Ever had one of these?

Ever had one of these while driving 65 mph on a highway?

Ever had one of these while driving 65 mph on a highway on the way to a date?

 

 

It is DELIGHTFUL, let me tell you.

 

 

The hyperventilating…

 

 

The lightheadedness…

 

 

The tingling sensations in the hands…

 

 

The blurred vision…

 

 

The overwhelming sense of anxiety and dread…

 

 

Oh, yes… simply a delight.

 

 

Especially, ESPECIALLY while operating a motor vehicle at high speeds…

alone…

 

 

while trying to talk oneself down from an impeding attack…

 

 

& drive simultaneously.

 

 

It looks fairly normal on the outside,

 

 

but it feels like DEATH.

 

 

So, panic attacks.

The joys of feeling symptoms analogous to that of a heart attack…

 

 

due to anxiety…

 

 

just blows my mind.

 

 

Trying to talk YOURSELF out of having one??

 

 

PRETTY DAMN HARD.

 

 

The realization that you may have a panic attack…

 

 

can LEAD TO EVEN MORE PANIC…

 

 

and actually make the PANIC ATTACK A REALITY.

 

 

So, breathe.

Not hyperventilating…

just slow, deep breathing…

 

Because, those who think anxiety is just a LITTLE thing,

or that panic attacks are a joke,

don’t know what the hell they are talking about…
