My friend's having a rough time :( - June 2nd 2010, 03:06 AM

My friend's on a trip right now visiting some relatives and she told me she's been having horrible anxiety. She says she's shaking, feels sick, and can't eat or sleep. This has been going on for two days, and she says she's never had it this bad before. I don't know what to tell her.

It's great that you're trying to support your friend through this. Unfortunately, this is a difficult situation given the distance, however you can still show her your support by talking to her for however long she wants, and just showing her that she has someone there for her. If she's having a particularly hard time, you may want to suggest she talk to someone (be it a parent or other relative) as having support where she is could be just what she needs.
If she feels like this is something she can't get over, and she's not already on medication, you may also want to suggest she see a doctor. Especially if this is something that has been constant, or she's had experiences like this before, seeing a doctor may be the only option she has to calming herself down, as some people with anxiety issues cannot find alternative things that will calm them down and help them overcome a panic attack.

Remember you're worth fighting for
Remember you're not a punching bag
Remember you're not a doormat
Remember you are valuable
Remember you are repairable
Remember you matter
Remember they don't."
