Because I feel like it’s important to address this again, let me tell you about my first panic attack.

My anxiety shot through the roof. My heart felt like it was going to burst out of my chest it was pounding so hard. I was dizzy, hyperventilating, and then my body was just gripped with a sense of fear. Not anxiety, pure terror. I started screaming and hid behind a chair in the corner of my room rocking back and forth, shaking, gasping for air, and whimpering. I had to be pulled out of that corner by my mom and held for about ten minutes before my breathing returned to normal. All I remember after that was feeling really sleepy. I don’t even remember when I fell asleep. I just remember waking up.

Panic attacks are not hammering on your keyboard like you’re typing in an earthquake. It’s an intense psychological and physiological response. While it manifests differently for folks, tyy pppi g   liiik    oomg th i?s is not a fucking panic attack. Stop trivializing real disorders people struggle with for internet sympathy points.
