I have anxiety. I also have exams coming up. The first is on Tuesday.

Up until yesterday I was doing really quite extraordinarily well, particularly compared to what an unholy wreck I was during my June exams last year. That was the most stressed I've ever been during an exam period, and I ended up doing comparatively badly, so I've been trying really hard this time to not let myself get stressed out.

Yesterday I started freaking out a little bit, and it all just snowballed. When I get anxious, it consumes me, and I can't think straight, and I lose the ability to do things I know I can do, and it just gets worse. Now I can't go to the gym - which really helps with this - because I can't leave my room. I can't do anything except lie down, and try and block it all out. I can't work because it all just comes flooding back, and blinds me again. I don't know what to do.

I can't even get the gif I want to appear in this post.
