Re: panic attacks



First, I know this is a tough situation for you but you must calm down. No need to stress yourself. God's going to help you get through this. I've noticed that when I stop and allow myself to think, my thoughts become clearer and my anxiety reduces. I hope that everything goes well. You can do this!

Hey Eden1717
👋🏼 experienced panic attacker at your service
first of all, everything's going to be all good. I think by the time you get this message you may have already met with this caseworker. but if you ever feel like this again maybe you could try my little trick?
grab a sheet of paper and write down at the top on the left 'Control' on the right 'Can't Control'. write down a list on each side, the things you can control right now about this scenario, for example breathing is usually at the top of my list even when it feels out of my control it isn't! What can you do to avoid having this situation occur again? can you get a different caseworker? etc etc. write down as many on each side as possible.

you'll be surprised how many will be on the right, and i promise it'll bring you back out of that headspace at least initially. good luck, here if you need anything

Re: panic attacks

**sorry, surprised how many will be on the left. just woke up 😹

Re: panic attacks

Hey @Eden1717, how'd you go with getting to your appointment yesterday? I saw on one of your other threads that you might be able to change caseworkers which is awesome Smiley Happy feeling for you though - panic attacks suck

No human being, however great or powerful, was ever so free as a fish

Re: panic attacks

yeah it was pretty intense i am hoping i can have another caseworker.
