the worst panic attack I've ever had, at school.
Okay so I'm 15 now and have been experiencing anxiety from the age of about 12.
The worst panic attack I have ever had happened when I was 14, at school.
That day was a theme day (which means we were off timetable and doing activities) my class had the opportunity to welcome a French and Italian school to our school as part of a project.
The hall was filled with students and teachers. This is when it started.
I suddenly felt a weird feeling in my chest, a tight feeling. I knew what was coming.
My teachers were standing at the door. I stood up as fast as I could and walked towards the door, I ran to the place that I felt safest, an office of one of my teachers. I walked in and she knew what was happening, I couldn't speak, I just tried to gesture that I wasn't okay. She told me to sit down and breathe but I couldn't, I lost the feeling of my hands, my legs started shaking, I nearly threw up, I then had to breathe into a paper bag. I couldn't get up because I was so ligtheaded.
This lasted about two hours. With the help of about 3 teachers I managed to calm down but felt so down and tired afterwards.
Worst experience of my life.
