Earlier I felt an attack coming on. So first I took the 'as needed' medications that my Doctor allows me to take. I also did some deep breathing exercises. Another member gave me a link to a 4 in 7 hold 8 release repeat 4 times method. Also I breathed with my hands cupped around my mouth and nose. And I practiced a 3 in 3 hold 3 release method my peer support counselor. Also I walked away the tension building up.
I have three main stresses right now. I am waiting for the State to evaluate my Social Security Disability case. And my Mom is in hospice care right now. Third I have tinnitus ~ ringing in my ears ~ that is causing distress. On April 25th I am scheduled for a MRI. I hope there is nothing inside my head causing this tinnitus ~ I fear I might need an operation. Put together and sometimes these affect me. But when I felt the pressure building up I used my methods to relax and they worked. Now I am in a positive mood.
