Horrible , like u can’t breathe and suffer to do regular stuff and can’t cope 

Disassociation. It’s like I’m not really me when my anxiety gets worse or I’m not really there in my surroundings. Not sure if that’s the correct word to describe it though. Great post. Interesting to read how others describe their anxiety.

Mine would be: potent.
