Fivealive saidI had pretty bad anxiety attack earlier. Hard to explain but I felt a great deal of sadness and despair. I couldn't think properly and felt that reality disconnected and certain scenarios were actually happening.
That feeling wasn't good at all. I stepped out with a friend for drinks and air. Feel a lot better now.
I suppose its the mental stress caught up due to the fact that I shifted back and I have to regain my balance and looking for a job. I still feel uneasy as t that mind trip linger is still there...
I just needed to say this so please don't mind. My bro couldn't understand my discomfort so I needed to unload onto here.
You want to make sure your blood sugar is not too low. Low blood sugar paranoia is often confused with some level of anxiety attack. If your blood sugar gets down in the 80's, or lower, you can experience EXTREME anxiety. It's very important to make sure you eat, especially if you are upset.
Viewpoint is everything. A dear friend recommended a book to me: SOS Help For Emotions by Lynn Clark. It will help you develop what the author calls "straight thinking." I wish I had read it years before I did.
As someone who burns a lot of calories just sitting around (from all the muscle), I have experienced low blood sugar a number of times. It can be VERY SCARY, and, if you do not understand, you can think it is an anxiety attack. If you eat a few pieces of candy, and you feel better, you are going hypoglycemic. If you break out in a sweat when the stuff goes on, you likely are going hypo.
Blood sugar STRONGLY influences how we feel. Don't forget to eat.
Daily exercise can markedly improve mood and has a long list of health benefits.
If you are having real anxiety issues, that are crippling, you can do self help methods like deep breathing and exercise. For extreme cases, you might want to look into SSRIs, SNRI's, or other meds, that influence mood. There are other things, too, like SADD (Seasonal Affected Depression Disorder / Lack of light).
Just about everyone deals with this at some point. We affect our emotions from our internal viewpoints. The take away point: I don't like this. I do not like how this feels. I can stand it. It is not death. It is not permanent. It WILL change.
