I reblog this everytime it’s on my dash. A lot of people think an anxiety attack is always hyperventilating and freaking out. I don’t know how it is for everybody but I can have anxiety attacks where I just feel like I’m not breathing enough even though I am and start getting sweaty, heart races and sudden urge to escape no matter what I’m doing. Most don’t think that’s an “attack” but until you’ve felt it you don’t know how claustrophobic it actually makes you feel.
its so scary
NAUSEA & VOMITING
The first few anxiety attacks I ever had I was so scared that I was actually dying. I had no idea what was going on.
I had a really bad one a while ago. I ended up hiding in my closet, my back against the wall, terrified that someone might come up behind me if I didn’t. I can’t remember what triggered it, all I know was that I was certain I was going to die. I had a friend texting me who was trying to talk me through it and every time my phone would light up saying that he had responded the panic got worse but I was so scared of being alone.
I actually thought I was dying.
I was stuck in there for 3 hours
