“I teach & right now I only function at school. I give my all there & fall apart at home. Today I barely got everyone out & made it to my room before having a large anxiety attack. Normally I get in a safe space and they pass quickly. This time I hyperventalated for a long time and then hysterically cried. I felt like I wanted out of my skin & was tugging my hair, pants, floor. A friend came & saw. As much as I talk about it, ppl don't see me do this. I had to call my husband to drive me home.”
