I had a rough day yesterday. I was stressed and my anxiety level was very high. I was able to keep myself from having a panic attack, but the anxiety attack was still pretty rough. The Valium helped. I also used some breathing techniques, just simple breathing in and out, not too fast and not too slow. The breathing helps me stay calm and focusing on it also helps me forget what I’m anxious about, even if it’s just for a minute or two.

Today seems like a better day. I have a normal amount of anxiety. I’m more frustrated than anything else, and I don’t really know why. I generally don’t know why I feel the way I do. I’m going to go get a bunch of stuff done. Being productive often makes me feel better.

  1. Those must be hard on you to get emotional and physically yanked around like that.

    i went to a talk last night on thoughts and emotions and there interplay. one of the speakers stated that from a worked up state, whether a panic attack, anxiety attack or simply a worked up state, it is best to introduce a temperature shock. the speaker suggested an ice pack to the back of the neck. she also said there are studies that show that is actually the most effective method to come down from the heightened state.
