DH Panic Attack.

Today we had an epic garage sale but it was really hot outside. I had to take many breaks to go to just cool down and slow down my heartbeat. My fair skin and old age don’t like the heat.
My husband didn’t take as many breaks as I did and at the end stayed outside much longer than I did. I went out to help him put away some things. When I was coming back from removing a sign, I found him on the ground. Apparently the tent pole had hit him in the head and he just kept repeating, I’m OK I’m OK and then he started just crying. Panic Attack. He has them pretty regularly but this was a bad one. I know he was overheated and he did have a few beers. It was just so hard to see him crying like that. Good news: he is now sleeping soundly.
Thanks for listening. I just needed to talk to someone about it.

I'm sorry that happened - it is upsetting. I am glad he is sleeping now and hopefully will feel better when he wakes up. Take deep breaths and time to relax yourself.

I am sure he was scared. Panic attacks can make you feel like you are dying. I am glad you arrived home when you did to help him. I am sure he was very relived to see you and have your help. I am also glad he resting now.

I am sorry about the panic attacks. They are miserable! If the effects of the alcohol from the beer were wearing off that could have triggered a panic attack. If he has them regularly I think you should encourage him to go to the doctor.

I am so glad he's OK!

Overheated and a few beers = perfect recipe for a heatstroke. Heatstroke can definitely cause a panicky feeling. If he has panic attacks often, what is he doing about it? Is he getting help? Iíd encourage him to see a doctor for that.

Glad heís doing better now!

That must have been pretty frightening for him and you! Just curious, how hard was he hit? Do you think he needs to see the doctor?

Thank you all for the replies and concern. He does take medication for panic attacks and he knows he shouldnít have been drinking. He took it easy today and seems to be okay.
