WHAT AN ANXIETY ATTACK FEELS LIKE:
It’s like thinking something irrational, knowing it’s irrational, but not being able to stop the thoughts.
It’s when your whole body feels on edge, like you’re panic stricken. That at any moment you might combust, a ticking time bomb.
It’s when your mind races, like you can hear all your thoughts at once but can’t focus on the present moment.
It’s when your heart races, you’re losing breath, worried that you might pass out.
It feels uncontrollable, even when you try to control it.
It’s like an out of body experience – you’re rationalising, talking yourself out of the panic, yet your body and mind is ignoring you.
It’s like being in a body that’s not yours.
