Title: Anxiety Attack/Panic Attack/Anxiety Disorders
Post by: Tatrix on May 16, 2015, 10:14:04 pm
I've had this since I was a kid but it just went away and it wasn't properly diagnosed. Last year, I was brought to ER because of difficulty breathing and it was diagnosed as anxiety attack. Last week, I was sent to ER again because of this.

I had psychiatrist consultation last year and was given prescription but because I didnt want to rely on meds, I tried to control it and it went away. Last week, i had no choice but to take the meds because it was getting worse.

Is there anyone here who experienced this? If so, what did you do?

I have never been diagnosed with either of the aforementioned problems pero I am guessing I may have bouts of panic attacks once in awhile.  When I feel my heart palpating, talagang I make it a point to breathe in and breathe out.  Too much stress brings this out.

I have anxiety disorder too. Worst feeling ever. But for how many times na nagpapanic attack ako, I have learned that nobody else can help me deal with it but myself. Though at first, I used to take alprazolam and beta blockers for my palpitation, I realized na I should not depend on meds, kasi ako rin mahihirapan especially if naconsume ko na lahat. At saka hassle masyado magpa prescribe ulit sa doctor. Thats why I practiced deep breathing exercise. It really helps. And of course exercise din and healthy diet. :)

I used to have this when I was a kid, it's hard when you are so young and you have these panic attacks, I kept journals and prayed a lot, then it would go away.. Growing up, when I get these, I try to control my thoughts and emotions and focus on happy thoughts, and somehow, it reduces the anxiety.. Instead of meds, I recommend yoga, or other relaxing activities to de stress

I'm not really sure, sis. Hindi ako familiar sa ibang causes ng anxiety disorder.

Last week, I was prescribed with higher dosage of Zoloft. Hindi parin kasi nawawala. I am still trying to reach deep into my subconscious to learn what exactly is the root cause of this. Kasi akala ko okay na ako eh. And then all of a sudden, inaatake nanaman ako.

Have had panic attacks since 2004 but only started seeing a psychiatrist in 2013. I take Alprazolam (Xanor or Altrox) and I've been taking Mirtazapine (Mirazep) which is actually an antidepressant but also suppsoedly helps with anxiety. After almost 4 months of taking Mirazep, I still have panic attacks although not as bad as before. Pero ayoko na mag-meds, deliks sa liver eh. Will see my doc this week to ask if I can get off Mirazep na ang go organic na lang, tipong St. John's Wort.

I would think hindi naman grabe anxiety attacks ko kasi I can still control it though malakas talaga palpitations ko at times.  I know I can't take medications kasi I am pregnant pero after giving birth I should probably address this or lessen my stress load.

Anxiety and depression can be treated naturally. Know that nothing bad will happen to you. You will be okay. Tell your body that that is good for you- that's how you fight it. When you tell your body that everything is good, it will not try to run/escape from what you're feeling. Every time you try to fight it, the more you will be in pain. Try to befriend it, and the attack seems not to hurt you anymore. Challenge the attack, and demand for more. I know that seems scary, but try to ask, "Is that all you've got?" And it will go away. Exercise and healthy diet are effective ways as well to break from it. Join volunteer activities. And dare to believe that God will help you get through that. You can overcome this!

Easier said than done especially when you are in the moment. Iba-iba kasi ang causes ng depression. Some are hereditary, some are due to past experience. It does help to go to a professional to figure out the best therapy and treatment. According to my research, magnesium deficiency can also cause anxiety. So, try adding magnesium supplement to your diet. Although you can get it from nuts, green leafy veggies, pumpkin seeds etc., the soil most farmers plant their crops right now doesn't produce enough magnesium which also means the produce won't provide the same. I just learned this last week. So, I got me a bottle of magnesium complex. The research said, magnesium chelate is the best choice. But make sure you talk to your doctor regarding this mineral.

Teenager palang ako mabilis ako nerbyosin, lage akong kinakabahan ng wala naman reason, takot ako sa tunog ng tambol or any things na may malakas na tunog, sobrang takot ako dun hanggang ngayon. Madalas ako mag imagine ng mga bagay na yun at tunog kaya lage akong hindi mapalagay. Lage akong ninenerbyos. Anxiety Attack ba tawag dun? May goiter din pala ako kaya iniisip ko baka symptoms yun ng sakit ko. Pero mas madalas tinatawag nila akong baliw at naloloka na lalo ng asawa ko. Ang gusto ko lang naman may mag-comfort sakin kapag inaatake ako ng ganong situation. :(

^It sounds like you have GAD or Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I can't bear loud noise as well. I had bad panic attack when I was watching Star Wars with my son. It was on Ultra AVX so everything seems enhanced. My son was enjoying the movie but I was in agony the whole time. Di ko tuloy naintindihan masyado ang movie...LOL! Thyroid problems can also trigger anxiety. You need to address that first. Elimination process ika nga. If it still persist then you might need a help of a therapist. I had my first session with a therapist last week and she taught me some breathing exercises. It does help when panic attack sets it.

i'm not sure about the causes of anxiety disorder but accdg to my dad's doctor, it can be hereditary. so my dad gave me emergency pills for anxiety attack (xanor). i experience anxiety attack kasi every time i'm stressed or maraming iniisip, tipong parang umaakyat yung dugo sa utak ko, then palpitations. lol. i also have a bottle of sleeping pills with me.

Hirap sa anxiety, it comes and goes. Akala mo ok na tapos bigla anjan na naman. Pastors say God did not create anxiety. I tried to fight it and just pray most of the times. I dont know if i lack faith. But i know i believe in God. I cant seem to go thru the day. Heaviness in my chest is my common complaint....muscle tension. Been taking LexApro on and off since 2011. I dont want to be pabigat to my family.... It's easier said than done.... People really don't understand.

Hi fellow GT's! Ako naman hindi ko alam kung panic attack/axiety attack ba yun nangyayari sakin. 3x na nangyayari pero yung pakiramdam na parang magdidilim pakiramdam ko. Mag start sa magttwitch yun sa mata ko, then nanmlalambot na tuhod, tapos parang hihimatayin. Di ko alam ang cause.

First kasi na nangyari ay sa loob ng church, tayuan kaya akala ko baka sa hilo lang kaya ako ganun.

Second, nun pinagalitan ako ng dad ko, as in di ko napigil at di mapigil ang iyak.

Third, sa work ko while talking to my manager. Yun ang pinaka recent and it happened last year. Basta bigla nalang ako napaupo at di mapigil umiyak kahit di ko alam bakit ako umiiyak. Pakiramdam ko nun nagpanic ako because the manager was asking too many questions.

Tingin niyo mga sis? Thank you sa help.

I was recently diagnosed for panic disorder and have been taking meds for a month now.

Share lang ako ng story ko. Matagal na ko nagsmosmoke, if you know what I mean. Pero there was this one time I couldn't get stuff from my regular supplier so sa iba ako kumuha. Naka check in kami ng partner ko sa hotel for 2 weeks nun so ayun. Yung akala kong happy-happy, will be the day I will regret my whole life. Learned my lesson the hard way. So while we were smoking, ang pangit ng trip. bigla nyang sinabi sakin na I need to call 911 (hindi po sya taga pinas) yun pala he was just kidding pero I suffered from a very bad panic attack. Di ako makahinga. I was shaking. I was crying. I had history of panic attacks but those were manageable but that time it hit me hard. After nun I kept on having panic attacks. Nagpanic attack ako sa taxi, sa opisina, bahay, bus, in a span of 1 week. sinumpa ko yung araw na yon. Kept on having depersonalization/derealization din kung saan-saan. tried meditation, change of diet, exercise for a month to no avail. I was told by my relatives to visit PMHA na kasi may lahi kami ng ganito. So until now, still seeing a psychiatrist. :(

i was prescribed clonazepam .5mg once a day before bedtime and escitalopram 5mg for a week and upped the dose to 10mg na. During that period I HAD MY LIFE BACK. Grabe iba yung saya ko. So for 3 weeks it was perfect. A little anxiety here and there til my last visit 22nd of June. I was told to stop clonazepam cold turkey. Edi ako deadma akala ko okay na e. Ngayon I'm having anxiety again pero di singlala ng dati,  pero bumalik. I'm trying to fight this kasi addictive nga daw si clonazepam and it takes months before Escitalopram takes effect daw. So tiis-tiis. Update ako dito when the withdrawal symptoms stop. Hay kelan kaya tatalab tong escitalopram. :(

Sa ibang hirap na hirap na, at takot magtake ng meds, ang masasabi ko is go see a psychiatrist. Promise the meds will help a lot. Di ka magsisisi.

Hi mga sis. Do you consider this as an anxiety attack: every time na lalabas kami ng bahay or may lakad the next day, iniisip ko pa lang nasasakay kami ng van or jeep eh kinakabahan na ako. Pero sanay naman ako magcommute kasi yun minsan ang means of transpo namin. Pero pag sinabi nila Mama na naka-car naman kami eh okay na naman ako. Tapos pagdating naman sa destination bigla na lang akong kinakabahan. As in sobrang bilis ng tibok ng puso ko. Parang sasabog na. Since February 2016 pa ako nagkakaroon ng feeling na ganito everytime na may lakad. Hindi ko sure if anxiety attack ba 'to? Please enlighten me mga sis..

Possible sis na anxiety attack sya. Nahihirapan ka ba huminga? Nasusuka? Sumasama tiyan? Kung since feb pa yan at hanggang ngayon ganyan pa rin, I suggest see a psychiatrist kung hirap na hirap kana, kung di na sya maneagable.

Di naman nahihirapan huminga sis pero sobrang lakas talaga ng heartbeat ko. Yung tipong parang lalabas na sa lakas. Feeling lang yung nasusuka sis pero never pa naman ako nagsuka. Yung pag poop talaga. As in iniisip ko agad asan ang cr para makatakbo ako agad. Minsan meron minsan wala.

Guys need help. Please pm me. Im okay naman kaso my voice shakes and trembles whenever i talk to someone na vip or hindi ko pa kilala. Lalo na during meeting. Kala nila paiyak ako this is so embarassing and frustrating at the same time. Nagkakaroon ako ng sensation sa throat. Do you have group for this i mean personal meeting i dont know any psychiatrist or where to go to help myself. Ive been to ent may gerd then chineck nya yung vocal chords ko butwala naman syang nakitang problem. Kakatake ko lang ng lab test to check irregularities in my heart naman. Update ko kayo. For meetings, [textspeak!] ent ko nagprescribe sya saken ng inderal for beta blockers anti palpitations and omeprazole 40g for my gerd. Nagbubuko juice nadin ako recently. I never drink coffee na and even spicy garlic onion foods o kaya fatty limit na. Umaangat padin yung acid sa throat ko and nararamdaman ko sya pag nagbuburp ako. Anyone with the same kind of conditions that i have mentioned?

I'm doing some research about what I am going through.  When my sister gets really stressed, she can't control her eyes from opening and closing.  Ako naman, I felt like my arms were parang having tremors.  I don't know the word for it I thought caffeine but there is really that weird feeling and it won't go away even without coffee.

The throat sensation is called globus hystericus. I experience that also sometimes. I went to the doctor told me it's most probably anxiety related. There's so much physical effects of anxiety and panic disorder and everyone's different. But always go to the doctor to rule out any serious health problems.

Joining this thread because I, too, suffer from this disorder. I think namana ko ito sa mom ko. Ilang beses na rin ako napupunta sa ER dahil sa panic attack na yan. Minsan nga din I am scared to fly - once na nasa flight kami from Manila to Cebu gusto kong ipabalik yung eroplano. It took all my will to tell myself to calm down which I was able to do 15mins prior to landing. Ngayon nga lang nagbabasa lang ako nitong thread na to, natetense na ako. Hypochondriac din ako so simpleng symptoms kung ano ano na naiisip kong sakit ko. For now, I'm still trying to manage it through breathing and calming of the mind, pero nafefeel kong lumalala sya. I don't want to take anxiety drugs so I'm on the lookout for natural meds. May nirecommend yung friend ko na nakuha nya from healthy options, Sedalia daw yung name may nakatry na ba nito? I'm also asking my friend who's about to go to South Korea to get me yung Cheongsimhwan. It's a natural anxiolytic which apparently is used by a lot of faint-hearted koreans.

Avoid anything with caffeine, nakaka-trigger ng anxiety/panic attacks. Nakaka-miss tuloy ang chocolates.

I've tried some supplements na rin from Healthy Options. Careful though, kailangan mag-research for contraindications and i-consult sa doctor if you have existing meds kasi yung iba hindi pwedeng isabay sa psych meds. Pero pwedeng gawing alternative. Tapos there are supplements and vitamins that don't complement each other. Kunyari 5-HTP and St. John's.

I have BPD, Bipolar II, OCD, and SAD. Thankfully, may 2 months na rin since I had my last panic attack. Magandang development na yun kasi starting this year, almost every time na lalabas ako, ayan na, panic attack na. Sa 15 years, kabisadong kabisado ko na kapag pa-attack na siya. Never ko siya napigilan, but minsan nase-secure ko naman ang sarili ko before mag-full blown ang attack. I would go to the nearest exit points, sa guard, police, clinic, or habang may vision pa ko, dial na agad sa bahay for rescue. What I hate most about it is yung blurry to loss of vision na. Sobrang delikado especially kapag gabi umatake at nasa labas ako, and I always go out alone pa naman. I realized sa recent attacks ko na hindi pala laging may good samaritan around.

So there. Mag-ingat tayo. And though prayers are not sure instant cure, pray pa din.

Hi! First time ko here.
I also have anxiety attacks. As in no reason at all, i will have palpitations and shortness of breath. I always go to ER, the doctor will just give me Iterax to calm my nerves and help me sleep, kaso it makes me sleepy and tired talaga for 2 days.
My BP is normal, heartbeat, oxygen and other examinations. My friends said I'm just paranoid. It makes me sad they don't believe I am feeling helpless everytime I will have a sudden fear and palpitations.
Then I learned to control it, inhale/exhale lang and clear my kind and pray lang talaga, tapos drink a lot of water. Sana this will go away forever.

Hi! Anyone na makakapag recommend ng best and affordable psychiatrist? I experience panic attack nung oct 2008 and pina check ako ng kapatid ko sa mental as in literal! Haha kasi di ako nakatulog nun and nabobother ako SA boss ko. So I guess ang stressor ko nun ay [textspeak!] boss ko. Buti na lang di ko na sya boss ngaun and naka cope up na ako sa work. Ang meds ko is zycloran, pero di na ko nakakapang pa check up sa doctor ko kasi feeling ko un lang din naman ang sasabihin nya at nakaka bili ako ng zycloran sa Mercury kahit wala akong reseta haha! May nabasa akong thread about psychotherapy feeling ko magiging ok ako dun. Sana may ma recommend po kayo. Thanks!

Sis paano dina-diagnose ang panic attact or anxiety? Sasabihin mo lang ba mga symptoms? May series of tests ba? Naisip ko lang bigla iresearch mga nararamdaman and itong panic and anxiety attack ang lumabas.

Ilan sa mga nararamdaman ko:
*Palpitations (sometimes naghahabol na ako halos ng hininga)
*Andami kong fears and what ifs. Sobrang advance ko mag-isip ng masamang mangyayari
*Lamig na lamig ako to the point na nanginginig ako pero pawis na pawis paa, kamay pati armpits ko
*Hirap ako matulog and kahit complete sleep ko parang walang laman utak ko. Wala akong maabsorb.
*Latang-lata ako and nahihilo
*May part ng katawan ko na namamanhid, kadalasan sa paa
*Hindi ako makakain, di ko ma-swallow maski water.
 
Natatakot ako mga sis. Hindi ko din alam sino o anong right person kakausapin ko. I can?t discuss it with my family, i don?t think maiintindihan nila yung mga bagay na kinatatakot ko.

^Thanks sis. Siguro nga kulang din ako sa dasal kaya ang bilis mag-escalate ng fears ko plus pinalala pa ng caffeine intake since nightshift ako. Madalas kasi inaantok ako sa gabi kaya need ko ng caffeine, di kasi ako makatulog kapag oras ng sleep ko.

Nakapag-take na ako ng online test. Anxiety (100%), tension (90%) and depression (81%). Puro extremely severe ang nakalagay.

Ayaw ko sana na dito magpost since GT is my happy place pero I dont know where to run. I tried to talk to my bf about this pero sabi niya normal daw ito sa tao and i just need to take a rest. So wala akong choice but to cry alone. Ayaw ko tong feeling na ito pero ang hirap hirap itaboy. And ang sad part ang hirap makahanap ng tao na maiintindihan ka.

@mysterioza_me, it sounds like you have anxiety disorder. Those are classic symptoms. Not to aggravate your worries but there could be more. Thankfully, they can be managed even without drugs for some people depending on severity. I am not taking anything for it. I tried but the side effects are horrible, I stopped it. Yoga and exercise help a lot in minimizing the symptoms. As of this writing, I am experiencing symptoms of it. I feel cold, muscle twitches, globus hystericus, and I feel detached from myself. I learned to live with it, I guess.

^^Thanks sis. I?ll keep your advice in mind. Sa ngayon idadaan ko muna sa prayer. Gustuhin ko man iwasan ang tao at lugar na nagca-cause nito wala akong magagawa.

^Dun din ako takot sa side effect ng gamot. Kaya as much as possible ayaw ko.

I talked to bf again last night, mas maayos na usapan na. He told me na napapansin din niya changes ko. Hirap daw ako magwind up and advised to seek for professional help kung sapalagay ko kailangan ko na.

"Yung parang jolt that wakes you up? Maybe, or it can be sleep apnea.

I learned that anxiety is also a symptom of perimenopause syndrome which can happen 10 years before the actual menopause. I am turning 47 soon, so I am in that stage already.

I've had this since I was a kid but it just went away and it wasn't properly diagnosed. Last year, I was brought to ER because of difficulty breathing and it was diagnosed as anxiety attack. Last week, I was sent to ER again because of this.

I had psychiatrist consultation last year and was given prescription but because I didnt want to rely on meds, I tried to control it and it went away. Last week, i had no choice but to take the meds because it was getting worse.

Is there anyone here who experienced this? If so, what did you do?

ang problem ay kung nag attack napakahirap po. try to visit my doctor in Cardinal Santos Medical Center - Dr Winnie Lim Khoo magaling po siya at madaling kausap. Down to earth pa

HI,

Have anyone tried online tests for anxiety and depression? I have tried multiple but I am not sure if they are accurate.

Also, I have been searching for a good psychiatrist that is open during weekends. I feel that my anxiety is not getting better.  I can feel my heartbeat is going faster and difficulty sometimes with my breathing.

I hope someone can suggest and hopefully within Quezon City.

Someone recommended cannabis as well, but I asked my cousin who is a doctor and she said DON'T. Cause there is really no proven studies that it can help and worst it can make it worst.

I was diagnosed with a mental illness late 2016 and I would say I am very thankful for my family/relatives for they brought me to a psychiatrist.

I am handling people at work and it all started when something happened at work and I needed to do my job and discipline some subordinates and then followed by days where I was not able to sleep because of the different thoughts that?s coming to my head (insomnia) and the fact that I did not have sleep adds up to my anxieties that I got the feeling that I will be ill or die soon. I asked my family to bring me to the ER twice, was not able to go to work for several days, talked to a nun and a priest because I was really confused on what was happening to me. I am a cry baby but during that time I cannot get my self to cry just to get it off my chest, I was only feeling an overwhelming fear and guilt. Basta mga sis before nagpa consult sa psychiatrist maraming nangyari sa akin that time na bad or odd things na hindi ko maipaliwanag.

The psychiatrist gave me some meds and I did not went back after the first consultation because the meds work and was able to get back to my old self after two weeks. Sabi niya ang mga nangyari daw sa akin ay nangyayari sa mga taong matatalino.

Forward Dec 2018, what happened in 2016 unfortunately came back and this time the psychiatrist told me that since this is the second attack, medication will take 1 yr minimum. I told her about my concerns in taking meds for a long time and she said that I do not have to worry about it and focus on the benefits that I will get now in taking them.

I had a history of bullying during my childhood and my workplace now and growing up mabilis din talaga akung makabahan and matakutin din like takot ako sa pusa. It is hard but I am trying to be strong for my family and think that I am enjoying a lot of blessings that healthy people do not have.

The other day my boss told me that during meetings there are instances when they see that my face or cheeks are moving (involutarily). It bothered me but then I thought that was a good thing that he told me so I can discuss it with my doctor.

Last night, I was in tears while reading some of the posts here because I know how hard it is. I feel you sissies and I am facing it the right way by asking for professional help. In terms of gastos-I know God will provide. Sana mapagtyagaan ko.

I already stop seeing videos and following others in FB nakakapraning pag marami kang pinapasok sa utak mo na kung [textspeak!] ano.

I do have Social Anxiety. 

Most of the time I dread going to the toilet or passing through hallway na meron ako makakasalubong.  I have problem with people getting too close with me, parang ayaw tanggapin ng comfort zone ko and I feel very guilty kasi mababait sila but I just can't eat lunch with them or have a normal conversation ng hindi nagpapanic or hindi na anxiety.  Most of the time, i don't give eye contact kasi its too unbearable for me to look them straight in the eye pag meron silang ineexplain sa akin.  I get very nervous kasi baka akala nila i am flirting with them (now, this is subsiding).

Just now, i don't get invites anymore kasi i think I am projecting an aura na hindi sila invited makipag kaibigan sa akin which is driving me nuts.  They don't know that its the fear of interacting that's inhibiting me from moving forward with them.  The thing is, gusto ko magbitiw sa work but i have been jumping from one company to another and still the same situation.

Sa simula pag bagong environment, I am okay kasi I don't care pa about them.  But eventually, when they try to get too close with me, I get afraid of them for some reason.  Whenever I hear their voice, my body suddenly jumps as if afraid. 

I am not sure if anybody of you experience this.

Then I decided to consult a psychiatrist na since wala naman daw nakikita sakit sakin. The medications helped me a lot. Until after 10 months, I found out that I have thyroid problem, na pwede pala symptoms nun yun mga nafi-feel ko like anxiety, insomnia, etc. Do consult an endocrinologist na din to rule out thyroid disease.

Hypothyroidism can cause anxiety so first make sure to have that checked. You can take apple cider vinegar for acid reflux and for thyroid issues. Just make sure to dilute it with water. If you are advised to take thyroid pills, it's very important to take it with empty stomach and at least 2 hours before taking any medication.

Instead of worrying or self medicating, how about consulting with a neurologist just to see if you have physical manifestations and if mood stabilizers can help?  You might be advised to seek psychotherapy if its really more of depression than anything else.  Good luck ladies!

I sometimes wake up having an attack i suppose pero base lang lahat sa google. First check up ko with psych sa feb 12, not sure kung neuro psych sya,
nacheck na thyroid ko normal lahat.
when i have attacks di na rin ako nakaktulog. what i usually do, Listen to Marconi Union's Weightless. Since sumasabay daw ang rhythm nitong music na ito sa heartbeat, nakakabawas ng anxiety. I also walk pero aimlessly saka may tulay dito sa amin takot ako i have parallel vertigo rin.
I write on my journals. I write 10-20 blessings a day. following rhonda byrne's the magic.
sana maging ok ako after session sa makati med. expensive and d covered ng card. hoping i can get accurate diagnosis.

I know someone who was diagnosed with anxiety disorder.  If it something that grows deeper, better to consult doctor for medications. Yung friend ko also medicated pero she switched to alternative and natural medicines.  Essential oils has has been helping her.  Lavender oil has a calming effect. Actually kaya naintroduce ako sa Essential oils dahil sa kanya. Although nagEO kami kasi sa allergic rhinitis naman ni hubby.
Anyway, its' great to a person who has anxiety attack to have a good support system .

Panic attacks became an integral part of my sister’s life and it was just a terrible period in our life and if it weren’t for excellent doctors and drugs like Kratom, but she couldn’t get rid of it. I’ll say right away that this is a story from my life and there is no advertising here and this is the most honest post on this forum. Viki began to experience panic attacks at school and shortly afterwards she switched to home schooling. Panic attacks became less frequent, but nevertheless she could not get rid of them. Doctors suggested we try Kratom. I heard about it before but never used it and we decided to take a chance. I recognized does walgreen sell kratom (https://thegoldenmonk.com/buy-kratom/buy-kratom-walgreens/) and found various types of kratom at an affordable price. Soon, she began to feel better and I could not even imagine that the effect would be so quick. Also, her nervous system has become more stable. Thank you for listening to my story!

My physician advised me to do general checkup, ecg, xray and other blood chem where done even hormones test since i have pcos. all test were normal aside sa subclinical hypothyroid ko and multinodular non toxic goiter. After a week, i was diagnosed GERD na din im not sure kung nakatrigger si stress pero kasi sobrang sedentary [textspeak!] lifestyle ko non. Mas naging severe [textspeak!] anxiety [textspeak!] of the symptoms ng gerd. sobrang sensitive ko na rin makabasa about sa mga cancer. sobra akong natrigger sa mga ganun.
then neto lang, nagpasychiatrist nko [textspeak!] i couldn't manage my anxiety anymore plus nagpapanic attacks na din ako.

I suffer from depression and anxiety attacks din. Minsan kala ko heart attack na and then i realize its just panic attack. Ang hiral ng panic attack and always being anxous. Kaya nagccause sya lalo ng suicidal thoughts ko kasi i just want to escape.
My doc prescribed me Prodin and it's really helping me.
Nakakainis lang na bakit ang hina ko. Before ang tapang tapang ko, ngayon konting stress lang nadedepress and anxiety ako.
Narealize ko, mashado ko bineybi ang sarili ko. I stayed away from things that causes stress. Like cold shower, scary movies, etc.
So nagbasa ko ng ways to make yourself become more resilient. Ayun nga, cold showers daw and putting yourself in uncomfortable scenarios. I want to train myself to be mentally tougher.

^^Kaya mo yan sis! I was diagnosed with panic attack nung 2018. Natrigger ng family problem yung akin. Done labs and all came back normal kaya nirefer ako sa neuropsych. No regrets at all kasi nakatulong naman talaga. I also joined a group in FB, ginaya ko rin mga advice doTama nga rin ang doc ko, kailangan tulungan natin ang sarili natin.. wag nalang intindihin mga bagay na wala tayong control.

Nakakapagod yung magpapadala sa ER because of symptoms similar sa heart attack tapos lalabas ng ER na normal.. 4 months na ganon ako, feeling ko akala ng mga tao sa ospital baliw ako. Makita ba naman ako pagpasok na naninigas mga kamay at naghahyperventilate, ilalagay sa critical care section ng ER, papalibutan ng nurses and doc, only to find out na it's another panic attack.. hays. I also stopped blaming people na cause ng stress ko, kasi ako lang din ang nahirapan, hindi sila and actually, wala naman sa kanila na nagkaganon ako, so why bother. Let go and let GOD nalang.. I must say I am happier now.. May mga taong nawala at nilayuan ko, and it was all worth it.. sana pala dati ko pa ginawa, lol. Pero ganon talaga, nasa huli ang lesson eh.
