Weight/Texture Related Anxiety

Postby LucyTate » Mon Apr 27, 2020 3:48 pm

Hi all! I'm Evan.

So, all my life, as long as I can remember, I've had this intense, strange kind of anxiety/panic. It would wake me up in the middle of the night in panic attacks, give me this feeling of intense sheer terror, give me nightmares, and it sounds absolutely absurd when I think about it. It's triggered by the feeling or sight of something being too light, small, or thin, or intense size differences, such as (TW if you experience this) being pulled through the eye of a needle.

(TW over)
I've never found out what it was. I've only met two people, my father and my friend, who experience this same thing. For all of us, it's given us nightmares and panic attacks, it's a terrible feeling.

Does anyone know what causes this? What could be the root of this? I bring this up now as I'm wondering if, and I could be totally wrong in this, it could be connected to trauma somehow. Or, it could be something completely different.

Please let me know if you also experience this, or have any idea where this does/could come from. Thank you <3
