It's that feeling of being forced to run even though you are exhausted. On top of that, small but heavy chains are being poured into your chest making it harder to run and breath. You want to give up, but you are afraid to. So you keep on running and running into oblivion.
That's scratching the surface, definitely. Your art is powerful...I want all of my friends to see this. just so they know what I feel when I'm asking for help that they can't give.
I hate when anxiety hits me in public. I look like a total idiot (and that doesn't help) when I'm sitting my desk, clawing myself, and frantically looking around, as if I'm looking for a way to escape...
I dont have anxiety, but sometimes I can be really emotional, or emotionally erratic... and then my friends just tell me to shut up or stop whining or being sad or something when all I want to do is break a window. Or something like that... I guess its hard to explain ^^'
I'm seeing a therapist for my anxiety and she's really helped provide some tools for me to help manage it when it strikes, and is helping me figure out why I feel like that sometimes. I'd really suggest that anyone going through this seeks the help of a therapist, because they really CAN help. There's no point in letting yourself suffer if there's no good reason to.
You're wrong there mate; I personally can't relate to this. if anything, you should be capable of fighting your dispair, andguish and helplessness with counter arguments. That, or you accept the truth it deals. Waiting in silence, getting drummed by your feelings, has no use - because it will come again and again and again till you've beaten it. Either way, I wish you good luck with those anxiety attacks. A lot of very talented people I know suffer from them, with for me, no apparent reason. However, facing the reason for those attacks has helped diminishing the frequency and power of those attacks.
Well, for me it was less that anything went through my mind and more that I was suddenly hit, I had trouble breathing, heartbeat pounding in my ears, and a general feeling of desperation, generally to just get away. Well, the despair anguish and helplessness is also right, it's just that worrying people was never a problem because nobody really noticed or cared about it.
.. then when it got to the point that I was hunched over a trashbin, unable to breathe, trembling, heartbeat deafening and my emotions such a confusing miasma that I just couldn't handle it.. I decided it was time to see a doctor.
It may not change the emotions that causes it, but like all psychoactive medication it fights the effects of the problem so that you can at least go about your life. Feel a bit sick and out of it the first few days, but the panic attacks now hardly ever happen, and on those rare occasions only when someone is actively trying to put on stress. Well, that's just how my family is anyway.
I don't have the time or situation to deal with this, but for now the medication is keeping the effects of the problem at bay.
Not trying to tell you what to do; that's just how it was for me. I've simply found there is a line where talking to a doctor about psychological problems and the treatment of it is appropriate.
I understand how you feel. People around you just don't understand. It's like if you keep everything bottled up inside, it eats you alive. Then, when you try to tell someone they call you a little bitch and to just deal. Anxiety is an actual disorder and effects people's lives. I think you're very brave that you put your emotions out in the open like this for everyone to see.
coming from soneoen who's suffered from anxiety attacks before, this all sounds and looks like whiny, teenaged, emo crap. the change of fonts and usage of bolding on specific words works less to intensify any feeling and just makes it all sound overly dramatic.
also, stressed out teen curled up in front of a black background with words hanging around him? Could you be a little bit more cliche'd please?
Maybe. But maybe this person is a teenager! Or maybe this person cant think of another way to describe his feelings that to use a cliche. That is more relatable, technically. Its how they feel. I do suppose you dont like the way its portrayed, but wouldn't it be nicer to put it in a better way? Or maybe consider the conditions under which the person is writing?
*shrugs* I see no reason why niceness is required. this person put it up on deviant art, they are open to criticism. I am nice when i raise, harsh and honest when i criticize. anyone who is too fragile in consitution to bear with that shouldn't be uploading anything to the internet anyways.
