Make sure that everything is locked just to calm yourself. After that try and find something that doesn't take any effort. Like watching tv, or playing solitaire or something like that. It helps for me.

-concentrate on your breathing and open a window for some fresh air.

Usually works for me. Good luck.

Watch this:




Apparently a panic/anxiety attack doesn't last longer than 30 minutes and peaks for about 10 minutes, so breathe, and ride it out.

Deep breathes to calm yourself .. then a warm, soothing bath with some soft music works for me .. close your eyes and try and relax into the warmth of the water and the music ..

Pretty much this. Just distract yourself.

I would crank some music and sing to my hearts content (seeing that you're home alone)

I have a family member with a really bad anxiety problem. Usually what they do is find the room in the house which they feel the most relaxed in, and do something that distances then from the feeling. Something like watching a movie or playing a computer game. Usually she listens to music too and once she's distanced herself she starts to calm down.

Maybe ask your doctor to prescribe you Ativan (Lorazepam) SL (Sublingual) which is an Anxiolytic. That would help to calm you down during cases of an anxiety attack.

If your house doesn't get broken into at least 1 time a week. You have a pretty good chance no one will come. Keep a phone near you and just erase the fear, lock up, don't answer the door for anyone unless you were knowing they were coming. take a shower. Make some food. Throw on a movie. You will be fine.

Do some jumping jacks, lift weights, run on the spot, burn off some of that nervous energy. This may sound weird, but you can go outside and just plant your hands on the ground in the grass or hug a tree, these help ground your energy. Go for a walk or run. Try to not identify with it, pretend your watching the anxiety from a 3rd persons perspective.

Chills and stomach ache? Are you sure you aren't getting sick? I think it's the season after all...

Breathe in through the nose and out the mouth - this slows down breathing rate, which slows down heart rate to a calming pace.

If you're feeling anxious, what might it be thats causing the anxiety? Anything going on in ur life that's stressing you out or is worrying you (no matter how unreasonable it sounds outloud)?

Why not? Consulting a doctor would be a smarter move than listening to what CDC has to say. Also, if the anxiety is an isolated case not related to any other medical conditions, taking an anxiolytic can help in severe cases of an acute attack. So asking a doctor about it, will be up to the doctors discretion to either prescribe it or not.

I've seen drugs like Ativan work great, and I've also seen the same drug make things worse. It's best to talk with a psychologist, find treatment, and they can suggest what drug works best for your individual situation. Also, it won't cost anything, get a referral from your family doctor and you're covered under BC medical.

Anxiety is brutal, it can rip a life apart if untreated. Get some help, best of luck, it's not an easy road.
