    Can anxiety seriously be this bad?

    So I've had anxiety for about 6 years now. It really did suck but I was still able to function normally and do things and felt pretty sane. However, I recently got my first panic attack 7 months ago and I have not been the same since. I am seriously considering if it was just a panic attack or...

    Forced Responsibilties Weighs Me Down
