    i was very tired so i went to sleep almost two hours ago and i kept sort of waking up crying but not fully conscious so tired and not waking up all the way and just staying asleep and finally i wake up now. because i can't handle the crying and my face all wet and i can't stop and my nose is running and it the kind of like crying that makes you kind of take gasp breaths and i am still crying and i don't know
    why and i can feel the muscles in my face stressing too and i didn't go to sleep sad.

    i don't know what wrong but it won't stop and my body feels really weird kind of like when you get woke up from rem or something, pins/needles can barely use my muscles and can't really sit up. all my nerves firing off at once. and its scaring me.
    i am scared i don't know what is wrong but itw on't stop

    first - call your doctor, please

    second - try to get up and do something simple - try taking a shower to make sure that you're fully awake and relax you - sit in it if you can't stand - try a warm/hot shower (if you need a cold one i don't want to know)

    if you can't do that, reach for a newspaper or book and try reading - anything that can provide a distraction

    third - keep posting so we can see how you're doing

    hang in there

    hey, i started crying on the train before it left the station this morning...and on the PATH train...and in the elevator - no clear reason

    i know it sucks

    try to eat or drink something that comforts you if you can

    i woke up late for something once and panicked really badly - sat up really fast, but my arms refused to move - had to calm myself down before i could reach for my clothes

    you may not be fully awake yet - the mind can be strange that way

    you can obviously move enough to get to your keyboard

    now i want you to pick up your phone and call for help

    all we can do is talk to you and make sure that you are not alone, but it sounds like you need more than we can give you

    call and let us know what's going on

    sounds like panic attack emotions call your doctor okay your therapist let them know what is happening Have you started any new medication you need to talk to someone that can assess what is truly going on. Your GP or psych doctor can do that. I have bad panic attack can't catch my breath and fear and tears i know it is very frightening I always call my psychologist and let him know whats happening please call okay and get back to us Kali It is important now to reach out and get help

    think violet may have hit the nail on the head

    wish i had seen it myself - had my first one after an outpatient procedure

    i HATE needles, slipped a disc and then had epidural cortisone to treat it where they had to insert a foot-long flexible needle near my spine - WHILE I WAS AWAKE!!!

    now i have them everytime i get a regular shot or have to have blood taken even though i know its coming

    the first one sucked and lasted about an hour and a half but it did pass

    i know that this is going to sound stupid because it will be the most difficult thing to do right now even though it sounds so simple but this is what i do after shots now

    1. blow out all of the air in your lungs
    2. take as deep a breath as you can
    3. hold it for a slow count of 5
    4. keep your lips pursed and blow it out - don't just exhale
    5. repeat

    the point here is to make sure that you aren't going to hyperventilate and give you something that you CAN control to focus on

    if you start crying between breathes, just go with it until you can start again

    let me know if that helps

    Hey Kali,

    I don't have any good advice like some of the other stuff here, but I wanted you to know I am hoping you feel better. You're a good person, and I know you can get through this.

    thank you for being there and for still being there. hugs

    i had sleep paralysis once, many years ago. what happened to me physically today very much resembled that, although it wasn't identical to that other experience; the numbness, at first not being able to move, the electricity feeling, the fear part because i couldn't move/and from the crying, the physical sensations/experience. difficult to describe.

    my sleep has been messed up. i sleep four hours once every two days, sometimes three days. what i didn't understand was why the heck i was sobbing while i was out cold. the crying kept trying to wake me up. you know like when you have pain and you never really get fully conscious, it just keeps biting, you keep sleeping, and finally if it gets bad enough it just shoves you into being awake? sort of like that but instead it was sobbing and i think my brain woke up before my body did. i've never cried while out cold. i don't know why i was sobbing and this concerns me. all i could think of is there is like some pressure on me about the 20th, but i can't think of anything else, i just don't know.

    i just needed the human connection, some reassurance. i was unable to reassure me on my own. its not something I often need and it is difficult for me to ask for anyways. there was a computer next to where i had decided to sleep, so when i couldn't stop crying and didn't understand what was happening, i logged in as soon as my hands were working well enough. it would take a while to get to a hospital, my area does not have 911, additionally i sustained multiple life threatening iatrogenic injuries so will never see a doc or hospital again. i live almost remote rural.

    i didn't need a doctor or pills. i just needed you guys. i just needed people.


    lots and lots of hugs for everyone from me.
    thank you all. i appreciate each one of you. hugs
