I’m having an anxiety attack right now and it’s different from all the others I’ve had so I have no idea of how to deal with it.
I feel scared
I feel that nervousness/excitedness before a big event
i feel scared.
But the thing is
I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I’M FEELING LIKE THIS
so i have no way to defuse it and say oh, this is stupid, because I don’t know what’s causing it.
What should I do?
Also, does anyone know what causes the tightness in the chest during anxiety/panic attacks?
Best reply by ♥Shaz♥:
I used to get those and my doctor told me NOT to fight it. I used to distract myself with a book or something but instead she said to just sit there and feel the anziety and not be afraid of it. In about 5 minutes it passes.
best advice I ever got, for real.
And as far as why…many reasons, ranging from low blood sugar to hormones, to chemical imbalance.
