My panic attacks are killing me. I haven’t left my house in weeks because I am so scared of it happening again. I feel afraid and useless. All the time. I can’t do anything because I am terrified that doing something will bring on another attack. And every time it happens I truly feel like I’m dying. No one really seems to get why I’m so scared. I feel like they just get annoyed with me for being difficult, for ruining plans, for being unable to work. I can’t be there for anyone and really it’s hard for anyone to be there for me. I feel trapped in this cycle of fear and worry and disappointment.
