Anxiety can feel like hell. Constantly feeling panicky or nervous, overwhelmed and stressed. It can look like overthinking, overanalyzing, and always thinking about how things could go wrong.
You may think of the worst-case scenario, feel like things are out of control, and maybe you notice tightness in your chest or like you haven’t been breathing.
