A Giant Thank you!

I had a bad morning and ended up having a major anxiety attack outside of the sleep County in Oliver Square. I don’t know who you are, but you stopped for me and helped. Then you told another gentlemen to come over.

That really really helped me as it was the first time I’ve had an anxiety attack, like that! I was very scared. You helped calm me. You’ll never know the appreciation I will have for that.

  3. Wow great people to come and help you. But definitely get checked out, I too have anxiety.

  4. Once you get anxiety, it will bother you. Get help right away. I had it once and bothered me for few months. I got over it though.

  5. Glad someone helped you

    So happy someone helped you!

  7. I am sorry you had a panic attack but am very happy to hear people stopped to help 🙂 I know personally how scary it can be. A tip I learned that I will post here I find helps a lot. I also learned how to focus on the things I can control, and even in a bad situation focus on what I can control to make it better. But this is a grounding 5 step method, so it goes 5 things you can see, 4 things you can hear, 3 things you can touch and reach out and touch them, 2 things you can smell and 1 thing you can taste (my personal favorite :P). This excersise is meant to break the cycle of anxiety and focus your brain back on reality. I hope this helps 🙂

  8. Kudos to the good samaritans. What helps when you are having an attack is to breathe in a paper bag.

  9. as someone who used to get these regularly i can totally relate. it would help so many sufferers cope if more people were aware of how it feels or how it makes people feel and can be there for when someone who is having one needs them. too many times i’ve had my own friends look at me weird or even just get standoffish when im panicking for no reason but it does happen, it’s very real and we need to raise awareness of it. awareness about mental health issues is increasing but this should be a defined mental issue in itself
