My heart beats faster. For some reason, my heart aches as though I just lost a best friend. I feel like I could burst into tears any moment now even though I have absolutely no reason to.

It takes conscious effort to maintain my breathing in its rhythm – as though I would forget to take a breath if I did not concentrate on it. It just feels… off.

It feels like someone is peering over my shoulder – constant paranoia. Very uncomfortable. Makes the skin at the back of my neck crawl.

I get the nagging feeling something really, really, really bad is about to happen soon.

There are days I wish I were not me. Today is one. Nothing to do but plug on and hope it goes away soon.

Anyone else here ever suffer from anxiety or similar disorders?
