For the people who have anxiety/panic attacks;
Does anyone else feel like they are just being dramatic when they have a panic attack or get anxious? Like you are making the feeling up and it is actually nothing even if you know it really is something? Is anyone else told to,” stop being a drama queen,” Or,” …and don’t give me that anxiety or panic attack crap..” or anything else like that?
I have a fear that I am just being dramatic when I feel depressed or panicky. Because of this, I feel like I have to deal with my panic attacks alone. Which is why I hold in my panic attack until I am in bed where I can silently cry and deal with the panicking as quietly as I could with my door closed. I feel so alone. I just want someone to give me a hug and tell me that it’s going to be alright.
