Red face Re: how to prevent an anxiety attack.

What gets you out of anxiety? (besides meds)

I used to drink to deal with anxiety,

now I drink hot water flavored with stevia,

sometimes hot tea but lately just hot water,
holding on to the cup as a buffer between people.
jeff is going to a big gathering tomorrow with

a friend of his. I do not want to go, lots of food and drinking.
I don't want to be tempted food wise. It is a christmas party and I won't know any one. So I am not going. Glad that hubby is going with his friend. He wanted to go but would not go alone.
So that is how I am dealing with my anxiety.

This forum helps calm me down immensely. My job is a constant source of anxiety lately and I fear the worst is yet to come.

Thank you so much for this post! I agree who heartedly with the PDF and how grounding can be an effective way to manage a panic attack.

For me, deep breathing is key. I close my eyes and try to cut off all my other senses and other stimuli to focus only on my breath. I'll also try to remove myself from the panic-inducing situation. Sometimes, however, this is impossible because it may not be able to be identified or there may be no reasonable escape.

Another technique I use is I tell myself positive affirmations. I will tell myself things that make me feel good, things that combat what I fear, things that are true and combat the lie.

Unfortunately, this is very much a work in progress and the majority of the time I still have to resort to my medication to experience significant relief. I am working on these things with my therapist and recovery counselor.

I have to remember that emotions are tricksters and sometimes they lie to you. Remember what you know to be true and get the upper hand.
