I understand completely, OP. I want nothing more than to be able to write the stories I have in my head, but for the past year, any attempt to do so ends in a panic attack, whether I'm trying to write fanfic or original stuff. The harder I try to write, the more jumbled and frantic my mind gets until I've worked myself into a sobbing mess. This isn't the first time it's happened, either. Early last year, I was able to write almost every day for about five months or so after having a three-year bout of not being able to write anything at all. I don't really know what triggers these long-term blocks or what, specifically stops them, other than waiting them out. It's been this way all of my adult life; I'll have a few months where I'm able to write thousands of words in one sitting and then I'll have years where I struggle to write one goddamn word of prose. It's annoying as fuck, especially when some of my writing teachers would tell me that writer's block isn't real and that I just need to pull myself up by my bootstraps and write, that I'm just lazy and looking for excuses. Even my therapist hasn't been much help, so believe me when I say that I identify so much with your secret's last two sentences in particular. You're not alone, OP. I'm sorry you're going through all of this and I'll keep my fingers crossed that we can both break out of our respective slumps and get back to doing what we love, and soon!
