  •  Having trouble breathing.
  •  Holding your breath so no one notices you’re having trouble breathing.
  • Certain everyone can hear your heartbeat pounding against the walls of your chest and fearful it will burst through and land on the floor in front of you.
  • Wishing that the butterflies residing in your stomach would take flight and find another flower to harass.
  • Having knots in your muscles so tight it feels like you’re sitting on golf balls and you’ve been beaten with a baseball bat.
  • Worrying obsessively about whether your kid will get home safely from his first party and knowing with certainty that you’re now going to have to send him to rehab.
  • Spending half your shift in the bathroom.
  • Pacing back-and-forth, from bed to couch to kitchen and back again.
  • Multiple trips to the emergency room to ensure your chest pain and shortness of breath is not something fatal.
  • Isolating yourself to control your symptoms, because nothing else works.
