When I first had an anxiety attack, I honestly had no idea what was going on. I had never once in my lifetime even considered I was an anxious person or anything like that. So when I had an anxiety attack at work I honestly thought I was going insane out of the blue, because nothing had caused it. All of a sudden I just started panicking, I was short on breath, light headed, etc etc. It was BY FAR the most stressful point in my life. I mean, what could be more stressful than thinking your going insane?? Now, I haven't had an attack in a long time but the idea of being anxious is always in the back of my mind. ALWAYS. This has to be some sort of post traumatic stress disorder. I just dont understand why I cant drop it and move on. Is this normal? Is there any medication I could possibly get to help me?
