Is there symbolism to these symptoms?

Postby Infonautical » Tue Mar 14, 2017 6:58 pm

A little over a year ago I began to have panic attacks at school I was 17 at the time. I had always been anxious at school because I felt sick constantly but I took some aspirin and pepto bismol and so that I could eventually become distracted by my school work. Gradually the anxiety increased until I began to panic nearly everday. People would ask me what's wrong but I hated their attention so I tried my best to poker face them and hide my anxiety. The panic would last for hours and in that time I got this horrible tingling sensation in my left arm that eventually persisted after the panic attack was over. I lost my ability to walk without assistance so I'd hobble around on crutches I became very sensitive to light and my field of vision became very grainy. My parents and I decided to take me out of school and I took classes at a nearby college instead of the high school campus and the panic mostly stopped. Today I can walk a little better but my vision is still messed up. I wonder what if any symbolism there is to my symptoms?
