These are typical responses people with mental health struggles hear and have to deal with continually. We need to be mindful of the people we share our struggles with. Not everyone has the knowledge and capacity to help us thru our struggles. Speak out but Be selective.

The fear and terror that a person experiences during a panic attack are not in proportion to the actual situation and may be unrelated to what is happening around them.

Panic attacks involve sudden feelings of terror that strike without warning. These episodes can occur at any time, even during sleep. People experiencing a panic attack may believe they are having a heart attack or they are dying or going crazy. 👇🏾👇🏾

Individuals with GAD find it difficult to control their worry. They may worry more than seems warranted about actual events or may expect the worst even when there is no apparent reason for concern.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is characterised by persistent and excessive worry about several different things. People with GAD may anticipate disaster and may be overly concerned about money, health, family, work, or other issues. 👇🏾👇🏾
