Ride it out unfortunately, if you sense a panic attack building up. Just know that you wont die. And most importantly Do Deep Breathing and try to calm yourself down
Also writing down what's happening in the moment will help u alot
Sounds like dissociation. Unfortunately I’ve been realizing that I struggle with this quite a bit as well :/
What is it like for you
@random_person Overall, I feel super disconnected from where I am and what I’m doing; it’s hard to describe since it’s my “normal.” I’m on autopilot a lot of the time. I feel like I can’t catch my breath or fully take in an experience. I may be present in a space, but mentally I’m not “there.” I get tunnel vision and turn inward into my own thoughts. I feel like time is moving slowly for me but I can’t keep up with others. I can’t process things as quickly as others. I often have to have people repeat what they said or rewind a show to catch exactly what they were saying because I zone out. I’m disconnected from my emotions. I can’t decipher what I want a lot of the time even if it’s just deciding what I want my day to look like. I’m very numbed out. I don’t have an official diagnosis, but this is definitely something that I’ll be bringing up to my therapist. There’s something called dissociative depression, and I can relate to some of those symptoms.
Try mindfulness it helps. I did it today and I feel pretty good. I’m more engaged in my surroundings. I’m more present
What do you mean my mindfulness? Meditation?
@random_person Yeah it’s like meditation. It claims to improve your brain in away to be engaged in the present. And it’s only 6 minutes. I’m not saying it’s going to cure you or anything but it definitely helps. They say you can see improvement if you do it consistently
Don’t get me wrong it keeps trying to suck me in but try mindfulness
