Anxiety attack #1

Waking up in the morning with a tight chest and having to speak to people is dreadful. And nobody can tell that I’m having an anxiety attack which is bad.

Intensity Anxiety level today is 3/5

3 is the anxiety I get 24/7, it’s there but it doesn’t ruin my day. Tight chest and can’t breathe.

4 is my chest is tight and I can’t breathe very well. And I’m very nervous for no reason. Ruminating

5 is my chest is super right and i feel like I’m going to fall off a cliff because the nerves are so high. Having racing thoughts and I’m ruminating.

I am feeling much better these days, for sure.
However, I am not satisfied because my anxiety is pretty much ruining my chances of reaching my dreams. I’m supposed to be starting university this year and my university have told me I may not be able to start because my anxiety is too “extreme”. I am feeling a little sad about that but hopefully it can get better from now till September. I have time so I will keep positive!
But I am really struggling.

Have you spoken to your GP about this? What have they suggested?

They referred me to therapy and it didn’t do anything for me. They’ve recently put me on new medication after the last 3 not working but it’s going to kick in 4-6 weeks but I doubt it’s going to work.

I hope it does work, it sounds like things are really difficult for you.

The way my friends son says “airplane” as “airpah” has been the highlight of my day. Laughing distracts me from the intensity of the attack. So my anxiety has reduced a little bit but it can go up at any time. I also wake up very late and try to avoid socialising with my friends but today I managed to wake up early and hang out with my friends. My therapist told me the anxiety attacks are the body doing a fight or flight response. It helped me understand why it happens but too bad the actual therapy itself didn’t do anything.

Thank you, hopefully they will💓 If they don’t then I’ll keep bugging my gp until I get it right. But the medications take a month to kick in and if this one doesn’t work, I may be given another one that also takes long to work which means I may not be able to go university. That really sucks but fingers crossed 🤞💓

All my friends are suggesting I go uni next year but how do I know my anxiety will be gone then?
I don’t really know what to do... but everything will work out eventually. I’m getting too old and I’m afraid.

Will say that if you do go to university and your anxiety impacts your ability to study it's worth applying for DSA. I got it for my own mental health issues, and without it I wouldn't have graduated.

How does that help?

Depends on how you're impacted, but one of the main things I got for my mental health was a specialist mental health mentor who helped me manage my mental health issues in relation to studying. My case isn't just mental health related though, I also have physical disabilities which entitled me to help from DSA. But if you only have mental health issues they'd still help you providing you can give evidence.

For example, if your anxiety causes you to have concentration issues, they may be able to give you a dictaphone and software so you can record lectures so you don't have to worry if you miss things in the lecture due to the anxiety causing you to be distracted, because you can go over it in your own time. This is just one example of how they can help you, they have a lot of other things they can suggest as well. It's well worth looking in to if you are impacted in studying by your MH problems.

Could they extend deadlines because anxiety causes me to lose distraction and can therefore procrastinate. But I get it done

Yes, that is one of the things they can suggest to your department.

Hey,
You can PM me whenever you like. It might be good to get things off your chest, and if you tell your uni about anxiety I'm sure they could help :yep:

Anxiety makes the simplest tasks very difficult. Something that may affect one person, affects me much more.

Putting a smile on everyday so people don’t think I’m a miserable person but in actuality, I’m having an anxiety attack.
