21. Yeah. Ive had heart palpitations since my early 20s.

They can be kinda scary but you get used to them. The panic attack thing? It’s both mental and physical. For me everything is extreme. The first time it happened I pulled over and almost called 911. After it subsided I burst into tears. The fucked up thing is that I’m a very “mind over matter” person but for the life of me I can NOT stop it once it starts. I try to think (and sometimes say out loud) “You’re fine. You’re fine”. But my brain thinks “I’m gonna die”. It’s pure unprompted fight or flight. And it comes out of nowhere.

The muscle convulsions are the worst part of it for me because I feel like I have no control over what’s happening with my body even though I feel like I should. I’m actually physically sore when it’s over.

Imagine being as terrified as you could ever imagine being for no reason whatsoever.
