In an effort to raise more awareness for mental health problems, and the impact that sufferers battle with on a daily basis, one man bravely chose to film himself during a severe panic attack. He has since uploaded the video to share what it looks like to have a panic attack with the world.
27-year-old YouTube user Casey Throwaway filmed the emotional video, titled “Anxiety Sucks”, to show that the symptoms of anxiety disorders are real, and should be taken seriously.
He said he also hoped to connect and find solidarity with others who suffer from mental illness.
Casey describes panic attacks as emotionally exhausting the attacks and shares how powerless panic attacks make the sufferer feel.
