Out of no where, it hits
Uncontrollable fits
Blasting through like a train-
Fast racing heart
Palpitations now start
Unbearable, acute chest pain-

Muscles ever tense
Vision is so dense
Breathlessness now begins-
Feeling dizzy and weak
With a feverish cheek
Sensations of needles and pins-

Sweaty and hot
Trembling non-stop
Canít stop hyperventilation-
Vision now tunnel
Looking through a funnel
Feelings of depersonalization-

An end is in sight
Put an end to this fight
As fast as it came, it went-
Over once more
I hit the floor
Mind and body totally spent-

My turbulent ride
I can not hide
No cure for me in sight-
So I just sit and wait
As if it were fate
For my next frightful flight-

Wow Sheri - what a great description of
a panic attack.  Gads, I do not like those
things.  Very well written.

Netswan, Sven, Spitfire, Michael.....
Thank you all for you comments.
I found this is one way for me to deal with.
Though, I don't get them often, it's still very scary.
Even once is enough!
Thanks again to you all!

I have been close to someone who has experienced this. I hadn't been able to understand how it felt, until now! thankyou!

A very powerful description!

Hi Irie
This is an excellent representation of anxiety over future. I've felt it many days. But I pray and meditate and it brings me a lot of solace and comfort. Life goes on.

Sincerely

Hey A_L!
Thanks for your reply.
Sounds like something I need to do for myself.
I have been in quite the "Panic" state lately.
I do believe it's fear of loss and no control.
Thanks for your kind words!

Very good way to discribe panic attacks, sorry to here that they attack you. Not good   they are a frightening time whilst happening, glad it doesn't happen often.

Sheri - This was about PANIC attacks??? *blush* I thought it was about ... about... well, you know.... Hey-y-y-y!  It WAS a good description.  It could very easily describe other moments of uncontrollable responses *self-righteous nods*  How was I to know???  Either way - it was still a good piece of writing.  I like the style, too.
