What does anxiety feel like?

Anxiety. What does it feel like?

It feels like the weight of the world is on my shoulders.

It feels like I’m suffocating even as I feel the air passing through my wind pipe and filling my lungs.

It feels like nothing will ever get better but it could surely get worse.

It feels like I’m screaming internally but nobody can hear me.

It feels like that moment when you miss a step on the stairs and your heart skips a beat.

It feels like every single thing needs to be resolved RIGHT NOW or my whole life will fall apart.

It feels like worry but it is magnified ten, one hundred, one thousand times over.

It feels like losing control.

It feels like nobody could possibly understand what I’m going through.

It feels overwhelming and isolating.

It feels like I’m going crazy.

It feels like the worst case scenario is always reality unless proven otherwise.

It feels like even the smallest failure or mistake will destroy all hope for the future.

It feels like hopelessness.

It feels like stress.

It feels like self-blame.

It feels like anxiety.
