I came across this today.It blew my mind away. It's a loong read but it's so worth it.
I think we have all thought that way at one time. Our feelings don't equal truth, and the more we think on the what if's the worse the anxiety becomes. Really in truely looking over symptoms that panic and anxiety cause,are the very same symptoms major diseases cause, thus why the feeling of dying always accompanies a panic attack. If you want to put your mind at ease, go get a check up,but I'm sure it's all in your head(not saying that sarcastically)
ETA-my link didn't work, just copy paste it to your browser. Hre's some tidbits tho;
"Panic attacks aren't about
'real' fear, they are about
the sensation of fear"
"Anxiety & panic attacks aren't a
bout mental illness, they are about
habit. Break that habit and the anxiety & panic attacks disappear!"
"Panic attacks might feel threatening but they are not. No one has EVER been harmed by anxiety!"
"Being anxiety & panic attacks free is already programmed into you, we just have to flick the switch"
"Panic attacks & anxiety are inappropriate reactions to normal situations. How can that be a mental illness?
Panic attacks and anxiety are about
habit and instinct!"
"Panic attacks can't harm you, they feel terrible but 'feelings' never harmed anyone!"
"Panic attacks and anxiety are less obvious when your mind is busy... there's a scientific reason for that!"
"Stop fearing fear and panic attacks will fade away!"
"Panic Attacks have never caused anyone to be harmed - NEVER!"
