I go through panic every day that rips me apart. I am in agony. It is not caused by anything mental, environmental or physical. Does anyone have these symptoms where they are unable to function?

Hi sierrasipad,
I am sorry you are dealing with such extreme panic. It sounds really difficult. Have you spoken to your doctor? Are you taking anything for it?
Would mindfulness meditation be a possibility to manage this?
Personally, I don't experience this so I can't really relate other than to read how you describe it and feel for you. I really hope you can find something to ease things.
Wishing you well,
bawbcat

Do you find spirituality helpful? I want to learn more about accessing personal spirit guides of any religion.

I found Buddhist teachings to be EXTREMELY helpful. Yoga was also very helpful. Also, take heart in the fact that, while it feels excruciating, a panic attack cannot kill you.

Sometimes I wish it would...I had an experience the other day where the fear was causing me to jerk uncontrollably and I was completely desperate. There was nothing for me to hold on to. I felt the panic subside as a comforting presence seemed to soothe me. I thought it was an angel so I asked if it would always be there for me. Since those 2 days ago I haven't had panic as bad. I am not Christian but I agree with some of their spiritual beliefs.

I have severe issues with anxiety as well, but mine stems from a Borderline Personality Disorder that developed as a child as a result of abuse at home, abuse at school and bullying outside of skill. It was ingrained in me that I am good for nothing and when things go wrong, I freak out and start having panic attacks which send me into full blown rapid cycling. I have it ingrained so badly in my head that I am good for nothing I actually expect to fail at almost everything I do. Funny thing though, with the combination of my own unique spirituality and using a number of types of anxiety reducing methods(One being DBT which is loosely based on Zen Buddhism), I am actually able to cope better. Spirituality is personal and can be a wonderful thing if a person learns to identify what your true beliefs are. Just as case and point, I am prescribed Ativan for anxiety, to take as needed. I took 1 mg on Thursday, and it was the first I took in over 2 months. I have started to focus my anxiety and channel it into the positive. It has drastically improved my bowling. Instead of having to take an ativan before or during to calm myself down I channel it into my game. It doesn't always work, but I did get a 612 series one week(having a 223 and 222 on my second and 3rd game). I've had a number of strong weeks as a result of rechanneling my nervous energy.

I hope this helps. I just want you to know that there is reason to have hope, that by learning how to harness your nervous energy you can actually be more productive and more successful in your life. Good luck.

I want to believe that the good energy will prevail over the tide of rushing anxiety that sabatoges me. I want to move on from the dehabilitating devastation. I seek out answers and I can not find a rock of consistency that keeps me safe from harm. There is no key to my prison.
