  • Anxiety Attack

    Yellow streak, chicken heart

    Second thoughts better than firsts

    Trapped in sweat-stained sheets

    Uneasiness of mind came to me

    In my later years

    A state of apprehension

    And psychic tension

    Mental disorder

    Of another dimension

    Foreboding circumstance

    A maze of oppression

    Misgiving and fear of misfortune

    Ms. Shallow Breath




    Heebie-Jeebie fidget jitter

    Trepidation got me bitter

    Shakes and shivers

    The next step, my mishap




    Ants in the pants

    Nail-biting dance

    Goose bump jumps

    Butterflies in the belfry rant




    Cold feet and pins and needles

    Disquietude and cold sweat

    Dread, fright, horror

    It’s the strain and the stress




    The ball and chain of unhappiness




    Heebie-Jeebie fidget jitter

    Trepidation got me bitter

    Shakes and shivers

    The next step, my mishap

    Very relatable in my life these days. Never before had a panic attack, but went through some moments last week about all that's ahead that left me with new and powerful emotions. Amazing what havoc they can wreak on physical condition. Your descriptors are spot on.

    Unlearn what life has taught,
    bristled, ready, no fool
    to wait each day's onslaught.
    Breathe in, count a five slow.
    The brown paper sack,
    breathe out, has your back.
    In the moment - be cool.

      Yes it is, RLW. I’d taken this as my motto: acceptance. But the Universe kicked my ass last week. Hahahaha. Very funny.

    Loved this part "Ms. Shallow Breath"
    It gets frustrating. So much that it turns into poetry, when we can harness how we feel. This has no solutions. It describes the mental state, the language mirrors the uneasiness.

    I know that in this state we are starved for something. Warm doesn't feel good. We want to be comfortable again, breathing right.

    This feels so unstuck and so ungrounded. I wish there was something to do about such states. I've been in a flare for a few days and so, sick--nauseous--low energy.

    But the sun will come back out I am sure of it. Been rainy for too long.

      Nice work dude. Not everyone will understand what you wanted to say throug these words. Don’t insist on her, if she doesn’t want, take it slow. I was just like her, refused to go to the psychologist no pills. Then my husband started to take me slow, he went with me to the psychologist. Every morning we were doing exercises, started to go to a gym. He was buying for me the best Anti-Depressant - Etizolam, because when I tried to be more open and changed my lifestyle I couldn’t sleep, because of all people I was seeing every day, that is the way it worked for me. It took me about a year to fill a bit better. You need to think that everything is going to be good and it is gonna be so. Good luck, wish you the best.
