Things are getting really bad for me. All of this had been bearable for a while, and then I suddenly began having panic attacks in public. This is only unusual because I have been able to ‘hold them off’ for lack of a better term until I was alone or at least at home. Now I’m scared to go anywhere in public, for fear of another attack, and that fear usually leading to one. I can’t find anything as far as something to help, a quick solution or just a way to calm down. It’s so bad I’ve been avoiding going in public, and I have a part time job that I have prescheduled, so it’s… not good. My family members are extremely frustrated by the sudden uptick in uncontrollable attacks, and I’m even more so. I don’t know if there‘s some trigger that I need to start avoiding, or if it’s something else entirely. I just know that this is killing me, and I need just some tips as far as just keeping a lid on everything when I start having an attack in public. If anyone knows any coping mechanisms they have, I’m open to anything.
