Okay so, my story has been stated already, but I'd love to restate it. So about a month ago, I had my first red bull, and that ruined my day completely because I also had my first panic attack. After that occurred, I've always felt fear that a bad experience like that would occur again. As a result, I've constantly worried about me and how I'd be feeling from that day on. My issues started with me focusing on my breath, then changed to many other things. Since last week, it started in me feeling anxiety over ALS, but that feeling is practically over for me now, and I'm not scared over it at all. The only issue I have now is, anxiety. The last 3 days, I've had a panic attack daily and my eating habits have been terrible due to my fear of death. Now that I got over it today, I realized how badly anxiety is affecting my health and my daily habits. Now, my worry is on anxiety and whether it will damage me. I know anxiety won't kill me, but it has annoying symptoms on me. Fatigue, sad mood, loss of appetite, loss of interest, and etc. The fear of these symptoms changing me and how I think is scary. I think this is an issue because I think about my anxiety and how its affecting me a bit too much. Right now, my school's on break and so I don't have much to do, but when I play games with friends or go out with family, I feel better. I think the month of constant fear of living constantly with the thought of my breath, with the idea that I might get ALS (one of the worst anxiety I've ever had, constant worrying about how I'd die), and etc. has taken a toll on my brain activity. By retraining my brain, I feel like I can get better again, but I'd like to know if this has happend to anyone and how they came over it, or better managed it. I'd love to hear advice and support, and I think my only cure is to stop thinking the bad thoughts and distract myself with good ones.
