You've received alot of good advice and I'd go for the taking a walk with her if you could. Get her outside in the fresh air -- walk -- talk -- get her mind distracted by commenting on something that you see while walking. And, I'd definitely follow up with the dr. There are so many anti-depressants available and she could possibly try going on a low dosage of one and see if it helps. Hugs to you both and I wish all the best.
Gently as you can, find the core thought, usually distorted, that is triggering the attack. Usually it's based on irrational fears that disappear when logically challenged. Physically she's got to get rid of the adrenalin she's built up, so an exercise that makes her sweat will help, maybe out in the sunshine and fresh air for a bit. Everybody else here has great advice. Best wishes to both of you.
Maybe she should talk to her doctor about getting on some meds...otherwise she needs to make sure she is getting enough sleep, eating right and maybe take some time to herself like taking a walk or deep breathing exercises, take a bubble bath, anything that relaxes her....and let her talk alot of times talking to someone helps put it back into perspective
My little sister according to WebMd keeps having anxiety/panic attacks... I entered all of her symptoms and that's what came up. She fits all of the symptoms of an axiety/panic attack. She's always had some anxiety issues (they run in our family) but never as bad as she's feeling them right now. Does anyone have any advice as to how I can help her feel better? I think she's been stressed out lately because she's getting ready to start cosmetology school. What do you all do when you're having an attack? Please help if you can she's freaking out a little bit.
