just wanted to put out there that I used to have such bad panic attacks that I would almost call the ambulance, struggled to leave my room let alone my house, and completely stopped going out anywhere (even supermarkets and university). currently I am working as a peer support person, studying a PhD and going out places on my own. it took a long time, and lots of horrible days, but it is possible to live life again, even if im not back to 100% yet 😇

      @Motley it's so odd isn't it? I'm so sorry your feeling this too. Staying positive seems to be all we can do. I have to stay out of that negative headspace. I'm not giving up, I will get some answers!

      So awesome to hear! Congrats! Ive had anxiety for as long as I can remember, but hadn't experienced true panic attacks until November. It was the scariest thing ever and I didn't know why it started..I've dealt with many health issues since then. But I have slowly worked through some things and feel like I've made progress. Before, I couldnt watch anything that wasn't upbeat/happy or it would throw me into a panic attack. I had to constantly distract myself or I would have a panic attack and be totally convinced I was dying. I was bed ridden for 2 weeks with constant panic attacks and vertigo. I feel for anyone who has to go through this, because unless you go through it you don't realize how absolutely terrifying it can be.

        @AnxiousAudrey This has been me recently. I've had this before but it's been a while. Only being able to watch happy positive things and the vertigo and being bedridden is way too relatable. I think I'm past the worst of it but it's still hard :( Trying to stay positive about it
