Panic attacks

Hey, so I had a panic attack today! *nervous laugh* However, the entire time, my sister was talking to me about her date with a girl. While I'd love to hear about that, I can't handle all that at once. So here's my question: How do I kindly and politely tell someone to eff off whilst in the middle of an internal collapse? I need an answer to this question more than I need oxygen.

Hi there, I'm sorry to heat you had a panic attack and your sister just carried on talking about her own stuff. Do you mind me asking if you get these often? And can I ask, did you tell your sister how you were feeling or do you think she didn't know what was going on for you at the time?

Hey, I get panic attacks like, every other day or so. But I just act like nothings wrong, so people don't tend to see what's happening. I have a hard time telling people what I'm feeling. And I especially struggle with emotional expressions. After she walked away though, I got it under control by putting on my headphones and listen to music.

I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing them so often. That sounds really tough. I get that you have a hard time telling people. It can be really difficult opening up about our emotions and feelings as it can make us feel vulnerable. Do you think that might be why you like to keep it to yourself? I'm wondering, if your sister (or another family member) was experiencing this, would you want them to talk to you about it?  Also, do you mind telling me a bit about panic attacks (if you feel comfortable to)? How do you feel when it happens and have you noticed a trigger?

Oh my effin gawd,  so I'm not the only one then 💀🙏 legit I can't underscore how relatable this is, I'm like in a tank of water and it is rising above my head and I can't breath among other symptoms...during convo and the other person like my mom for example is talking about ukuleles or her experience at the health insurance place, and I do care i swear!! But i am sorry I don't have an answer for you, lets try to figure it out together tho 🫠👍

So- I also had one today- just because of some stupid friend stuff- but it’s kinda weird because there was one point in time where I didn’t cry for years. No matter what It was. And then one time I cried in front of my mom and ever since then I cry over the smallest things- any reason why?

hmm, well firstly sorry to hear that :/ I am not sure why, maybe you are trying to let out the pent-up emotions and tears..? Crying is really good for letting out tho, I can hardly cry these days, tbh I am not even sure what crying means I guess.

Oh I see! Ye I have been working on seeing the positives more. 
the stars, universe, and planets are too beautiful to describe. Just the feeling of looking at the night sky and seeing the stars twinkling 💖

Hi there, I noticed that you are fairly new here so I just wanted to say hello 🙂. It's lovely to have you here. I'm Aurora and I am one of the support mentors here at Ditch the Label. I can see that you have already spoken to @Equivalent Ways about what's been going on for you but I just wanted to check if you wanted any additional support around the panic attacks you've been experiencing? We're here for you if you need us.

Hi there, thanks for sharing what it feels like for you. You're always really good at describing the different emotions and feelings you're experiencing and the impact it has on you. I can see that you have already talked to @_melanie_ about it. Would you like to talk about it a bit more or are you good for now?
