The End Of The Trifecta: How The Worst Panic Attack Of My Life Ended

Monday, March 25th, 2013

The End Of The Trifecta: How The Worst Panic Attack Of My Life Ended(If you missed the first three parts of this story, click here, then here , and then here.)

The scene: a small road off of a two-lane state highway in the woods. The cell phone coverage: first none, then a single bar. My panic state: full blown.

I was laying down in my car, following the EMT-in-training’s instructions to avoid sitting up or moving around, and I was scared nearly to death. I shook, I gasped for air, and I palpitated.

I hated every single second that slowly and dreadfully crawled by. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t even conjure up the energy or the clarity of mind to reach for my Ten Rules for Coping With Panic worksheet that lives in my wallet. I was in the middle of nowhere, I was stuck, and I couldn’t escape without help. Not only was I about to receive medical help, but I’d had to call my husband and ask him to drive 40 miles to be with me.

Ugh. Failure.

The word kept repeating in my head: failure failure failure.

There’s the obvious stuff, like unexpected rain. Then there’s the klutzy stuff, like tripping and falling face first while walking down the aisle. And then there’s the panic-related stuff.


The Sound of Rain: Soothing, or Anxiety Trigger? (Part 2)

Friday, May 11th, 2012

There wasn’t a single place I could go during a rainstorm and feel safe. There wasn’t a single place in that damn office where I could allow my panicky feelings to de-escalate.
