Anxiety attack

Hello

I didn't really know how to approach this post, I think I've always had anxiety but only sightly, in the sense that I get very nervous about new things and over thinking situations which makes me not want to try new things because I've always feared an anxiety attack. 

Last week I had an anxiety attack and I wasn't sure whether or not to tell anyone, I didn't want to tell my family because they will probably just think I'm over reacting but it was so scary. I don't know why I had one, I think it was because everything was getting on top of me, work was hectic, and everyone around me seemed to be having there own little crisis. I was in the kitchen when it happened, I could feel myself going into like a panic mode. I just went into my room and shut the door. My chest felt so tight and it felt like I was about to burst into tears, I couldn't breath and I was panicking even more about that as well. I managed to calm myself down by just shutting everything off. Now that will sound odd but I put on my music closed my eyes and just pictured the sea. 

That probably sounds ridiculous but it managed to calm me down and gave me time to get my breath and think about what just happened really. I suppose even though I hated it happening, I'm glad it did while I was alone and it gave me time to work out how to calm myself down, at least now I'm prepared for if it happens again.

I'm sorry if this was a boring post but I wanted to talk about it because I wasn't really sure what else to do, I mean Ive felt anxious before but never had an anxiety attack where I have felt like that.

Bye for now xxx
