Do you have any medication that can help? Risperdal usually stops this spiral for me, although there are times when my distress overwhelms its effectiveness.

Anxiety also often responds to physical things. Concentrating on your breathing, meditation, exercise. I've heard yoga is especially helpful.

There were times when it got bad enough for me that I'd just get out of the house and walk around the neighborhood until the worst had passed.

If you don't feel safe, perhaps your local emergency room is the best choice. Or in my area there are several after hours clinics. Are there any in your area? While they might be leery of medications like benzos, they might be willing to give you something to reduce anxiety until your regular doctor is available tomorrow.

Anxiety often produces suicidal thoughts in me, so I focus on managing that as much as possible. The rest is usually manageable.

(Do you have any idea why the anxiety is surfacing right now? Can you identify the triggers?)
