What prompted me to come here is my recent decision to go to see a medical professional. Which was kind of a big step for me and it opened doors to a lot of questions, also, in a way, I am a little terrified that there is a possibility that I have anxiety disorder (I have yet to be properly diagnosed but I was prescribed medication and psychotherapy).
I'm 21 years old and have been suffering panic attacks since I was 11, they were more rare before. Tho they are terrifying my main issue is my general lack of concentration, it came to a point where I am unable to lead a proper conversation without blacking out in my mind a few times, and being unable to "get to the point". Since I am a student it is even more unpleasant and it makes my life a lot harder when it comes to studying. There are various other issues I have but I don't want to make this too long. All in all I came here in hopes to educate myself a little bit and calm down a little since I'm freaking out at the thought that there may be something "wrong" with me that I don't and can't have control over.
Anyway I'm going on a browsing trip trough the forum, wish me luck!
