Ok....So you are having Anxiety Attacks
or Panic Disorder......well say goodbye to them as after you read this they
will be history! Been there...done that and IT SUCKED!
If it is any consolation...only very intelligent
people seem to get them. It is because we think so much faster than the
average person. It starts out usually with being excited about something
or worried about something and your brain starts adding one more thing after
another...including something on the evening news....(I personally think
the brain enjoys doing this) You aren't totally conscious of what is happening..fast
thinkers just do it. Usually it starts when you are alone...but once you
get good at it you can do it anywhere. I had four before I figured it all
out. Let see...where was I? See what I mean? Oh yeah...you are thinking
about one thing after another consciously or otherwise and you start breathing
faster and faster...as if you were running in a dream...surely you have
awakened from a nightmare sweating and breathing fast? Well now you are
doing it in broad daylight...fully awake....As you breathe faster and faster
and you begin thinking OMG..I am having another anxiety attack...believe
me...YOU are on YOUR way. This is where you say to yourself...OH NO YOU
DON'T!!!! Then you cup your hands over your nose and mouth and start breathing
in the same air..over and over. The reason for this is that you have actually
changed the chemicals in your body from taking in too much oxygen. Now you
have to change them back. It is simple....keep breathing into your hands...(some
use a paper bag) until you feel all the tingly stupid feelings subside....and
THEY WILL! I got so good at anxiety attacks that the fourth one caused me
to get paralyzed on the right side of my body!!!
Now how is that for Intelligence????? LOL
Yes I am laughing. You will too once you see how ridiculous the entire thing
is. Doctors will never tell you this...they will prescribe pills to relax
you and you will become dependent on drugs. Don't go that way!!!! It is
a simple thing with an even simpler solution.
For me...a very... very good thing came
out of my attacks....I have a deep respect for what the brain can do. This
now works to my advantage and it will even more so as I get older.
Here is an example: Say that a person would
have a bad case of indigestion...and they hadn't learned to keep their thinking
in check. How long do you think it would take you to stress yourself into
a heart attack?
This is how the brain can be trained .
YOU DECIDE! The brain is a powerful computer. An anxiety attack is similar
to your computer on it's own opening every file (with Macs we call them
Folders) in the hard drive and throwing them on your desktop!
If the body developes disease...the brain
can and will fix it if you direct it to do so. Having experienced these
attacks...You too will be a believer. So you see..something good can come
out of seemingly bad experiences.
So why keep having them? Anxiety attacks
in themselves can't hurt you...you will just keep breathing fast until you
pass out. Then your breathing will normalize and you will regain consciousness.
Just breathe into your hands when you feel it starting. Let your brain know
that you are not in the mood for these little games. You are in charge..
