Hi, I've just started Uni and I'm far away from home, I've got anxiety that is normally fairly well controlled and I get panic attacks with it. Today I've had 4 panic attacks and I keep crying uncontrollably when I'm alone in my room. I know I'm settling into life away from home but everything is just so overwhelming right now and I just needed to tell someone that things aren't as good today as they seem and it helps just typing it out. Your blog is so helpful to me you are amazing.
Hey, anon. I’m gad that you had a place that you could just vent. It’s pretty normal to have some trouble adjusting to new surroundings, but it sounds like your case is pretty severe. This is a link to our anxiety page, and it has some suggestions on it for coping with panic attacks. I hope that some of that will help you out.
If at all possible, try to find something familiar to you to help you adjust. Calling friends and family back home, watching an old favorite TV show, or anything that feels stable may be able to give you something to hold on to for now. I hope that your New Place Panic settles down soon
And thank you, I’m really gad that you find us helpful.
