I never thought I'd find myself researching what anxiety is. What the symptoms, treatments and causes of it is. I am still a bit lost in how I got to where I am today, but I have definitely realized I need help and I need to communicate with others who are going through the same thing. My thoughts run through my mind faster than my emotions can even catch up. Once a negative thought starts it keeps going and going. It feels like 101 negative thoughts are running through my mind and there is nothing I can do to stop it. I lost complete control and the panic attack begins to happen. Last year 2017, was an extremely difficult year for me and flashbacks from certain situations that occurred continue to play back in my mind and that is what begins the outburst of negative thoughts and feelings that lasts for hours or even ALL DAY. Has anyone else felt this? I am not sure what to do who to talk to. I am just tired of feeling out of control and helpless.
