Writing here gives me an outlet

I don’t necessarily need a response, but it’s nice to know when I’m having a panic attack that I can reach out to complete strangers who understand. I’m back to thinking I’m allergic to absolutely nothing, which is stressing me out. I’ll move my tongue a certain way and think, is my tongue swollen? Does that mean I’m allergic? Etc.... then I pop a Benadryl because it calms my nerves to make sure I won’t die from a non-existent allergy. Ugh I seriously feel like a crazy person. I know I’m not, but my brain can’t be told otherwise. It’s so annoying.

Not mean at all. I actually do have a weird sense of humor lol. It helps me talk myself out of panic attacks quite often.

I have them all the time. Yes I’ve read up on them, but I think I need to go back to therapy to get rid of my fears. Maybe hypnosis or something. 🤷🏼‍♀️
