Anti depressants - June 19th 2011, 09:24 AM

Hey guys.

So ive been on anti depressants just a little over a week, it had cut my urges back alot. then i forgot to take them the last two days, i had a panic attack last night at youth street, and i couldnt get my breathing normal untill my leader/friend sat infront of me, took my hand and looked into my eyes. i was freaking scared. then BAM and i was fine, i'm breaking apart right now so bad, i'm trying to hold myself together... i dont know what to do, i'm ment to be going back to my doctor, but to get their i have to get my parents to let me get out of school early... and dad will scream at me. god i dont know what to do anymore.

yeah it is important to have them consistently, and when u first start the side effects can be very bad. do ur parents know that u see a doc? cos if they do then could u explain whats happened? panic attacks are very scary when you first experience them, and to be honest the scariness is pretty much the same after the hundredth ( i had panic disorder for 2 and a half years). but there are ways to control them, and to control your breathing. try breathing into a paper bag, that usually helps with the breathing. and just take really deeep breaths, from ur stomach rather than shallow breathing from ur chest. and i know it seems impossible right now, but whilst having a panic attack try to visualise something that makes u happy, and that will calm u down. take care kiwi_bear, and u can PM me if u need to tlk xxx
