Chest tightening, body temperature rising, tears forming…
Panic Attacks Suck! I know the feeling all too well. For those who don’t know I have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Anxiety disorder and Panic Disorder. Before I was diagnosed and taking the proper medication, I would have crazy panic attacks.
They are a terrible feeling. It almost feels like someone is sitting on your chest, and you become so angry that you just want to scream but all the while are wanting to cry. At the same time, your face is so red because your internal body temperature feels like your blood is about to boil. I would feel awful for the person I was around at the time. They would often feel the rage I was feeling.
Without the ability to regulate emotions effectively, I would often have an overwhelming feeling of rage. Someone would hurt my feelings, and I wanted to ensure that they knew how I was feeling but worse. I was often very rude.
Does any of that sound familiar?
We have determined we know what it feels like. But we need to know how to give ourselves support during these times. Let’s be honest, we can’t keep up with panic attacks for the rest of our days.
Since I have started these things it has been life-changing. I won’t be able to go back to the way I use to handle them.
These babies are hands down the 1st thing that helped me when I would have a panic attack. This is one of the reasons why I fell so in love with them. Wild Orange, was the first essential oil that I used when I was having a panic attack. But there are so many different essential oils that also can help with the nervous system. Contact me directly to learn what oil would be best for you.
This is has been life-changing. There are so many people that say I don’t want to go on medication, it will change me as a person, or that you want to try the more natural way. They won’t change the person you are but help you become the person you are. They allow you to have the chance to live a more natural lifestyle.
Therapy has taught me so many different amazing techniques to be able to help calm the mind. Such as Deep Breathing and mindfulness. Any time I feel a panic attack coming on, I focus heavily on my breathing. I breathe in for 3 counts, hold for 3 counts, and release for 3 counts, Repeat. Then focus on my surroundings and start calling them out or naming them in my head. I love to feel rooted in the floor and making myself present in the room.
I don’t want to keep sounding like a broken record but again this was life-changing. I started approximately 6 years ago. It is hard, very hard. I didn’t have a clue what I should be doing when I was meditating I would just sit in the silence and try to think about nothing. About 30 seconds would pass which would feel like 20 minutes. The more I learned, the more I fell in love. I would love you to join me for a Guided Mediation one night.
Well, it is a given that this is apart of my lifestyle. My life has been completely transformed from switching my diet. Following simple recipes such as the ones in the N5Diet. This is everything my business is formed around. The power of nutrition and how it can power our minds. I could really go on for hours on how nutrition can transform your life.
