I was diagnosed with panic disorder and with symptoms of GAD in December time. My first panic attack was in September, it happened for no reason and that caused me to live in fear of having another one.
But since then my anxiety has gotten worse and i have anxiety all day every day. I have so many symptoms. Today i confused myself for some reason, i thought to myself if i actually have panic disorder anymore because i really can’t tell if i have panic attacks. Im so anxious everyday and I can’t distinguish when i have panic attacks or not. So i keep asking myself ‘Is it panic attacks or just an anxious state?’ I don’t even know what a panic attack feels like anymore because of this constant anxiety.
I only knew that it was a panic attack in September because i had no other feelings of anxiety, it was a wave of all these anxious feelings - a panic attack. Then afterwards i was confused to what happened and realised it was a panic attack, and then they began happening more and more until now where I’m just anxious and don’t know if i have panic attacks.
