Hi, everyone! I'm Joey, or Petals. Either is a perfectly fine way of addressing me. About two weeks ago, I had an anxiety attack. It wasn't my first, but this one scared me because it was different. No chest pains or shortness of breath, my right arm went numb and it suddenly started to feel like I was floating away. I went to the doctors and they've ruled out everything from a brain tumor to diabetes... But still, symptoms persist. Not the same ones like numbness and light-headedness. This leads me to believe that I have an anxiety disorder...

Lately, the really scary symptoms have come into play. So, I'm a reader. I read A LOT, so when I started finding it harder to put together sentences and comprehend what I'm reading, I started to assume my brain wasn't working like it used to anymore(I woke up being able to read decently this morning). Recently, I've been fearing that I'll have a mental break at any second. Like at any moment, I'll hear my name being called from nowhere or start seeing things(for the record, I haven't). But just the thought of going crazy is, well, driving me crazy which in turn makes me think I'm going crazy, holy cow it's an endless circle.

I'm seeing a behaviorist this Tuesday and I plan on sharing all of this with them, but I just really appreciate finding this forum to share my thoughts in. Thank you all for having me, I truly appreciate it.
