Today I almost had a panic attack. I think part of that triggered it was that, I drink two cups of coffee in the morning I know I shouldn't be drinking coffee it makes my anxiety worse. I was cleaning in the morning and my thoughts were going crazy that I needed to do so many things. while I was cleaning one of my cats kept meowing and meowing so it made me more anxious and it's raining right now and the rain made me more anxious. I did yoga and meditation it helped a little bit, but then I felt like I was going to get a panic attack and was trying to calm my mind down. It's been a long while since I haven't had a panic attack I swear I felt like I was going to die. The worst part of all I'm alone. I'm okay now but I know I need to not have caffeine.

      Caffeine does cause chemical reactions in the brain. Growing up I couldn't have caffeine because it triggered my adhd and anxiety

      i know it's not what you want to hear, but you HAVE to quit caffeine. You have to. You're sensitive to it just like me. You think you need it now because it's the routine your body knows, but once you weane off caffeine and quit it completely, you realize you can have energy and be happy without it. Try using Decaf coffee. Try it for two weeks with no caffeine and see how you feel. I don't want your anxiety to come back 😥. Coffee triggers my anxiety too, so i quit and I've been so much better. Please try it too 🙏

      it sucks I've been drinking coffee for about a month now. I know it affects me but we recently got a coffee maker with the pods. So I use it on the weekends. It's been hard since we have the coffee maker. I know I need to stop drinking it because I hate this feeling.
