Hello :-)

You will feel faint due to not eating anything

Get something to eat , sit in a cool area , take some deep breaths and eat and then start again

This is not your last day , it is your anxiety but you need some food :-)

Take Care x

You won’t be like this forever, the sooner you get your family onboard (if they aren’t) and work towards getting you into therapy. It may take medication but also a combo of non medicated therapy. You need coping skills and management strategies to help you with anxiety attack so you get through these times. You have to understand that you were really bad just being at home and things can spiral more being away from home and your comfort zone.

Since you have asthma, talk to your doctor regarding mask wearing, how handle attacks even coupled with severe anxiety. Your doctor will probably encourage physical exercise at home and avoiding going places that require a mask; I’m not sure if you use an inhaler or if you’ve been given breathing rehabilitation techniques, but I think you should discuss all of this with your pulmonary doctor. 🌺💜

Okay thankyou I will

That was my worst problem. It’s you being anxious that’s making you feel faint and making your legs feel wobbly. Just go out more so you can get used to open areas and won’t be nervous anymore. I’ve got over that problem but I still have it sometimes.
