Exactly. For me the issue is stomach discomfort and vomiting. I also get really short with people and agitated with almost anything. Its like I dont even want to be wherever it is I am having the anxiety attack at.
Anxiety doesn't always begin "naturally". Sometimes it is the end result of years of abuse, whether it's mental/emotional or physical. Be gentle with people that have anxiety issues, you never know what their story is.
There's a difference between being #introverted, being #shy, and being #anxious. They are NOT synonymous; however, it's been shown that these traits often overlap. Being introverted means that you feel drained after social interaction. Being shy means that you find social interaction embarrassing. Having #socialanxiety feels more like panic. What about you? Are you introverted, shy, or anxious? Or all three? (I'm an #introvert with occasional #anxiety, but not usually shy.)
OMG LITERALLY FUCKING SAME!! DO U NO HOW HARD IT IS TO HAV ANY KIND OF RELATIONSHIP WITH SOMEONE WEN U HAV SUCH HIGH LVLS OF ANXIETY? ITS HARD AND THEY NEVER WUTS GOING ON WITH U OR HOW YOU FEEL. THEY NEVER UNDERSTAND THAT THE PROBLEM IS WITH URSELF AND NOT THEM. OMFG IF U SHOWED THIS POST TO ME SOONER I COULD OF SHOWED IT TO EVERY EX FRIEND? BF IVE EVER HAD AND MAYBE THEYD FINALLY UNDERSTAND!!!
Please don't perpetuate this. This is exactly what you should NEVER do. Unless the person having the panic attack explicitly says to do this, DON'T. You can end up emotionally scarring them permanently, causing them to go catatonic which may need years of therapy to get over
