Hello. I have dealt with anixety since I was 17 and I am currently 28. It's been a really long and tough journey, however, I have not given up hope on overcoming my panic attacks and anxiety. I seem to be okay for the most part. I try my best to do everything that I have learned to cope with panic attacks in order to deal with them better. However, sometimes I lose myself in the fear. I had a really bad episode on Monday. I was just getting over the stomach flu and got nauseous in the morning. Nausea is a trigger for me. I then began to worry that I was going to be sick again. The room started spinning and I felt weak. My heart started racing, the hot and cold flashes came and I felt like I was about to die. It was terrible. I got through it with the help of a friend, but all this week I have felt off. I keep obsessing over thinking that I am about to go crazy or lose my mind. I have a new therapist and I don't even want to tell her I feel this way. I am afraid of being committed. I don't feel like hurting myself or anyone, but the intense fear of going crazy is hard to deal with. Sometimes I think the physical symptoms are nothing compared to the emotional symptoms. Today I have been trying my best to not feed into this fear. Whenever I feel this emotion pop up, I just keep doing whatever it is I am at the time and it seems to go away. It's hard though. If anyone has ever felt this way, please let me know how you manage it. Thanks.
