My anxiety story
At the age of 13 i had my very first panic attack. It was the middle of the night and every one else was sleeping. For the past year or so i had been feeling sick, everyday. My mom brushed it off as me crying wolf. My doctor didnt know what it was, i ad blood work, appointments, ultra sounds.. I really thought i was dying. Finally she sent me to a therapist. She told me i had anxiety.
For the next 3-4 years i went to her, trying to get it under control.
when i was 17 i was having weekly panic attack and in may, a close friend died. I had depression for a while before that, but it sent me in a downward spiral.
im now 18 and i still dont have it under control.
