I had a panic attack 2 days ago, still recovering

That’s right, I did, in Las Vegas no less, at a Cheesecake Factory. It kind of came out of nowhere, but there were events leading up to it.

I scheduled a meet-up back in October, had a bunch of people sign up, only two showed up. I was anxious before, thought I was fine after the fact but later that night, I had one of the worse panic attacks I’ve ever had.

I got really dizzy and felt like I was falling. I then felt like I was going to projectile vomit, and went to the bathroom, with my husband’s help, but didn’t vomit.

I came back to the table still feeling like I was in one of those rides where your hands and feet are tied and it goes in a circle in various directions. It wouldn’t stop, the only way it helped was when I was walking, and even then I wasn’t much better.

Went back to the hotel that night and I passed out, woke up and we came home, and I was still exhausted, hell I still am.

It takes a lot to come back from a panic attack, physically. It takes a toll on your body, and the only thing you can do is rest. I’m hoping by the time this weekend is over I’ll be better

  1. Ugh panic attacks! Every time I have one I talk directly to my lizard brain: “really dummy? You’re going to freak out in the cereal aisle? The CEREAL AISLE? WHAT IS WRONG WITH CEREAL?” Hang in there girl you will start to feel better soon!
