I'm 20 years old and my anxiety just recently hit me out of no where!
I had a panic attack while I was out to dinner, I wasn't really all that nervous, but my body completely freaked out on me and I felt like I was dying. It was so bad I had to sit in my car and wait on everyone to finish without me. Now i'm afraid to have another attack. I'm thinking about it so much that every time I go out i end up having one. I went to the atm and got so nervous I thought I was going to pass out. Every time I go up to purchase something at the store I feel the same way.
It's gotten to the point where I don't even want to leave my house anymore.
I recently started a new job working from home, and I was thinking that might be a trigger adjusting to not being out of the house as much but that doesn't explain a full blown attack like i'm having.
I can't go to the doctor just yet, and I don't really want to be dependent on meds for the rest of my life. I don't know what to do! I can't stop worrying about having an attack every time I leave the house!!!
