The Unedited Truth On What Anxiety Attacks Are Like

Fabrizio Verrecchia

Itโ€™s not like what you see in the movies.
All cute and dainty like.
Itโ€™s not just butterflies in your stomach.
A slight difficulty trying to catch your breath.

Youโ€™ll feel your heart racing. Your pulse so high.
Youโ€™re convinced you might be dying from a heart attack.

Youโ€™ll find yourself physically unable to breathe.
You keep opening your mouth.

But your lungs seem to lack the ability to grasp any air.

The butterflies are more like a snake.
Eating away at your insides.
You know you have to eat to give you the strength.
But, you just canโ€™t seem to.
Every bite makes you uneasy.
I think itโ€™s because you fear feeding the snake.
And making this already powerful creature any stronger. TC mark
