Defensive mode

Dear Doc,

I have a problem that drives me crazy! It never goes away, it haunts me everyday, sometimes I try to talk to myself abt it but It drives me crazy, literally. It''s not getting any better. I for sum reason get really, idk how to even explain it. It''s my breast. Like I can be laying on the bed and make a sudden movement and I just feel crazy for a minute. I feel like I''m bein taken advantage of. And I''m not. If I''m in a close crowd my body automatically gose into defense mode. Even when my hands are simply by my side, my mind tells my body defense. So I cross my arms and put them as close to my body as possible. And even then i still dont feel like secure. When I think abt it or try to talk to myself abt it, my mind goes nutz! Fetal position is usually the next step. I sometimes can''t sleep or it makes me want to
fight (for sum reason) or cry and fight at the same time. It really drives me crazy. I can''t verbally talk abt it. " people"  say it isn''t good to wear a bra to sleep but I have to. Not wearing one is never an option. I have to have one on at alllll times. Like now my mind is going in circles so I''m gonna stop talking abt it. Idk whts wrong tho.
