You will think I am an absolute nutcase. When the panic hits, I get shaky, diareah, pace the floor, my mind only thinks of the one thing that is stressing me and I cannot push it out, or if I do, it comes right back. Last night I couldn't even sleep in my bed. I got blankets and pillows and slept on the floor beside my bed! It's a tight space between the bedframe and the dresser. (Maybe my cocoon!)I put an eye mask on and earplugs in! I didn't sleep well, but I did get some sleep. I'm thinking I may have to discuss this with the doctor because they are severe when they hit, thankfully they don't come often. And everytime they come, it is over something normal, that most people just handle. My brain turns it into a catastrophe for a while. I sometimes get to the point where I think I will throw up. If I have to write anything down, my hands shake so bad you can't even read my writing! It is sooooo awful over stuff so simple. Please ask God to help me with these. I am thinking I could be of comfort to someone else but I need to get the comfort myself first.
My heart so breaks for you dealing with these horrid panic attacks. Had them most of my life from childhood and am extremely grateful to the Lord that He delivered me from them through the help of a wonderful therapist. I believe with all my heart that this is a wretched attack on you spiritually. Would strongly recommend that you do talk with a doctor as well as see a good Christian counselor.
May the Lord guide you to complete healing.
