OK, so...according to slantedcursive, ya'll are panic attack experts. So help me out here, Dr. TQC!|
Are there different levels of panic attacks? I was reading on webmd for symptoms and it said it felt like I was having a heart attack. I didn't feel like I was having a heart attack, but my heart was racing, my stomach was hurting, and I couldn't think straight, not even a little bit. I essentially just felt...scared. I also was having, like, a hot flash or something. I was also crying, but I wasn't sobbing hysterically or anything. It only lasted about ten minutes, if that. Now I just kind of feel a little anxious and I have a headache. Was that, like a mild panic attack or something?
I kind of want someone to hold me right now, but my boyfriend is all stressed out with homework and I don't want to stress him out even more. Plus, he never seems like he knows what to do with me when I'm upset. He almost always insists going out and getting donuts when I'm, like, angry or depressed or something. Should I go ask him to hold me for a while, or should I try to find another outlet for these shitty feelings right now?
