Exactly. For me the issue is stomach discomfort and vomiting. I also get really short with people and agitated with almost anything. Its like I dont even want to be wherever it is I am having the anxiety attack at.

There's a difference between being #introverted, being #shy, and being #anxious. They are NOT synonymous; however, it's been shown that these traits often overlap. Being introverted means that you feel drained after social interaction. Being shy means that you find social interaction embarrassing. Having #socialanxiety feels more like panic. What about you? Are you introverted, shy, or anxious? Or all three? (I'm an #introvert with occasional #anxiety, but not usually shy.)
Anxiety doesn't always begin "naturally". Sometimes it is the end result of years of abuse, whether it's mental/emotional or physical. Be gentle with people that have anxiety issues, you never know what their story is.
