panic attack!!

I had a major panic attack. I had severe heart palpitations and it wouldn't stop. I got fuzzy headed and I thought for sure I was dying. I started praying "God, help me!" As I have not had a panic attack like this in years. Maybe since 1994. The heart thing scared me. I had to pop a pill to calm me and I am some better. It was so bad. It was the most frightening minute of my life..... I don't know why the palpitations got so strong. I was playing a computer game and I think I was playing too much and I was stressed, plus it was a tense evening the neighbors earlier were shooting that stupid spud gun and my parents were argiung or cranky and that was stressing me so I think I know why. You can think of nothing during a category 10 panic attack. Only that you feel there is no way out and that you will die.

"A simple man believes everything he hears; a clever man understands the need for proof." Proverbs 14:15-The New English Bible
'O the depth of God's richness and wisdom and knowledge! How unsearchable his judgements are and past tracing out his ways are!'-Romans 11:33

re: panic attack!!

I've never had a panic attack but that sounds terrifying. I can't even imagine how scary that would be.

I hope you're feeling better now!

I've had them! <- 10 on the Richter scale, tsunami leftover - the whole bit.
Just roll through it - it will pass. In doing so, realize that it isn't as bad as it seems!
After having a panic attack like that, I end up kicking myself for going through it!

Hang in there!
