When I moved to Brisbane and got in a relationship that went sour,I had really bad anxiety. I would feel panicky about my future. As soon as I broke up with her,and left Brisbane to return to my home city I felt better but I had periods of anxiety panic attacks if I was in public for too long. If i was in a shopping center for more then a breif moment my heart would race,I would feel extremely dizzy like I was going to fall over and I had to run to the door to get out. It was scary,Its like you feel like your going to die or something if you dont leave. I hate it. I hated myself for quite a while.
Then I just made myself do it,I stayed in public for longer on purpose. I got panicky but I stayed,controlled my breathing and tried to stay calm. I eventually got over it. I still feel the anxious feeling creep on me now and then but no where near as bad as I used to have it. Now I can control it and it hasnt bothered me since. I feel,free.
Its a terrible thing to go through tho and now that i have been there and worked through it I can comfort my friends that have are going through the same thing.
