Seeking support for anxiety attacks

Lately, I have been feeling overwhelmed with anxiety. My heart starts to race and my chest tightens up, leaving me feeling scared and out of control. It’s hard to keep up with normal activities when these episodes come on because I find myself needing to pause and take a few moments for myself.

I’m looking for some support as I take steps to address my anxiety. The journey ahead may be long and challenging, but I am determined to find the right path for me. If anyone has experiences that could help guide me or provide insight into their own recovery process, I’d be very grateful. Thank you in advance.
