Today I had a bad anxiety attack at work. I was shaking and sweating, my chest felt like someone was sitting on it and I was crying, I was clenching my fists so hard my knuckles were white and I couldn't move from the spot I was rooted too after it started when I was in a quiet spot. I left work early and came home. I curled up in a little ball on my bed. I wanted nothing more than to have someone crawl into bed with me a hold me. But I am a single working mom of 2 with very little support. I had no one I could call that would come. My anxiety attacks are something where I know I am dreaming out and I know I need to calm down, but no matter how hard I try I can't. I fell asleep for a bit under a heavy blanket I was using to mimic the feeling of someone there, but when I woke later I was still not better.

It's hard to handle it alone I have found my self stroking my hair pretending that some one else is doing it. I hope you come out on top soon *hugs*
