When I have a panic attack:
- My heart starts racing. I can feel it pounding in my chest.
- Feelings of dread and terror take over my emotions.
- My body starts twitching in a desperate attempt to relieve some of the anxiety.
- My mind is screaming at me to run away from everything around me.
- My stomach starts churning and I become nauseas.
I know what is happening to me. I know it’s a panic attack, but I still feel like I am going insane. I feel like a freak for freaking out uncountably.
