I feel like I lost control of my life. I can't even leave my house without having a panic attack. i can't be in a store because I'll suddenly feel bad. My anxiety controls me every minute, I don't even have a social life anymore. I'm letting this illness control me and I don't know how to make it stop

      I can relate it sucks but it isn’t forever! You have to face your panic attack and let yourself know it’s a way your body trying to protect you! It’s a way of your body perceiving danger that’s not even there. You’re going to have to focus on healing your inner self to tackle this

      You're not alone. Only advice I can give is to take small steps. Expose yourself slowly and nicely. I had a bad ex and my home town became a scary place. I avoided going out in fear of him. I slowly worked my way out. For awhile just riding in the passenger seat or even in the back. Then going in. Eventually I went to a common hang out place of his. Completely alone. Took me months but I did it. And you can do. Be gentle with yourself. You are more in control than you think. 💛

      I get it. It really does suck and I’m sorry your going through this. I would say fight it but I know that’s impossible. If you ever need to talk I’m here!

      It sucks. Me too. Please don't blame yourself. It sounds like you're putting guilt on yourself but we have to stop that. I do the same thing though, but it's just a horrible, horrible thing. Just your body reacting. Here if you need cause I can express myself well in one message. X

      I don't know what to say other than me too. It's really a cruel thing.
