through panic attacks before and managed to get through it so I am trying to stay positive.  I currently have a silly anxiety that I won't be able to breath.  It stemmed from my panic attacks because when I panic I feel like I can't breath and I'm just going to stop.  My anxiety about it was then born.  I have panic attacks in situations such as going to the mall, or someone's house, it could be anything.  All this twinned with my anxiety is making me feel like I am going mad.

Most recently I find myself for some parts of the day focusing on my breathing, like it is no longer automatic and I have to do it myself, this also happened to me last time so I know it will wear off. This then makes me panic when I feel like I can't breath.

I would be grateful for your feedback, and to hear if anyone else feels this way.  I am hoping to bet a lot of support from you all, anxiety hearing your stories.

Lauri
