Re: Panic Attacks

Here's the other, longer link http://www.anxieties.com/65/panic-step6b#.VPQdQNkayc2 Is there a specific situation that sets off the attacks? Not that it really matters. This is helping me too. It is far more effective than popping a pill, which eventually will become an addiction, but occasionally I...

Re: How do I help my brother?

Hi there Living alone is the worst possible thing for your brother. That will be contributing to his depression. You are a great sister for helping him. I would suggest he move in with you or your parents on a temporary basis. He won't want to as he will think he is imposing. If you can, get him out...

Re: please help me

Hi lostone Acorn is right. The GP is there to help you and listen. Your health is as important as his job. You wont be sectioned. It's normal to think that way in your current state. Tell the GP you want to change your medication. If he refuses, tell him you want immediate referral to a consultant p...

Re: please help me

Hi there Your GP is the person to turn to again. Cymbalta is a good medication but 19 years is a long time. I would suggest changing to Efexor which is similar, or an SSRI type like Celexa. The switch can be made easily without the 3 week wait for it to kick in. The GP may suggest you decrease the d...

Re: Having a Panic attack

Hi Sanada Yes the previous poster is right. You should go to your GP who will probably give you medication. That will stop you feeling scared and depressed. You should also request counseling which will help with your past traumas. Panic attacks are scary but at the same time, you can try telling yo...

Re: In a foreign jail with anxiety and depression

For anyone like myself struggling with feelings of panic and anxiety and hopelessness, there is good stuff on the net if you google accepting anxiety . It is a self help method which runs contrary to logic. It will require time and practice but I believe it will work. Basically, during a panic attac...

Re: In a foreign jail with anxiety and depression

Hi Acorn Thanx for the kind words. Yes I am in jail but got hold of an ifon. It's not allowed but I have one. I think delayed shock is a good prognosis as I was doing ok until recently. I decided today to increase Cymbalta dosage from 60 mg to 90 mg which seems sensible. I am calmer today than yeste...

In a foreign jail with anxiety and depression

Hi I've been around here a few days offering advice to other persons but now it's my turn to cry out for help. I was imprisoned on vacation over 3 months ago, I never thought I'd survive 3 days. Was doing very well until this week, could be delayed shock, but anxiety has been bad all of a sudden. My...

Re: Looking for help

Hi there You definitely won't go mental as you put it. Panic attacks are an extreme form of anxiety, and anxiety has a habit of feeding on itself. You need effective medication right now. A lot of men don't like to admit to themselves that they have a mental disorder which they wrongly see as a weak...
