Unhappy Is this a panic attack? - July 13th 2010, 02:54 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

(IDK if this is triggering, but it does talk about my thoughs about weight and food)

Okay, so today, I was on the phone with my cousin becasue I really wanted to get sick, and I was talking to her. I talked to her about how I wanted to make myself sick and how I was TERRIFIED to eat anything because I was afraid of gaining weight. I told her how all I wanted was to be beautiful and thin, because that would fix everything. I even talked to her about how my mom is so judgemental and I just want to please her. I told her about my fear of bein rejected, how I wish I never cut and other things like that.

Durring the whole conversation, I was crying(which I haven't cried in like weeks) and I couldn't breath, and I was shaking. All I could think about were all of the bad things that could happen, and I just wanted to stop talking to her, because I'd calm down, but I didn't want to hurt her feelings. But like, honestly, I felt like I was going to die.

... This has only happened once... is this like a panic attack? Is it gonna happen again?

Sounds like it was a panic attack. Don't worry. There is no garuntee that you will have another one, but you might. When u start feeling anxious, try to redirect your thoughts instead of talking about them more. I have found that talking about anything but my worries makes it better until I can be with my therapist to process it. Once I called my friend when I was having a panic attack and he and I talked about video games and church. It was the easiest panic attack I have ever had.
