Panic attacks TW
« on: May 26, 2018, 01:52:55 AM »
Panic attacks

The emotions rise within my chest
They grow in size and will not rest
The choking feeling holds me tight
Itís too late Iíve lost this fight
With each breath the tension builds
Till it has hit its emotional fill
My breath is short and head throbs
Grounding now becomes my job
My tortured nerves recall the pain
With each flash they take past blame
I feel as if I canít take more
And yet the body keeps the score
Breathe out the tension
With each past reflection
My body feels like it is breaking
My stomach and hands wonít stop shaking
The world flexes and starts to bow
At last my surroundings begin to slow
I count down breaths till it finally ends
Please donít let me get one again

You're describing it incredibly well, the sensation of a panic attack.
Thank you for sharing this, and for writing it!
Yet, I am sorry you know how it feels -it's not something I wish upon anyone.
 :hug: , if it's okay
