It has been a while and I apologize for that. Life has been crazy busy, in a good way. But sometimes when you are super busy and get stressed out it can bring the panic attacks back up again. I have been having several attacks per day lately and as much as I want to be frustrated and angry about it, it is important to remember that this is completely normal and is bound to happen in times of stress and when you are super busy. I just keep in mind that 2 minutes of anxiety every once in a while is okay, I can handle it and try to continue to do what I was doing.
Your attitude towards these periods of stress and anxiety is so important. If you have a panic attack after a panic-free period and think to yourself "Oh no. It's happening again. I thought I was done with this! Why is it happening again? This is not fair. I hate my life" etc....I guarantee that it will take you longer to get back to normal. Do your best to remember that, if you are a panic attack sufferer, it never completely goes away. It will be with you forever. You are not curing yourself, you are learning to accept and live with the panic attacks. And while this acceptance will probably make them go away for extended periods of time, there is a definite possibility that you will experience them again while you are really stressed out or busy. And that is normal. And that is okay. The panic attacks will not hurt you. It does not mean that you are spiraling out of control. Use it as a time to practice the CBT skills that you have learned.
Positive attitude is everything.
