Just had an episode this last weekend. I woke up feeling alright, by mid day I was a wreck. I couldn't sit down for more than a minute, I couldn't eat, I couldn't go outside cuz the light was too intense, I puked, hoping that it would make me feel better (bad idea). This worst thing are the impure thoughts that cross my mind.

One thing that I have found to combat this is you have to find a way to control your mind. I've found this in a comfort zone. I have a roommate that finally understands what I go through. He has helped me tremendously. He forces me to get outside and get active. It's a very tough concept, but once you do it you'll feel better. You begin to start thinking about other things and that's when you realize that it's all mental. Endorphins are powerful, being active helps cure a hangover, which inturn has helped me cope with anxiety.

I always feel like I'm going to pass out and die when I have an anxiety attack, but I have peace of mind when I am around people. If I pass out they'll help me.

Take solice in the fact that doctors have told you that everything is alright with you. That's what they told me. Whenever I have an attack I think back to that and tell myself that I'm o.k.

Last thing. I've tried melatonin. It's a natural sleep agent. I was scared to use it at first, but it did help. I have no addiction to it either.

Good Luck
