My name is Sarah, I am 21 and I'm from the UK..
For the past 2 years I have been suffering from anxiety, to the extreme.
It all started with a panic attack out of the blue which scared the life out of me and ever since I've been stuck in a cycle of daily anxiety.
The problems I struggle with are feelings of unreality, intrusive thoughts, extreme panic, to the point where I cry, pace, shake.
I was wondering if this is normal for anxiety? During my panic attacks I feel very unreal, the whole world feels unreal (even though I know it isn't) and I get really scary thoughts about hurting myself.
I'm having one of those panic attacks now and I am really scared as I am on my own. I absolutely hate being on my own I can't handle it, it seems to turn into an instant panic attack. I get worried I'll get so distessed that I will end up hurting myself or someone close to me.
I feel very out of control and like I am going mad. Even though I haven't ever lost control.
Sorry that this is all jumbled and a bit much for a introduction but I'm really struggling today and I need someone to talk to!
Thanks to anyone who reads or replies!
