      From time to time I get this feeling of anxiety, and it especially rears its ugly head when im going to social functions, part of my dna I suppose ( i get the Good and the Bad of being Me ) estatic.
      I wonder how many of you have this problem and is it very common among women or am I just one of the lucky few who get this .....Usually it subsides but when it happens its scary and very uncomfortable .

        • I used to get panic attacks, too. Like Vikki, I’m using breathing and meditation. It’s funny, because my doc. put me on medication, but that doesn’t work as well as the breathing and meditation. And lots of reading self-help books!worried

        • So True breathing and meditation can go along way when your having a panic attack.  

          When I know that I have an event coming up I give myself lots of time to get ready.
          I take a nice relaxing bath give myself a facial, a manicure and pedicure and I am all set.

          I know this takes time but you are always worth it.heart

        • Oh yeah the breathing and meditating took me a bit to get it down right. And some people may need meds as well. But for me the stuff my Dr gave me made me feel like crap so I had to do something different.

          Since I have been exercising more in the past yr or so I have noticed that there is only rare times when I feel the need to breathe my way out.

        • What works for me is taking an “inventory” of myself. I did this and that and this... and
          this here is no big deal compared to being trusted with the running of a 2.5 million $$
          landmark restaurant in Malibu for 2 week!  

          So basically my trick is going back to something I did really well.

        • I used to get both severe anxiety and panic attacks. And they were both super scary. And nothing seemed to help. So I know what you mean. I thought I’d have to live with them forever. Thank the Lord I found much needed relief. Guess it’s more common than I thought.

        • No meds for me! Been there, done that, and it never helped...I got worse. That route is just not for me anymore. Dianne, so sorry to hear. I hope you will find relief soon.

        • Normal occassional anxiety is common for many people but unfortunately its not normal when it occurs a lot and runs a persons life.  Its a physiological experience the entire body goes through and very unpleasant to experience where you feel out of control of your life.
          Thankfully modern medicine helps so many people out there to take back their lives in the “norm“.
          Also , for some people medicine just isnt a personal option and they can use exercise or meditation to overcome it,but for those who cant fight off the physiological power of anxiety, its just as important to take medicine for it just as if a person had diabetes or high blood pressure.  Im a firm believer in that.
