My anxiety feels like…

… a thumping heart

… a tight chest

… short, quick breaths

… a knot in my stomach

… a swollen throat

… heavy eyes

… warm feet

… a tingle in my ears

… a pressure in my forehead

… a fuzzy head

… a tremble in my hands

… and jelly in my legs

I hear the blood rushing through my veins

I feel the clammy sweat on my palms

I smell the cold air

I see everything

I taste fear

How do I look? Same as always…

    Thank you Purpleowl! I was feeling so anxious last night when I wrote this. And I had no idea why… So I just wrote how I was feeling to see if it helped me 🙂
