I had my first anxiety attack today. Thought I was having a heart attack, which I almost didn't believe at first, because I'm only 20 years old. But I figured with my weight issue, it was possible. I told my mom about the pain I was feeling, she had my dad check my pulse and talk to me about how I was feeling while my mom called 911. The paramedic told me that my vital signs looked good, and that it wasn't a heart attack. Ive never had this happen before, so it was really nerve racking to know that I had an anxiety attack. :(

    Oh no! I hope you are feeling better. I myself have never had an anxiety attack but a few years back my ex-stepmother had one and she too felt like she was having a heart attack, very scary. I'm going to be thinking of you and praying that you find some peace. Sputniks counseling and stress management might be a route you want to look into to. I'm here for you and so is this blog. Let it be your outlet. Take care.

    That is not a fun feeling. I suffered from anxiety attacks while I was in college, and it's scary. I met with a counselor and a stress management specialist and it really helped. I highly recommend finding someone you can talk to you to find out how to control your anxiety. Good luck.
