Panic Attacks

When I am out in public I literally start shaking I have feelings of thinking I'm not good enough or that people are judging me. A lot of this stems from the emotional and mental abuse I receive at the hands of my 19 year old son who has Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I have a lot of health issues stress related. I just don't know what to do anymore.

I'm sorry about your son, I'm sure that's tough. I have the same feelings when I'm out in public. You have to try and think yourself out of those thoughts. You need to tell yourself that its ok and those thoughts are only thoughts. If someone is judging you, tell yourself it doesn't matter, because in all honesty, it doesn't. No one in this world is perfect, everyone has insecuritys and negative thoughts about themselves. You are not alone, its very important you know this 💜 If your out in public, remind yourself that YOU are in charge of your thoughts, put positive thoughts in your mind. Reverse it. Negative to positive. You are good enough! ☺
