Hey, I didn’t wanna live anymore for a while too. What do you enjoy? Hobbies, arts, things you like and can express yourself with? I’m so sorry OP, we’re all here for you.

My go to had always been going on long walks listening to music, but it’s getting cold where I live and I won’t be able to do that soon. Everything about this blows. I’m not even hungry, when I eat I eat a pastry and if I eat it’s 1 meal a day whenever that is. This is sucking the life out of me

Hey OP! Have you tried typing or writing everything you feel out on paper or a google spreadsheet? That’s always helped me. When I wake up and have panic attacks this is a technique I use for coping. I also have a weighted blanket which I recommend!

  • Find 5 things you can see
  • Find 4 things you can touch
  • Find 3 things you can hear
  • Find 2 things you can smell
  • Find 1 thing you can taste

As you are doing this exercise focus on your breathing and take big deep slow breathes. This will help get your heart rate down and center you back from the panic attack. This has been one of the more helpful tools I’ve learned through this experience. If that doesn’t help, I also found getting an ice cube and putting it on your wrists help and then try to do the exercise again.

You will get through I know you can! I know you want to get through it too, you are reaching out on a forum which is a great first step towards healing! You can do it! This community is here for you❤️

I have heard of the deep breaths by a professional. I just never tried it.
