Hey Guys! Hope your all doing good!
This blog is a bit on the down side :( (sorry) but hopefully I can reach out to the people that feel the same as I do.
Cutting to the chase, lately I've had quite bad anxiety and been having a lot of panic attacks. Sometimes there's a reason for getting a panic attack, for example I would be on a packed train and feel like something bad is going to happen to me because there are so many people on this train that I don't know. But thinking about it now (when I don't feel panicy) I know nothing AT ALL is going to happen to me! The millions of different people that go on all different trains all around the world and nothing at all happens to them! I suppose I just think of the bad stuff all the time because when you watch the news or pick up a newspaper the headlines are always a bad story. My Nan always used to say 'I don't watch the news because its always bad news' But that's because they don't give enough credit to the people that save lives and the people with good hearts, which there are millions of people out there.
I could also get panic attacks over the fact if I took a full breath but feel like it wasnt full enough, I would feel like there's something wrong with my lungs or something? It is a horrible feeling and situation to be in but honestly nothing at all is wrong! Your body and your breathing is perfectly fine, it's all in your head. Anxiety can't kill you, neither can a panic attack.
I sometimes feel like I'm stupid telling people that I can't go places because I'm too scared to go without someone really close to me like my mum but the truth is I'm not normal but neither is anybody else in the world. Everyone has their downs and their ups and that just makes them who they are.
I hope this helped anyone in the same situation that I'm in.
Let me know if you suffer with anxiety and how you deal with it.
