Hey. So I had this panic attack yesterday during an exam and I completely broke down and spent over half an hour crying in the toilet. In the end I forced myself to come out whether or not I burst into tears I'm front of all my classmates. It was so incrediably difficult. I just wanted to run away. I was wondering if anybody had any tips on how to handle anxiety attacks?

@Azzie thank you for your viewpoint it is something I will keep in the back of my mind if I ever feel like I still can't cope. @ToGoFruit thank you for your concern :) I don't know exactly what triggered it but it's always the feeling of being overwhelmed by everything, even people. I have CFS and 2 years ago I was bedridden. I missed a year of school. I used to be a part time student but this is my first year of being a full time student. I find everything overwhelming; to get back into the swing of things. I miss a lot of school regularly and as a consequence I'm behind with the work which makes me feel even more panicky. I don't have any real friends there I can trust at college. I find it hard to relate to people because they don't understand what I've been through or what I'm going through. Some of the teachers have lost sympathy for me and so have my classmates because they always think I'm bunking or cold, closed off and reservered. That day it was a lot of things my anxiety could have been triggered by. I spoke to one of my teacher's and they made me feel bad and then I started to doubt everything, every small detail. My mom and brother know about my anxiety. No one else does besides them.

@Azzie thank you for relating to my experiences. It's very difficult when people don't understand and they rather choose to judge with ignorance than listen, however I think it's courageous you're still fighting to reach your goal :) It must take so much strength and perseverance. I admire you!

@azzie I'm glad you liked them. Well I say whatever you're doing now, it's worth it. You're trying your best and that's all that matters. You have as much time as you need to get through this. You're doing exceptionally well in my eyes. I'm sure when it's time you'll know what to do :)
