When Anxiety Attacks

October 13, 2012

When anxiety takes control of my mind, I feel as though I have ants crawling all over me. Millions of them. My chest feels very tight. I worry about having a heart attack. I think to myself, “I’m too young to die.” In the not-that-distant past, I have said to God: “if this is my death, please make it go faster.” One time in particular, I had an anxiety attack in which I could have SWORN I was dying. I was curled up on the floor, (*I* is somewhat ambiguous here, it could have been Athena, I cannot remember but it doesn’t matter for the purpose of this post.) crying because I was having trouble breathing, my heart was racing, and I felt very dizzy, and I had a feeling that everything was going at a hundred miles per hour.

ETA: fortunately we haven’t has quite such paralysing anxiety recently but we have come pretty close.
