The other day at a grocery store, a young girl started whispering transphobic things to her boyfriend about me. I had a panic attack in the car. But for the first time I said to myself, ‘What other people thing of me is none of my business. Their ignorance is not my fault.’ Trans or not, no one is alone. We are all here together. #lgbtq #staystrong #panicattack #youcangetthroughit #queer #informtheignorant #asd #luckymyitaliandidntcomeoutdammit
Hi guys, Please see my stories for the longer version of this video (about me). I've set this account up today so I can help others who are going through a tough time. It's taken a lot of courage to do this and I'm proud of myself for speaking out as I do believe talking about your worries helps. #mentalhealth is a hard talking point for some and too many suffer in silence. I refuse to do this anymore and want to use my experience to help others. If you are going through a similar situation I do hope you will get in contact.

My poor dog is so terrified of being alone. This is what he does as soon as I grab my purse to leave. 🥺 #astro #panicattack #doganxiety #hehatesbeingalone
For the anxious little (and even big) minds out there, a great grounding technique inspired by the wonderful @littlewuppy (check their page out) to regroup the thoughts and focus at a time of heightened anxiety 🙇🏼‍♂️💆🏻‍♀️
I don’t like taking medication... I’m not saying I don’t like medication or am anti-medication. Since being consistent with medication, it has probably been fundamental with reducing the significant severity of my depression and anxiety. BUT I don’t like having to take any medication. I usually wait until the last bare-able minute before taking pain or flu relief... part of the reason I think is my preference for my body to manage by itself; part is my preference to be as natural as possible; and the biggest part is the act of swallowing a tablet of any composition just makes me feel uncomfortable. So when I register the first signs that I’m managing ‘on my own’, my initial instinct is to stop... usually instantly. You can probably guess I don’t have the best track record for being compliant with medication and, with my tendency to harm, any possible withdrawal effects really only support my initial reaction... for the last two weeks I’ve been struggling with my medication compliance. I’ve taken myself off my night medication for insomnia without liaising with my psychiatrist at all, but to my surprise sleep hasn’t been too bad. Because of this my brain is convinced even more that coming off my antidepressant would be fine, or just try it... with extra bonus that I won’t have to keep swallowing medication
Currently just focusing on my breathing right now. My dad is picking me up in like 15 minutes and then I am going to my first dental appointment of the day. My second is at 2pm so at least I get a little break in between. #anxiety #anxietyattacks #anxietyattack #panicattack #panicattacks #depression #ptsd #blog #giveaway #blogpost #anxietypost #anxietyhelp #anxietyisreal #anxietysupport #anxietyrelief #anxietyproblems #anxietyrecovery #anxietyfighter #anxietyawareness #anxietysucks #anxietysucksballs #insomnia #dentalwork #dentist

FAITH IS A REFUSAL TO PANIC. - D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones . Stop worrying long enough to hear God's voice. He speaks softly into the depths of your being. Your mind weaves webs of anxious confusion, but as God's thoughts rise up within you, they become entangled in those sticky webs of worry. God's voice is muffled and all you hear is white noise. . As the Spirit to quiet your mind so that you can hear God's thoughts. Do not be defeated by the noise of your own thinking. Sit quietly in God's Presence, letting His thoughts replace your worrisome thinking. . . . . . . #panicattack #worry #worryfree
Steps to helps DE-STRESS, calm ANXIETY & improve overall health! ❣️ _ Step 7: Getting stuff off your chest. 🤷🏻‍♂️ _ You mightn’t even realise it, but carrying a worried head on your shoulders every day, full of pent-up emotions, creates a lot of physical tension too. You’d be amazed at what a release it can be to get things off your chest. Your muscles can relax a bit, and you can literally feel like a weight has been lifted. Feeling good physically makes you feel better mentally. It’s all connected, see? 😱 _ Talking out loud about what’s going on in your head and explaining it to someone else, even if you think it doesn’t make sense, helps you to clarify the things that are worrying you. Saying things out loud, often makes them less scary, and at least by having to sort through your feelings you know a bit more about you’re dealing with. Keeping things inside only lets them build up and get confusing. _ Sometimes it’s the things you don’t want to get off your chest that have the most benefit to your body and mind! Start talking today and don’t look back, benefits will be glorious. 👊🏼🙂 _ • Breath deeper ✅ (Remember the body needs oxygen to heals) • Relax muscles around the chest, shoulders, neck and jaw! 😍 ✅ • Clears the mind ✅... more space for planning, creating, scheduling, learning and working on new ideas! 💡 • Makes you feel pretty fucking awesome! ✅✅ _ #anxiety #stressfree #stressedout #stress #stressrelief #anxietyrelief #anxietyattack #painrelief #panicattacks #panicattack #pain #neckpain #nervepain #chestpain #shoulderpain #scoliosis #lowbackpain #yogadublin #irishphysio #physicaltherapy #physicaltherapist #dublingym #diaphragm #breathedeep #breatheinbreatheout #wimhof
I’ve lost count how many times I’ve ended up in the emergency ward convinced I’m having a heart attack.⠀ ⠀ I wasn’t. Just a Panic Attack.⠀ ⠀ One of the most common fears of an anxiety or panic attack sufferer is that they are having a heart attack.⠀ ⠀ Shortness of breath, dizziness, numbness of hands and chest pain are unfortunately symptoms of both.
✨Credit to artist ✨ I’ve had scoliosis since I was 14, I’ve had so many scans, x-rays and doctor appointments. My angle of my spine fluctuating from 55 - 48 degrees. My hip hurting to point I need a stick to help me walk because of a lot of pain. ♿️ My disability may be invisible but this doesn’t mean I don’t have one and I shouldn’t be invalidated for what I can and can’t do. 👀 I also suffer from chronic neck pain which isn’t visible and does make me feel unwell for weeks 😷 #chronicneckpain #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicpainawareness #chronicwarrior #chronicallyill #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicpainawareness #chronicillnesslife #scoliosis #scoliosisawareness #scoliosiswarrior #lordosis #kyphosis #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #emetophobia #anxiety #panicattack #inpain #painful #disabled #disability 🤢
Hace unos años me encerre en mi mundo por vivir crisis de ansiedad continuas, tenia un miedo grandisimo, lloraba mucho y tenia muchos sintomas relacionados que afectaban mi salud. Ahora es muy raro tener una crisis de ansiedad o un ataque de panico cosa que me pone muy feliz porque crei imposible sentirme tan relajada a pesar de todas las dificultades que a travieso. Hoy me siento a mirar la naturaleza y me siento tranquila y libre.
When my anxiety is worse I find this extremely helpful to identify possible triggers. I’m bad at being able to figure out on my own what could’ve cause an anxiety attack or just a lower mood, and used to give up and let it take over, as I thought nothing was causing it and there was nothing I can do. Now I look at this and I find it really helpful! I hope it helps you too✨ #anxietyrecovery #panicattack #panicdisorder #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #anxiety #anxietyrelief #anxietyattack #depression #depressionhelp
Вы боитесь летать на самолетах? Мне кажется, это один из самых неудачных страхов путешественника, ибо, как ни крути, самолет - максимально удобный и безопасный транспорт для путешествий. Мне нравятся самолеты, я не боюсь летать и люблю это удивительное чувство на взлете, когда тебя слегка вдавливает в кресло, и в то же время словно отрывает на мгновение от его поверхности. Секундная гравитационная поломка. Мои предыдущие полеты прошли просто отлично,но в этот раз что-то пошло не так. Точнее, сейчас я уже понимаю, что именно, но во время полета в Грецию я этого не понимала совершенно, что сильно усугубило ситуацию. Это была паническая атака, а если точнее, несколько приступов, которые настигали меня в течение всего полета. Были ли для этого причины? Фактически нет. Но у панических атак может и не быть причин для возникновения. Итак, симптомы: ✔️Чувство нарастающей тревоги ✔️Учащение пульса ✔️Трудности с дыханием (ощущение нехватки воздуха, невозможность сделать глубокий вдох) ✔️Тошнота, не связанная с процессом пищеварения ✔️Ощущение изменения давления (это может быть жар в голове, предобморочное состояние, холод в конечностях) ✔️Тремор (трясутся руки, может даже все тело, нервные движения) ✔️Паника Вы можете искать физическую причину этого состояния, но безрезультатно. Ее нет. От непонимания, что происходит, паника только усиливается, т.е. становится хуже. Пытаться взять себя в руки бесполезно, это не волнение перед выходом на сцену. Если с вами случилось нечто подобное, держите инструкцию: ❗Осознайте, что это паническая атака. Это не физический недуг, это работа вашей психики. ❗Отрегулируйте дыхание. Дышать в пакетик - это не шутка :D Это действительно помогает. Дышите глубоко и ровно, концентрируйтесь на дыхании. ❗Отвлеките мозг. Мне помогло чтение статьи на английском, прослушивание ритмичной музыки с концентрацией только на ударных. ❗Если вы не одна/один, сообщите об этом тем, кто с вами. Очень помогают медленные поглаживания по рукам и спине.

Helping can give a lot back. If you can’t, protect yourself and don’t, but recognize when you can and aren’t • Reaching out a helping hand when one is required might very well be what you needed to find the light yourself.
Trust me when I say staying positive doesn’t have to mean that you’re constantly happy. Keep your head held high, focus on getting through the shit times because there is always light at the end of the tunnel and things will get better🌈🤞🏽💜 #depressionhelp #depressionkills #speakup #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthrecovery #anxietyattack #panicattack #betterdaysarecoming #staystrong
