Everytime I hear the word "rollercoaster" i get anxiety and start to panic. My palms start to sweat, and my heart beat pulse is crazy fast.

I feel like throwing up even when I see pictures of them, or even hear the word. I hate the feeling of not being able to control yourself....the montion...and most of all, my breathing.

The first and last time I've been on a rollercoaster was when my sister begged me to go with her at the age of 14. It didn't look so bad, after all it was the one at Disney's California Adventure...boy did I think wrong.

While I was on it, I tried to scream at the top of my lungs, but then all of a sudden I felt as if I was going to pass out and throw up while on the ride...and I suddenly start to get sweaty and I can't breathe whatsoever. I feel my heart pounding hard, almost as if I was going to die while on the coaster.

I don't know if it's an anxiety attack i'm having on the rollercoaster, or if I am not breathing.

All I know is that after 5 years, I still cannot go back on a rollercoaster. I try to conquer my fear and just do it, but I will always remember how I felt the last time i've been on was a tramatizing experiance.
