So I'm in the middle of coming down from a panic attack, seems to be taking a really long time, but it's been so long since I've had one that I forgot how horrible they are.
I've had depression for 10 years and anxiety for only 4 but I swear even though depression sucks, anxiety sucks so much more, I'm just glad that my anti d's take care of it (pity they don't do the same for the actual depression lol).
I still remember when it wasn't under control how badly it affected my life. Most of my day to day anxiety, when I wasn't having a full blown panic attack, was very gastrointestinal, meaning if I got even the slightest bit a anxious my insides liquefied, sorry tmi, but it was an aggressive cycle, I was so anxious about getting anxious and being away from a toilet more than 5 mins at a time that it made me more anxious.
They're really no point to this story other than that this panic attack took me completely by surprise and it has made me realise that with all my health issues at the moment with having seizures and what not, it's still not as unsettling as anxiety can be, even though I'm pretty sure that's what set off this panic attack
Anywho to those out there panicking or anxious, take small shallow breaths, (whoever suggested taking a deep breath is a moron, and it's a one way trip to hyperventilation ) close your eyes, relax, and much love to you all xo
