I'm 15 years old, and just joined this forum.
So my problem basically is, ever since a boy at my school died of a heart problem a year and a half ago, it triggered something in me to be constantly worried about suffering the same thing as him. And due to this I suffered from the symptoms of anxiety per se, which include shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, sweating, and some other things I fail to recall.
I know this are all symptoms of anxiety as I never suffered them before all this, and having looked them up on the internet I am sure that is what it is.
But in the last few months I have managed to forget about the heart worries, which is great..
But I still seem to suffer from the symptoms of anxiety? The main is shortness of breath as it feels like my lungs can't take much air in. I just find it strange that I don't worry anymore, yet I still suffer these symptoms.
Is this what it is? Do you continue with these physical symptoms even after you think you've cured yourself?
Any advice is much appreciated. And reading through all these threads has made me feel a bit better.
