If you feel yourself starting to panic, try putting a metronome app on your phone and using it to speak and move slowly until you calm down. I don’t always put a lot of stock in CBT, but this always works really well for me :)
Anonymous asked: Hi! So I've found that whenever I here a noise that sounds like an alarm clock I tend to get very upset and I don't know why. Like I just heard something that beeped like an alarm clock and I couldn't breathe right and my heart was beating really fast for several minutes but I have no clue why, what do you think is going on?
Uck I’m sorry :( that sounds dreadful.
Not knowing much about you or your situation, I can say that it could be a lot of things. It sounds like you might have had a panic attack, but as for the reasons the alarm clock sound in particular would cause it
-it could be that it reminds you of something unpleasant or triggering
-it could be that you recently went through something traumatic or jarring, and in your brain’s effort to record everything about the environment of the trauma and protect you from it in the future, it gave you an intense reaction to that noise
-it could be that you have anxiety related to school or work, since most people associate alarm clocks with having to wake up for something
it could be for quite a few reasons. I’d suggest trying to figure it out- if you have a therapist, use them, but if not, try to write down or vocalize or in some other way write down everything you’re feeling in the moment, even if it seems abstract. You can use that to figure out the more specific beliefs that are catalyzed by the anxiety from the alarm sound, which can help you learn why it’s making you anxious.
Is there anything else that’s been making you panicked or anxious lately? Because if there is, try to write down everything that is causing your anxiety and see if there’s any similarities.
I’ll be up for a while, so I can help you figure it out if you want :)
