Yesterday was horrible for my anxiety. I had what I classify as 3 small anxiety attacks. I can’t breath well, there is a lump in my throat, I can’t focus or calm down, and I cry for no reason. It’s getting to be so awful and I really don’t know what to do. I’ve tried talking to a counselor in the past but she didn’t help. I’m hoping to see a therapist soon but I get so scared.
I don’t know how to solve these problems in the moment and it’s what I really need. I don’t like talking about my feelings or problems and I feel like I burden or annoy people when I do it so it makes it even harder.
If there’s any tips on calming anxiety attacks please let me know. I’ve tried breathing exercises but it’s getting to a point where it’s too difficult to stop and I’m so scared of it happening in class.
I’m usually okay with calming myself down throughout the day but I’m so nervous that since it’s been worse recently that I won’t be able to control it at all. Thank you.
