What happened to cause these thoughts?
idek man :(
You're not alone, I always imagine things when I'm in public like someone will come and try to bomb everything or shoot everyone. I also got a panic attack 5 years ago in school because they required to do a simulation of a school shooting in order to get prepared if it was really gonna happen one day.
i couldn't do it, we only have lockdowns and those aren't scary. we just close the door and stand away from any windows and people are always joking during them so it keeps me calm because i know nothing is happening. its doesn't scare me as much as in other places, but there was a shooting at a mall down the street of my house that i go to at least once a week, and it scared me really badly and i was afraid to go
I can definitely sympathise I usually describe my anxiety as 'a sense of impending doom' about every event in my life. Like a panic attack.
Is there anyone at your school you can talk to about this? They may be able to help you think about things differently or learn some strategies for coping with it.
yeah, i get it so bad that i'll be planning escape routes all day long. like i'll stand closest to doors and play out different scenarios where i would get out and when i wouldn't and i make sure i'm always able to leave quickly. i told my friend but she said there was nothing to worry about
Yes, it's called severe anxiety. I have it, you have it.
i was thinking it might be anxiety but i didn't know...now that i recognize it it isn't as bad as before but i'm still scared sometimes
