Inside View to a PTSD Panic Attack

Don’t want to talk about it. Don’t want the past to cast it’s shadow on the future. Just stop pounding…. just stop pounding. Swallow. Breathe. Breathe. …

Swallow. Swallow. Breathe. Focus. Vision is clearing. Grayness is receding. Dull throb- left side- head hurts. Breathing shallow.

Focus on breathing. Keep breathing.

——————-

Do you have similar occurrences?
Feel the panic so thick in your throat that it chokes you?
Forget to breathe because of the emotional onslaught of no-longer-present voices?
Lose track of time until you suddenly consciously notice your breathing?
Find comfort in reminding yourself to keep breathing?
I cannot be the only one.

  1. Absolutely… The one thing is that it passes. We both know that. But, when a panic attack comes, they are bad for me. Sometimes, I feel like I am having a heart attack, faint, running thoughts, and sweats.

    I find myself working out and taking prescriptions.
