So tonight at work, I faced my fears....i had a panic attack, and I said to myself "it is not going to kill you, you are not going crazy, you are ok"...It was rough, but then I felt okay...maybe even great....However, the second mind shit came on, later, and that is the worst feeling ever....I honestly don't know how else to describe it. I felt again like I was here, and there was a second chance for SOMETHING....but, the mind is silly, and there isnt' much hope to go beyond what is happening currently...the pain, the fear, all of that. The second mind is the worse...its' like i am hanging out, thinking, and there is a level above my normal thoughts, one which can attack me, that wants to take over my own mind. it is the mind which can convince me that I am insane, that tries to make me insane, that tries to let me know that emotions are wrong. This is drunk rambling...but I am scared...if this makes sense at all, let me know. I need some love. :)

Another explanation of the "second mind"....It is the most horrible feeling ever, the borderline insanity..i don't know...all too often i feel like there is my mind, and then a mind that is ruling he mind I currently have..Then there is the feelling me that my mind is not what is. Sorry...hope all is well with everyone. Peace.

Your "second mind" sounds like a segment of my panic attack.
Scary as shyt.

A teeny-weeny .5 mg. of Ativan nips it in the bud. Sounds like you need something like that. Do you have a doctor? I may take one every other day, as needed. There's no need to worry about addiction at that dosage and maybe 1 pill will be all you need. It's all I need. After several hours, it makes one a little bit sleepy, so don't do brain surgery. :)

Sojourner....I agree with the Ativan(lorazepam) approach. My doctor prescribed 15 of them back in april of 2003. I still have four pills left. They work great for racing thoughts or if you feel an impending anxiety attack or feeling of doom. The nice thing about Ativan as apposed to Valium is that it leaves your system rather quickly.
