[Sticky] Generalised Anxiety Disorder
I started to have panic attacks when I was 22 years old. One night, just sitting watching TV and I couldn't breath. I wasn't (not consciously anyway) thinking about anything in particular, I was just laying on the couch.
I was convinced I was dying of a heart attack! These 'mini heart attacks' lasted weeks. Maybe 2/3 a day. I kept going back to my GP, who were telling me I was having panic attacks. Naturally, I was in denial.
Eventually I was diagnosed as having Generalised Anxiety Disorder. I worry and get anxious for just about everything. I now know that this is but a symptom of my EUPD, but it doesn't make it any easier. Especially when I'm having a particularly bad time with calming my thoughts and keeping the Panic Attacks at bay.
Please write about your experiences, or just ask questions! I'll help in any way that I can, and perhaps what you share can help others.
