View Full Version : I just don't understand
08-09-2011, 07:37 AM
I keep waking up with my skin super heater, my eyes can't focus and I am insanely scared that I am dying. I have gone to the ER twice because of these attacks and they never seemed worried. But I am so scared. I can't focus on who I am anymore because I am ALWAYS worried when the next attack will strike. I am not motivated to be happy or work the way I used to and people keep telling me to just get over it but I don't know how.
I am starting to hate who I am and I know that's going down the wrong road but I just don't know what to do anymore. It's taken over my whole life, I am always on edge and shaky. I have trouble focusing anymore like my brain is under a thin fog and my eyes can't see worth shit.....what do I do about this? Is is really just panic?

Hey, Dawne. So sorry that you are having such a horrible time, right now. :( It could be the panic. My eyes started acting up on me a few months ago. I got super scared like you. My friend's daughter was the one that told me that her grandfather had bad panic attacks - and his eyes would do the same thing. I honestly had no idea that could happen, but, it seems it can. It sure is frightening, though. :(
I hope you feel better. :(

I suffer with a similar phobia/panic to you, a fear of death or dying, also known as Thanatophobia.
Ive suffered with these since i was about 7/8 years old just before my dog passed away, i honestly have no idea why they came about or what triggered them off, but i am very similar to you with my skin really hot, my eyes not being able to focus and it is all down to the panic signals our brain gets from our body.
I have had no luck yet with the doctors helping me, they keep suggesting medication but i wish to go through it talking first and not straight on to medications.
If you ever do need anyone to talk to about i would be glad, as none of my friends or family really understand what it feels like to go through because they are not in our shoes.
x best wishes char
