“Daddy, I’m a faerie today! Do you like my wings? They’re nice and pink and pretty.” *giggle*
“Yes, Daddy very much likes your wings, and today you will be my sluttly little faerie. How does that sound little girl?”
*blushes shyly* That sounds good, Daddy. *grins and crouches down*
Oh, such a good little girl, and faerie you are my precious one.

There needs to be a code word or something that means “my brain is fighting me every step of the way today and I feel like I’m going to vibrate out of my skin, so I need you to forgive everything and go slowly and speak softly and lower your expectations.” And then we could all just be like, “I know I said we could go to a movie tonight but… tangerines.” And the other person would nod and squeeze your elbow or rub your head and you wouldn’t feel like a failure.
One of the most accurate depictions of a panic attack that I’ve ever seen.
Thank you. Just thank you. Far too many people don’t seem to grasp the concept of what a panic attack actually is. Getting upset is not a panic attack. This is.
this is actually really accurate, especially the feelings of not really being there. i cannot concentrate when i’m having an anxiety attack, i can only concentrate on the anxiety itself. I had an panic attack yesterday and i can’t remember anything of what anybody was actually saying to me during that time, its like being in a tunnel and everyone else is shouting at you from the other end.
The perfect illustration that displays a panic attack. I hate when students joke that they’re experiencing a panic attack when they’re only normally stressed about the situation. They don’t feel like a boulder is crushing your chest nor do they feel like they’re about to die any second.
