I have come to realise that my anxiety is much, much worse in the summer. I'm not sure if this is because the heat brings on the anxiety or if the anxiety makes the heat feel worse. Yesterday I was in a store trying to buy a fan. In the queue I suddenly started to feel like there was no air and I couldn't breath. I also started to get burning sensations in my head and stomach. I managed to keep it together until I got home but the experience left me feeling, sick exhausted and really down. I find if I carry water with me im ok and wearing sunglasses to block out the light helps. But ideally I just want to stay in and hide but know that it isn't going to be feasible. I just want to enjoy summer.
