was having a heart attack or food allergy that I was going to die any minute. Heart racing and out of control for no reason. Chills. Trembling. Dry mouth. Hard to swallow even water. Asked a coworker to walk me to the clinic. Was told I was fine and just had a panic attack... I have no history of anxiety, depression, ptsd or anything along those lines. Been sleeping for less than 8 hours but don’t really feel stressed out... is this a sign that I need a break for mental health??

I’d say based on the things you listed here that you need to get plenty of sleep and possibly lay off the caffeine for a bit.

Which is better a “senior consultant” at EY or “Project Manager” at a local large organization?
I’m currently a business analyst and recently k was offered a promotion to Project Manager.
Meanwhile, I got another offer from EY as a Senior Consultant
My current company are willing to match EY offer and they want me to stay.
Part of me wants to join EY as it’s a big name on the resume and I can learn a lot from it BUT another part of me wants the PM and comfort zone in my current job.
Thanks

I feel like my mother prefers another family member (not her child, but same age and gender as me) more than she does me.

How do you get over social/anticipatory anxiety before meetings or interviews? Do you ever get over it?

Of course, some nervousness is normal for anyone, I think. But every time I have a call, my body seems to go in complete panic mode. Sweating, fast heart rate, stiff limbs, nausea, cottony mouth, blanking out... Even if I know what the meeting’s about or prepared for it. I have to take 15 minutes just to get myself to calm down!

Does anyone feel the same or have experience overcoming this?
