Are you home alone? Can someone hang out with you and try to make you comfy, or just hang?

Do you know how to do biofeedback? This could possibly make you feel warm on the inside if it is stress or anxiety. It does it for me. Sorry if it something else. If you need help with it, just say so. Best wishes to feeling better.

Jenna, it sounds like a panic attack. I know you suffer from PTSD so I'm sure that an attack like this triggers not so good feelings. I so wish that I could be by your side so that I could hug you and make you feel better. Profiler has a good suggestion with doing biofeedback if you know how. Praying for you Jenna that you have a better day. {{{Hugs}}} πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

I'm sorry you're feeling that way Jenna, I know that's not a fun place to be. You are too stressed out right now and having so little energy to help yourself sucks! You need to enlist in some help from family and friends to be with you and play cards games, eat food and just talk with other people around you. Keeping these feelings bottled up for a long period of time is not healthy and I know we all do it because living with chronic pain is frustrating! I hope you can sort through this in your mind and find your best coping mechanisms. I'm always here to talk!

Jenna, It does sound like you may be having anxiety attack. Is your mom or someone there with you? Someone who can help you get relaxed? I understand being frightened that you may be dying (from your other post), because doctors aren't helping with answers and treatment. It's a very scary place to be.

In 2001 I found myself in the critical care unit, unable to get a good breath. I'd become very weak at college twice and then collapsed at church. I spent four days there, being so weak I couldn't even get out of the bed to use the restroom. It frightened me badly because my children needed me. My vital signs were irregular, I was on oxygen, and no one seemed to know why. I had my hubby bring our girls to the hospital and told them no one knew what was wrong or if I'd ever come home. It was hard, and scary beyond belief! But my girls were stronger than me, and they gave me courage & strength to not give up. Then a pulmonologist was called in, and after several tests he diagnosed a status asthmaticus attack; my very first asthma attack. I spent two more days in the hospital and it took me a month to be able to get around on my own. I live with the fear that I could have another status asthmaticus attack. I have to tote an episode pen and pay close attention to any asthma symptoms. I understand your fear and not wanting to die. I'm sending you many hugs, love, support & prayers! Hang on Jenna, because someone is going to find the solution to help get you better! Don't give up fighting. Hang on to all of us. And like Megan suggested, try to have friends and family keep you company and play games. Be honest about your fears and feelings with them. Let them be your support. Hugs sweetheart! You will overcome this, in Jesus's name I declare it! πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸŒΌπŸ’•
