    I feel like I can't breathe.

    I got triggered this morning, within the first hour of working. This jerk was just not listening to what I was saying and kept yelling at me. Finally, we got the issue resolved but the day just kept going down hill. On top of that, everyone in the office is soooo incredibly loud...

    There's so much to do,

    yes. And I'm not in my best mood to do any of them tonight! Just thinking about the consequences of my procrastination stresses me out already. I'm already restless inside, but very much lazy on the outside. And when I'm on this condition, there's only one thing I have in mind...

    This is the third one in three days.

    All about the same thing. I don't think about the problem all the time but either two things happen when I do. I have a panic attack or I get really pissed off. I can handle my self when I get pissed off. But these panic attacks send me into a spiral a depression.

    Freaking Out For A Reason Most Wont Understand.

    Sometimes my chest hurts

    so bad and I can't breathe. I can't stop thinking about everything. I've lost two babies. Why can't I just be normal? :(

    I can't breathe. I'm at school.

    Keep remembering losing my baby on this day, three months ago. I remember everything the doctor told me. How they had to give me Benadryl to calm me. I remember the ride home. And I remember crying myself to sleep that night. I can't do this

    But my body doesn't know what to do.

    It's like it's trapped in itself and wants to burst at the seams but thats physically impossible. Like I'm under assault but can't swing back.
