    Hi! My anxiety and panic attacks started when I was around your age and I'm now 20. I didn't think I was about to die but I did think there was something really wrong with me healthwise. Doing CBT activies and challenging your thoughts and evidence to support your thoughts I found has helped me think that I'm not really ill. I also find it really difficult to talk to people when I'm panicking (I thought that was just me!). I either feel like everything around me goes really quickly or slowly. I find it really hard to process anything and to get my words out. You're not alone! Good luck smile x

    I find myself leaving the room if I am with someone. And even going up to lay down when I feel an attack coming on. The thought of talking makes me feel uneasy, but many times I have phoned a duty worker from a mental health practice near me and found that talking for a few minutes eases the attack quite a lot.

    If you feel an attack coming on, try to get your phone out and visit a website that has a lot of reading content on it. It doesn't have to be about anxiety, but continuous reading can stimulate your mind and help relieve you of your sensations. Either that or put a comedy clip on youtube. Some little things lkke that can help. Give it a go
