I’ve felt like that before. Anxiety is different for everyone, and seeing a counselor/doctor/therapist is probably the best thing to do. Don’t feel weird or like it’s your fault, because it’s not! Stay strong.

Hi! It’s perfectly normal to shake after a panic attack. I would reccomend deep breathing, grounding, etc. Stay strong!
Hi! Try deep breathing excersizes, etc. Also, just focus on baby steps and don’t be too hard on yourself!

this is amazing.
Hi! I’m so excited about you wanting to be a therapist! I’ve had the same issue. I feel like I sometimes can’t help myself but i’m trying to help other people. I would reccomend giving yourself the advice you would give someone else. Also, don’t be so hard on yourself! The fact that you acknowledge your anxiety and want to help others with theirs is so awesome. I know anxiety can be tough, but keep seeing a therapist/counselor/doctor. Stay strong!
Hi! If you haven’t already, tell your boyfriend about your anxiety. I know it’s hard, but if he doesn’t respond to it well he doesn’t deserve you. Also, if you feel your anxiety isn’t being helped or is getting worse, try seeing another therapist or doctor.
