As if having ocd wasn’t bad enough, I also get panic attacks.

I know so many people have experienced it but how do they handle it?

It comes on out of nowhere.  I feel it in my feet, a strange numbing feeling that creeps through my whole body causing me to shake with fear. Some people get really hot but not me, I get really cold. My heart starts to pound and my breathing seems different. 

These things that I feel are scary and I honestly think I’m going to pass out. 

The worst symptom that I get is the feeling of not knowing if I’m really here. Almost as if I’m in a dream.

This usually lasts about 30 minutes and then I slowly start feeling normal again.  Well as close to normal as I can get.

Along with OCD, panic attacks have also stopped me from enjoying life. Most times it’s kept me inside. To afraid to leave my house in case it happens again.

I don’t know how to stop being so scared, and I don’t know how to enjoy life while dealing with these illnesses. But I am willing to learn, and I am willing to try.

If you or someone you know is struggling with mental illness, please Reach Out, Speak Up, And Ask For Help. Nobody should go through it alone.
