On the verge of a panic attack

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — marley howards @ 4:37 am

Have seen this clip from the Today Show the symptoms of a person having a panic attack.  Shortness of breathe, nausea, tingling of hand fingers, blackouts.  And when I thought of my previous days, those were the very things I had experienced.  Thought it was just the weather, but then, I still don’t know if I have the official panic attack.

Also, they said that panic attacks are easily treated by prozac or any anti-depressants or by going to a therapist.  Well, I’m not a big fan of therapy sessions and I don’t really want to admit that I have a disorder.  But with all the work and the pressure, I think I am on the verge of having one.  Everytime I get out of the house and see the building where my office is located, I feel my heart building up and about to explode in my chest.



  1. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble, Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea..
    – Psalms 46:1-2

  2. Antidepressants do work in many cases but can actually do more harm then good for some people. Thanks for the info. 🙂
