Re: A few questions...
Some people have anxiety attacks when anything reminds them of previous attacks. Years ago, I'd get anxious every Thursday night because I'd had two bad attacks on Thursday nights. My mother had one of her first attacks on Christmas Eve a LOOOOOONG time ago, and she said it took here several years not to be anxious on that day.
I get symptoms sometimes just reading about them. Some medical shows freak me out, but usually the "real" ones like the ones on Discovery Health channel. I hate turning on the tv and seeing someone being defibrillated. Ugh, even writing that word makes me anxious! You're not alone, I've talked with many people with the same fears, here on this board, on other boards, and "in real life".
