It sounds like you had an Anxiety Attack. I have them too. They suck. Mine end sooner if I do breathing exercises and doodle. Talking about it can help - whether to people here, a counselor, or a physician. 1. Talking to people who understand helps to make me know I'm not crazy. Here is my favorite! 2. Counseling helps. A lot of schools/colleges have free counseling, or you could get it online, or look up cheap counseling in your area. 3. Some people need antianxiety meds. I don't, so I can't give specific suggestions, but my friend takes them, and they really help her! So talk to your physician to learn more. It's scary, but if I can make it, you can make it. You have a good community here to support you.
