Panic attack

I don't think I have written in a diary since I was probably 12 years old. I grew up in South America. I saw so many things a child should never see. This caused some PTSD but I had no clue until I was an adult. I've struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember. it was always manageable except for a brief time in my very early 20s. And now I'm 30 and having the most severe panic attacks I have ever had. It's hard to tell what triggered them. The migraines that all of a sudden started happening? Oh no! I must have an aneurism or a mass in my brain! … panic attack… or maybe it was when my blood work came back with high cholesterol? Oh no! I'm gonna have a heart attack any second now! I have to stop eating! I'm so hungry but I don't want to die!!… panic attack… chest is tight fingers tingling. That's it! I'm about to die!! … panic attack… and nobody understands. And I'm told it's all in my head and to just calm down…

Rush of Thoughts and Stress

03-08-16

9:07pm

 

    It's been a rough second semester and I'm feeling the pressure. I'm writing to relieve the tension in my body.

I'm starting to have rush of thoughts again. To be fair, I've been consuming an average of one and a half cup of coffee a day. What can I say? It's exam time again.

The rush of thoughts contain the same old. Irrational fears, intrusive images, and unpleasant feelings.

 

Now, I am afraid of somehow developing schizophrenia, I am worried about failing my exam for the third time, and I'm afraid that people will misjudge me for my mental illness.

E rush of thoughts is making it difficult to study. I think I should abandon the coffee.

When I can't sleep

So one night I can't sleep and a game just came into my head. Might sound wierd when I explain it in a second, but puts me to sleep most of the time. So if you want to try it here it goes.

 

You have the alphabet A-Z as we all know.

Chose a subject, which can be as broad or narrow fielded as you like. Such as country names or character names from a certain movie.

This is where the alphabet comes in. Starting at A, think about something begining with that letter that relates to your subject you chose. Then work your way through the rest of the alphabet in order.

 

I know it hard to explain on here, so let me walk you through an example to help.

Lets start by chosing our subject, say fruit. Starting at the letter A, we could say Apple. Then we move to B, might say Banana. Repeat this for every letter that you can, progressing towards Z. If you got through the alphabet then do another round, chosing a different subject.

 

Ok now lets run through a broad subject like geograpghy. Say we progressed to the letter F, we could say forest, as it is related in some way. Then repeat again like the other example.

 

So there it is, like I said it works for me most of the time. Might have to do a few rounds, but does really put me to sleep
