Anxiety Attack

When my mind combats itself

the toll is not only

the loss of my sanity

for those moments,

but a lingering ache in my body

spanning from my neck

down my shoulders

knotted in my stomach

which will remain for days

and when they build upon one another

I feel crippled

unable to perform as I should

I wish to call out

to nurse myself into recovery

yet society has not deemed treatment

for such instances

as imperative

as mending a wound

or tending a cold

but does that merely

make us more susceptible

for successive attacks?
