Night Panic Attacks
God, they are such a bastard! If its during the day and I feel a panic attack coming, I can literally tell my brain to shut up and it does. But when I get woken by one, I am so confused, cause I can't think when I first wake up, it just feels like the world is ending. Its horrible. Today I woke up at 6am and was like, ****, something is really really wrong, my arms are all wrong, oh god I think I'm dying. But no. I haven't had any for years, and now- I'm stressed cause I have finals exams next week, I am awaiting biopsy results for a potentially cancerous lump on my neck, apparently there is also something wrong with my lungs that needs further examination AND I have to try and sort a research project I need to do, in Brazil, that I am supposed to be leaving for in two weeks, only the doctors tell me I shouldn't travel. So my brain is taking out all this stress on me at night.
What do you guys do to get rid of the night time panics when you aren't even awake properly?
