Panic Disorder

How the author felt during a panic attack

By: Brittany

Tightness in my chest

I cant breath.

The only time I can escape

is when I fall asleep.


Constant nausea

constant fear.

How did this happen

knowing I’m safe here?


It’s a constant worry

another will strike.

I worry about it all the time

it makes me lose my appetite.


My sight darkens

my life flashes.

My worries control my thoughts

my heart crashes and burns to ashes.


You have no idea what its like

to live one day in my shoes.

Maybe if you did

you wouldn’t judge me as you do.
