I just curled up in the corner of my room and started rocking back and forth. Scariest shit ever. I literally thought, "So this is what it's like to go insane."

I had one the morning I was leaving for a three week long trip to Europe when I was fifteen. My mom was picking something up last minute, so I was just rocking on the bathroom floor, waiting for her to come home. Europe was a blast, but the panic attack was super scary.

I'm diagnosed with a severe anxiety disorder, so I have them fairly often. Scariest thing of my life, and I constantly have to deal with them. Sometimes I hyperventhilate to the point where I almost pass out. Plus, I'm going to another state to visit some family friends all by myself, so I'm scared I might have one there when I'm on the plane or at their house. It's terrifying.

My brother fell through a window (nothing horrible, though) and needed surgery. When we got to the hospital, the nurse asked my parents if they wanted me sedated.

They're scary every time, even when you have an anxiety disorder (and so almost expect them).

I've had them so bad, so often I've been convinced I was dying.

I actually got an allergic reaction to the medicine I was taking for panic attacks once... That didn't help with anything.

Never had one.

I had my first one on my friend's horse right before I was about to jump her for the first time. It's even more terrifying when you're on an animal that could easily kill you. :x

I actually have an anxiety disorder, mine is more of a constant anxiety throughout the day, or I will obsess over something silly like I left my car unlocked, or the straightner is on, which will then make me anxious and obsess over it the whole day and prevent me from functioning normally.

I also constantly think about things that people say, I'm really paranoid that my friends don't really like me etc.

It seems to get a lot worse around exams or high stress situations, which is when I get the full blown panic attacks, it's a horrible experience.

I've never had an anxiety attack but I had a panic attack once. I didn't know what was going on. After a few minutes, I was able to think clear ish. I kept telling myself to breathe normally but my body wouldn't respond.
