It seems that you are an especially sensitive person. As you have probably already discovered, there are good things about that. My guess is that you are sensitive to other people’s moods and that you are deeply moved by stories and art and music. The down side of sensitivity is vulnerability to stress.
I can’t determine whether you are having anxiety attacks. But, to me, it doesn’t matter how we label your distress. A label won’t help you cope. You need and deserve to have some help developing ways to manage your deep feelings.
When distressed, for example, you could stop and take deep slow breaths. Many people like you find it helpful to “ground” themselves when they start to feel anxious. Grounding involves distracting yourself by, say, noticing everything that is orange in the room or focusing on a picture you love that you keep on your phone. Do some research on the internet to learn other techniques.
If you can’t figure it out on your own, do consider seeing a therapist for some sessions to focus on learning how to best cope with your big feelings.
I wish you well,
