    You're not over reacting. Panic attacks are scary. I'm so sorry you had one. I have them often. It's not fun. I am sorry :hug:

    Hi Lea. I know it's hard seeing your SF friends saying that they're contemplating suicide and not being able to help them, but try not to let it get to you. You can't take on other people's problems or else it will be too much for you to handle. I feel sad too when my SF friends say that they are suicidal, because I know that there is little that I can do, but everyone has to make their own decisions. :hug:

    Knowing what triggered you is a good thing Lea. I know you will worry about them if you take a break, but you need to step back at least long enough to get yourself back under control. Posting was an excellent way for you to step back if even for a second. It gives your emotions time to be somewhere else.

    You can't help everyone, regardless of your determination. You have to let some things go.

    I don't think you are pathetic, Leiaha. You cannot help having panic attacks. You sound a very caring person but don't forget to think of you too.
