1. I usually mentally beat myself up about having a meltdown, tell myself I'm a terrible mother, wife etc. tell myself to keep it together. Have a good cry.

2. Pretty bad, although if I've gotten the frustration out by banging a baseball bat against the garage floor at 2am my arms are sore (true story)

3. Try to calm myself down, eat a half gallon of ice cream, watch something funny. Collapse in bed from exhaustion.

4. I like to be alone physically but i may try to message a friend, or I have a good shout at God. Lol

That baseball bat thing sounds therapeutic! When I was younger I would trash things when I got angry. It always made me feel better. May have got in trouble for breaking things though!

It felt great! Well besides bending my toddler's bat into a deformed hunk of plastic and the impact on my hands hurting, lol I like to angry clean. Like wash the floors, organize something. Angrily wash the dishes and bang cupboards. Then I feel like I'm getting frustration out but in a productive way. I'm hoping to get a bicycle soon so I can go and just race on some back road, get that energy out.

I'm going to give this my best shot so....here goes nothing. I don't really panic like that, I just stress a lot I guess, but I guess if I was having lots of panic attacks, or panic i general I'd find the source of it and look at the situation. Is this worth stressing over? Do i actually have a reason to be worried? If yes than try to address the problem head on, even though it may be hard sometimes it's best to get things over with sooner rather than later (at least for me) If you are worried about a person, or something you said try talking to that person if things are not that great than try to talk to them, and if that fails than they aren't worth your time anyways. In my case I generally prefer solitude, but if this is a big deal than maybe it's best to find a close friend to talk to, or do what I do and just talk to people online. They can't judge you because they don't know you ,and more often than not they are the perfect relievers. Just (as someone wise once said) find someone you click with. You also mentioned you had children IDK how old they are, but try talking to them maybe? I really don't know, I'm probably way off on this because I don't suffer from panic like that myself...

I like that approach. I admit it's not something I have ever really done. I have more focused on trying to regain some sense of calm in the moment. I think you just gave me an idea too. I think you make good points in there too. You don't have t suffer from panic to have some good ideas on how to approach a situation. Some panic doesn't have an actual identifiable cause, but sometimes it does. It is always helpful when we find a way to get a hold of our thoughts. Because when the mind is racing out of control that makes the body do the same. Thanks for your insight!

My counselor used to tell me your mind is like a train but you are the conductor, you have the ability to steer it, or you can let it go out of control.

Where the mind goes the body follows! It's not always easy to do, but with practice it is possible to learn how to reel in a panicked mind. And you can only get stronger from trying!

This may sound silly or over simpifying, but do you drink a lot of coffee?

I was asked that when I started getting them a lot back in 2000, turned out I had upped my uptake. Paxil to treat it made me pissed off and mean which in my case is really really not a good thing.

Anyways, had a convo with the 2 people who had asked me, they said about some book about all sorts of things attributable to coffee drinking. I reduced how much I had (this included freeze dried crystals WITHOUT water added) and they dissipated save for the occasional I always got which are minor enough to calm myself down on my own.

You are 100% correct in all that you just said. Back when I was in my teens and living at home we drank AT LEAST 5 pots of coffee a day. I did have a lot more panic attacks and general anxiety. Of course back then I did not realize how it was affecting me. Once I was pregnant with my first child I took it down to just 2 cups of coffee a day, and since I was nursing after the pregnancy I stayed at just the 2 cups. I still only have 2 a day. Rarely do I have coffee in the afternoon.

I never took any medication for it, but I know what you mean about medication making you feel that way. If I take Sudafed it seriously makes me feel ragey. I had to take Prednisone for Bell's Palsy once, and they had to take me off of it because I couldn't deal with the extremely hostile mood effects.

It's funny, because I had not made the connection, even though it seems so obvious when they told me.

I was recommended the Paxil because it was supposed to be mild because I prefer not taking meds.
Previously I had taken various meds for an OCD condition I have, and they all made me more inclined to rage. If you notice how I am just busting chops on this, you can imagine that me being on then is really really not a particularly good idea.

Haven't taken any of that stuff since 2001.

But I still have my coffee, only at more reasonable levels.

Meds scare me honestly. I avoid them unless absolutely necessary. Plus, I have known people to have bad side effects from anxiety meds or depression meds.

I always wonder what people on the other side of the screen are really like. I know there are folks who are really very forward in their comments. I tend to get more curious about what they may be going through in life before i become angry or defensive. You never know what someone is facing that makes them who they are online. You're wise to refuse anymore of the Paxil. Some people just keep taking the cure that is worse than the disease.

I used to suffer from panic attacks, but they are pretty much gone these days. But when I did get them, yes, I liked company afterward. Someone to talk to.

this guy looks a bit awkward. You could edit in a box of pads or tampons. Search "cashier" or "cashier funny". They seem to be yielding the best results.

Younger guys tend to feel weird about those items. When I was a cashier men would roll through with their jock itch cream, or condoms and lube etc... it was always weird.

personally if I was buying boxers and you scanned them I wouldn't care.
But if you were bringing me a bra and pantyhose to scan It be awkward.
Especially when I have to find the price tag on the bra

Prevention is the best cure

Reading the Holy Writings, fellowshipping with like-minded ppl on Facebook, helping others clean and/or move stuff, giving someone a ride, creating memes, abstaining from caffeine and sweets, calling my mother, etc.

Nice list. You know, I find that if I am having anxiety troubles on Sunday I usually toy with the idea of staying home from church. I never do, I just REALLY want to. So I go, and the service has a way of helping me feel better.

I prefer solitude. Though I do tend to want someone to talk to. I talk to myself, well have imaginary conversations in my head with people I wish I could talk to. I guess it's a way of venting. I do tend to feel sick and tired. Sometimes emotionally numb

I have been known to call the TBN prayer line. You know just to have some human contact. I'm not an atheist or anything, but I don't think the TBN is always really as for Jesus as they say. But yet I will call them.

My kids have never done that too much now that I think about it. Sometimes people will take pictures with their kids and they are all sticking their tongues out. Actually, it seems people sticking their tongues out for photos is a thing? IT seems to be at least. Not sure why it is!

I remember when people didn't do all this stupid stuff in their photos. I honestly think it comes from being insecure about the photo. Maybe they don't like their faces or something. I rarely take photos and post them anywhere myself.
