It all started when I slept through my alarm, which meant I had ten minutes to get washed, cleaned and dressed ready to go the doctors for my appointment. I managed to arrive there in time, doctor was running late, so I jumped on my phone to check my finances. That’s when I felt it, body shaking, cold sweats, clammy, racing thoughts and a fight or flight response. It was caused by not receiving a payment I was due, a payment that is to buy food,etc, since am not fully working at the moment. This episode has left me shaken so once I got home I had some diazepam to calm me down.

How do those who suffer from severe anxiety deal with these scary symptoms, and do you suffer any other symptoms? Please share in the comments.
