Anxiety.. (Completely unrelated to hedgehogs)

I guess I've just been having a lot of trouble with this lately and I thought I'd rant to some people who I like.. :D
I'm eighteen and I've been diagnosed with panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder for about four years. Lately I've been sooo miserable, feeling sick all the time, and unable to sleep because of panic attacks and anxiety. I want to scream! Every time I have an exam in college it's like I become physically ill because I have so much anxiety/panic over it. I had three exams this week and right now I feel absolutely horrendous.

To bring it back to hedgehogs, snuggling with baby Rocko does appear to alleviate these symptoms. :lol:

Thank you for listening to my rant even though it's the most off topic thing ever. :roll:

Awww, I know how you feel. *hugs* Though I'm more suffering from depression, but I also have anxiety meds. And college sucks for stuff like that. When I leave my exams, my entire body is shaking and trembling.

Having pets really does help. And cuddling with my boy always makes me feel better. Spending time with my animals has helped me greatly, (and honestly...) especially my horse. It's nice to just get away from the same environment, breathe in some fresh air, and all my worries just go poof when I'm at the barn.
