Re: Can a young teen have a heart attack?
the weird sensations are what you are creating by letting your thoughts expand. try this....every time you get these weird sensations...go kiss your child or your husband, or go do something physical. when i was having panic attacks...i would start pacing around the house....because i would think the same thing....you know...oh...i'm having a heart attack. the reason i paced and i mean, a fast pace...is because as long as i was moving and exerting myself....it couldn't be a heart attack or i wouldn't be able to do that. other's might try something like sitting down and doing deep breathing because they want to relax. i would challenge the anxiety by proving it wrong. you....are in control of your body, but anxiety likes to think it can control you. when you give it that control...by getting scared and letting your thoughts get unrealistic....you feed the anxiety more. if you start feeling panic coming on....just say no...no i'm not letting this control me...no, no, no. keep your mind busy. when you're intensely focused on something...you don't feel the anxiety because your thoughts are being used for something else. you're far too young to be a chronic worrier. just live avaleen....not for your anxiety, but for you and your child. just stay in the moment your in. don't anticipate that something is wrong...it's only your body poking at you and saying....hey....i'm baaaaccckkkk....lol. ignore it....it will go away and i think you know that...because it always goes away....right? live, love and especially....laugh.
