Anxiety affects many people of all ages. It’s something that you feel, and it can overwhelm you. I wanted to give a representation of what an anxiety attack feels like to those who may not understand. To those who do understand, you are not alone.
I am breathing in fire
and exhaling needles and pins.
I look around the room and count the dots that line the tile floor,
One, two, three.
I count these out loud in hope of clarity,
My heart begins to beat to the patter of a drum,
and I can hear my blood rushing through my veins.
The room slowly starts to spin,
and I reach for the nearest thing to catch my self.
You’re ok, just relax,
You’re not dying,
It’s all in your head,
That’s the thing though,
