When I got my first panic attack, I wasn’t sure what exactly it was. I just thought, as I was shy to a crippling degree, that I was shaken after being chewed out by my boss during my internship.
I related it to the short of breath, panic rising through my body and cold sweats of my younger years of public speaking in secondary school. But it spiralled from the initial symptoms of fear, causing me to hyperventilate, unable to calm myself and alarms going off in my head like everything was ending.
I continued ignoring it and as time went on, it felt as if I was having a panic attack for days on end. A straining in my chest, being on constant edge and what felt like never being able to breathe in enough air. It made me over-analyse everything and everyone, all in regards to my self worth. When I went to University, into a course that was difficult to get into, I thought it would give me that validation I subconsciously craved, that I was good enough, that it would make me more confident.
But it only got worse.
