Today, I was having a fine day, when I started to notice some anxiety creep in. I tried to ignore it, but it started to build. Then, my eyes got a bit wonky. Next, my palms began to sweat. Soon, I felt warm in my chest, back, and upper arms. Suddenly, I felt faint. My heart was beating fast and pounding. My legs became heavy. Am I passing out? Having a heart attack? I began to panic, but was in a situation where I couldn't flee. It subsided in about 10 minutes, but I am still reeling with aftereffects. Was it a hot flash? I feel like I am losing my mind. I was getting better and felt good for a few months. Now, I feel like I am headed down the roller coaster. I am so tired of being anxious and scared. I just want to cry. Why do all the other middle-aged women around me seem fine?
