I feel my hands shake
My heart beats faster
But I still can’t breathe
I feel like
I’m running out of air
Every part of me is sweating
My fingers feel numb
And my mind doesn’t seem to be working either
My head is spinning
And my ears are ringing
And my mouth is dry
Nothing makes sense anymore
Everything is out of control
My Monday post was about anxiety so I thought I would write a poem about what it feels to have anxiety and panic attacks. I have experienced anxiety and was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Anxiety can be difficult. And it can be more difficult because what you are experiencing is technically irrational. Explain how you feel to others is near impossible. I always feel like I sound a bit crazy when I try to explain it. However, I do find it helpful to write about my experiences with my mental health. And I hope it helps others out there who may be experiencing something similar.
