While many of my anxiety attacks stem from things that are real things. Like a car almost hitting the back of my car. A bad confrontation or anything like that.
There are many things that I know are irrational. However, once you’re in an attack…sometimes you just cant shut it down.
I know that I am usually safe but my brain says…no you’re not…you need to freak out and check the door ten times. Or maybe its the fear of failing a class so while you wait for the grade to upload and your computer is freezing…you panic…did I fail? Will I be kicked out of class? If I fail, I’ll be a disappointment to my entire family.
Those 2 minutes that the computer is stalling shouldn’t call for a full blown anxiety mode….but it happens. Unfortunately.
