DAY SIX: looking forward

Day is starting good so far. We will see, once again, how it goes.As of 2:00 p.m. I am managing  things pretty well.

That could be good or bad, lol, as I have had great days and then a melt down but I am hoping this is a journey to recovery. I am learning exercise plays a big part.

It is scary at first but then I remind myself, heartbeat going up. Normal. Feelings I get. Normal. By that, I mean normal if you have panic attacks. It is okay to feel these things.

DAY FIVE: PART TWO

It went good. I know we each have to do this on our own at our own pace. But I am learning that we have to take control back.

It is easy in some ways and in others, it is really difficult. But some ways I am trying techniques. EFT, PRAYER of course, quoting Bible verses I like, hypnosis for verses for calming, joy, peace and etc.

I am changing my eating habits and also I am try deep breathing which takes time but it does work.

DAY FIVE: ANXIETY & PANIC ATTACKS

Today has started out good so far. I took a med and my usual aspirin, and drank some coffee, which I have cut back on. This may be a long process but I am determined to try and overcome it. I had a brief pain in the chest but it went away.

I listened to some hypnosis videos last night and I found a site called inner health on how to retrain the Amygdala. They have some free videos (two on e-training the Amygdala and a couple others  but also some you have to pay for.

I am also using essential oils as needed. I have decided to wait later in the day this time before I try the LTheamine again.

The kids are here so I will spend some time with them and process how the day goes. On a note: Hypnosis does NOT put you to sleep. Or at least not me, as I think I stated in one of the earlier blogs. However, it does relax me and I am  using soothing nature sounds at night because I love the sound of the ocean. You can also find these free on you tube. I just type in free videos of nature sounds, mine without music.

As of 2:30 still going good. Trying to be positive and keep an outlook of brightness so I will write more later after kids leave. L.W.

DAY FOUR: Possible help

I added Ltheanine to my routine. It is an anti-oxidant that comes in pill form. It seemed  to help a lot. But that was my first day so we will see how it progresses.

It was a good though somewhat stressful day to start out but after that, it seemed to get much better.

I stayed gone a lot of the day and just tried to take in the world in general.

I prayed also a lot as I often do daily.

I repeat the verse or verses that bring relief.

THERE IS HOPE. We just have to get through it.

I am also still working on turning off that Amygdala switch.

“All things are possible who Christ who strengthens me”.

Each day we wake and try is another success whether good or bad so Lord Willing, this process will continue to improve as God allows.

Be careful in judging someone who has an issue you think is stupid for having a problem that you see as weakness or thinking that it is just because they don’t have enough “faith”  or you may find yourself right there with them.

ACTUALLY, people who are suffering the attacks or anxiety are actually very mentally strong and intelligent. They just hit a spot where the switch turned on after years or months of protecting themselves from situations.

Have a good day to those who are struggling and to those who are not.

DAY THREE: Overcoming anxiety and panic attacks

Day three went much better. I went to the Doctor for a checkup and it was long but I got through.

I am doing hypnosis videos as well as calming music therapy.

I also just use music therapy in listening to songs I like.

I am exercising just in small amounts and I have been eating anti oxidants.

I am still working to reverse the negative into the positive.

That was day three. 🙂

Did I have a couple of moments? Yes, but I fought them.

DAY TWO: Journal on Anxiety & Panic Attacks.

Day two and starting okay so far even around chaotic morning. We will see how day goes. 🙂

Emergency problems arose as soon as I got up. (To me, they are anyway,lol). However, since releasing, and part of the re-training, I was able to get through it without the usual melt down.

I will be alone again today which usually sets a panic in order but so far so good. It doesn’t seem to bother me thus far so I will meet the challenges as they come.

Well, I had to wait until today to finish day two. I did end up having a friend over and I thought that was good but as it turns out, my fear of having one while she was here made it worse. I got through the day and then had a full blown attack last night that lasted two hours or more.

But I did get through it and no ER visits because Dan just stayed with me and I did a lot of the techniques I have been trying.

It was a rough but learning day so that is a plus.

Journal to overcome and get rid of Anxiety and Panic Attacks

Day One: I thought I would share my journey. The ups and the downs. The Good, the Bad, The Ugly.

This may help others who suffer or have suffered this terrible demon. I am starting this journey alone with the a prayer warrior or two and honestly, I don’t how it will go. But, for those who understand, maybe we can ride this road together.

1. Let go. This morning, I am letting of “what if’s”. So what?  If isn’t here yet. When it comes I will  have to take it head on. Will it work? Day one, so we will see, Lord Willing, how it progresses.

2. Let go of anger. If someone has harmed you, whether you or right or they are, it is just an obstacle in our path. You cannot change them, you cannot make them be what you need, you cannot make them understand. Let it go.

3. Take responsibility that we did this to ourselves. Like it or not, we allowed our brain to accept this fear. Now we have to stand up and fight back.  This is NOT a mental illness, it is a Behavior illness that we gave to our mind.

4. Train your thoughts to a vision that shows you armed for battle. Be courageous. Get our swords ready.

5. We CAN do it. But we cannot place blame. It hurts us, not the ones who hurt us. If we must fight this battle alone, God has plenty of warriors to stand by our side.

6. Take charge of the things we can control and that valuable thing is our mind. Teach the Amygdala (a part of your brain) that you are not a victim but a victor.

7. Some of us are on meds for these issues. NEVER attempt cold turkey on your own. Get your doctor to help.

8. We have to realize this is NOT something we have to live with. Yes, it may be a challenge but we need to take our lives back. No one who has not been through it can understand it.

9. Let GO of the past. Build a brick wall each day to stop the past from entering. We cannot change it so therefore, we should not dwell on it. It is DONE.

10. It is not weak people that battle this. It is strong and intelligent people that somehow got turned around and led our minds through this path for reasons known or unknown.

OKAY, this is my day one battle. So far, it is working. I would also like to say this is something I am sharing as I go. I do not claim to offer medical advice, treatment or anything else. I am just sharing what I am going through.
