Hi, my name is Recoveringrob!
I have always struggled with anxiety and panic attacks. I’m a bit strange because outwardly I appear confident and usually feel confident but sometimes something inside me happens and I can end up having a panic attack where my heart is absolutely racing, I’m struggling to breathe and I can’t speak. It only happens when I am speaking to a group of people and not all the time. Like I say sometimes I can feel confident but I always know it’s lurking in the background. It also can happen when I am on the phone especially if I know people can hear me, but again I can also be very confident on the phone. I really don’t know why it happens and it has always held me back in my life. I though I would join this group to see if there are other people like me and if we can help each other.
