panic attacks, animated

As I've written about before, I have an anxiety disorder. People generally do not understand it at all, especially very social people. It's a frustrating thing and I hate it and I wish it would just go away, but it won't, even with medicine. Last night I was perusing the interwebs and came across this video, which describes panic attacks better than I ever have, so I thought I'd share it. It's only two minutes long, so watch.

 

Sara Benincasa made the video and has written the new book, Agorafabulous! about panic attacks. It comes out in February and I can't wait to read it. I love that she's taken what can be terrifying and turned it into something funny and informative. And no, we can't "just snap out of it," but maybe we can be more understood and not thought of as crazy people TLC would make a reality show about.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go to the grocery store to buy food for a party I'm having tomorrow night (arrgh).
