Panic Attacks, anyone?June 22, 2010
Maybe it’s only because I’m on my period, but I’ve felt a very real sense of dread all day long. I drank two cups of coffee, and they successfully made me feel much worse. I keep thinking about all the bad things that may or may not happen and how little control I have over most things, and I feel like I may be going crazy. I’ve always been a worrier, but this is a little ridiculous. I know that it’s likely a culmination of the stress I feel concerning moving out of the state and my lack of direction associated with choosing a career, but I have no idea how to fix it. I’ve been reading up on panic attacks, and I’m 90% positive that this is what I’m experiencing. I’m considering buying these:
Anyone ever tried those little guys? I’m open to any and all natural remedies for anxiety.
Update: I typed this post last night, and I am feeling much better today. A friend gave me some St. John’s Wort. I took it promptly with a cup of tension tamer tea and a warm bath. I fell asleep to King of the Hill. When I woke up this morning, I felt much better. I’m still considering buying the sublingual tablets. Periods are a real drag.
