IKINUWENTO ni Yassi Pressman na nagka-anxiety attacks at matindi ang kanyang pinagdaraanan sa pagyao ng kanyang pinakamamahal na ama noong nakaraang taon.
Ayon kay Yassi, “That was one of the hardest times of my life and I just had more anxiety attacks.
“I didn’t know how to feel, odidn’t know how to process what I was feeling.
“It would get really bad sometimes, to a point where it’s normal for your muscles to be so tense that you can’t move, i felt that I was gonna have a stroke.
Dagdag pa nito, “So it started in my fingers, I couldn’t move my fingers then it was my arms, because I was so tired from, I guess, shouting and getting everything out, of crying.
” I can’t breathe and my lungs were tired. My legs didn’t move, and my stomach was so tight.
“I read more about how to handle anxiety attacks, how to breathe, and how to even tap parts of your body when you’re feeling it in your stomach.
“I was scared, i was really scared. Now that i know na that happens, i can handle my breathing better.
“I can not panic anymore and say that it’s okay, it will pass. And i think that’s a good thing to know.”
Ang kanyang mga pamilya at malalapit na kaibigan ang naging sandalan ni Yassi sa mga panahong nagluluksa siya sa pagyao ng ama at nang nakakaramdam siya ng anxiety attack.
