Anxiety attacks.... why does your body do this? #Anxiety #why #Stigma
I am sure those who have experienced anxiety will agree that anxiety can come in all different forms of shapes and sizes.
Anxiety is not stagnant. It continues to move, it continues it's path of destruction whether that be rocking back and forth, palms sweating, screaming, shaking, crying, hyperventilating, some form of a physical change in your body or a form of emotional change in your body.
But whatever it is for you.....
IT IS THE WORST THING IN THAT VERY MOMENT AND YOU WOULD DO ANYTHING TO STOP IT!
Anxiety is one of the most complex disorders (in my opinion) to experience, and to describe to someone else. Not just how it feels, but why it happens. Sometimes it happens for no reason at all. There does not have to be a trigger. Circumstances in your life don't always cause anxiety. Sometimes it just happens, and in those moments.... you hope you aren't in public because most will think you are crazy or think "what the heck are they doing?".
Maybe some of you have it mastered and you have an escape route?
**I know I don't! I just sit right where I'm at, don't care where that is, and cover my head, and cry and move back and forth.....**
Maybe on one of those dreadful days, someone would see me, help me through an attack and tell me it will be OK.
The day that I see that happen, is the day I will believe we finally have a chance to change the stigma on mental health!!
