[B]Hi there, I am a 19 year old student and I have an anxiety disorder. I have had this for over a year now but it comes and goes. The first time I had a panic attack was when I was asleep, I awoke violently shaking and could not regain control until maybe a few weeks later. I constantly get palpitations, fluttering sensations and I keep checking my pulse. I fear death even though I know everyone will die eventually. I keep thinking my heart will stop beating and these thoughts of me dying are causing me to have sleepless nights. I awoke this morning gasping for breath, thinking I was having a heart attack but I calmed down half an hour later (although my chest does still hurt) Logic seems to go out the window, and I feel that I will destroy myself eventually if I dont break away from myself, from my fears. Im such a coward.
Another thing that I imagine is me chocking when I eat, I just imagine these scenarios and cant help but become tense whenever I approach food. I cant even enjoy eating anymore because Im so worried about chocking. I know I have a problem, its just I hate talking to people who will pity me or sit there quietly waiting for me to tell them everything. Im not good with expressing my emotions, and I hate asking for help....but I need it. I have to deal with this because it is consuming my spirit.
Can anyone advise me on what to do? I think I know but I need to hear what others have to say.
Thanks. [/B]
