im 16, ive known about anxiety and panic attacks because my mother experienced them freugently when i was in middle school but i never really understood it until my freshman year when i dealt with minor depression and anxiety involving friends and particuraly a girlfriend it was nothing major, then i moved to another state and i absolutely hate it but i had no anxiety at first. then last october i tried smoking marijuana for the first time, even though where i had lived previously i had never smoked ciggaretes, weed, or drank alcohol, but many of my friends did, but i always resisted doing it because it never interested me. so i started smoking it once or twice every few days with friends, until one time after smoking i experienced a major panic attack ( but at the time i didnt know what it was), my heart racing, losing control of my body, trouble breathing, vomiting, and it was honestly the scariest experience i had ever had. i went home and went to sleep and the next day i was fine, i thought it was just a bad trip, i had smoked too much of too stong a weed, so the next week i smoked again and the panic attack happened again. but once again the next day was fine, but it had scared me so bad i decided to quit smoking it. and so i did, and one day in the middle of december i went to a friends house for a party, as i was there my friends were smoking marijuana heavily but i didnt think anything of it, because I wasnt smoking, so i thought id be okay, but the small room ended up filling with smoke, and i was idiot for not thinking that being there in the smoke was gonna get me high. and then it happened the worst panic attack i had experienced, i had my friend rush me home in his car. this time the next day i wasnt fine. after telling my mom what i did and what had happened, she explained that it was a panic attack, now knowing what it was i felt better but my anxiety has raged on constantly since then, i have gotten somewhat better now that i understand anxiety and panic attacks much much better, and i have my mom to thank as my biggest help through this. but now im so scared of marijuana that i wont hardly leave the house to hang out with anyone because im so scared that someone will be smoking pot, and those extreme panic attacks will happen again. it is my biggest fear, i am terrified of marijuana, so much that it has ruined my social life, and i only smoked from october to december of 2010. my anxiety and panic attacks have also branched off from just being scared of marijuana, im scared to be around people and hang out with friends,i have been scared of death, and scared of the thought, how am i going to live with this the rest of my life? i have constant fears of so many things. i haveimproved a good deal since this began in december but im still so scared. i dont know what to do. has anyone else experienced something like this? does anyone know what i can do?
