Hello, New to board, mind if I join in on this one?
You know you have panic disorder when...you spend more time talking to your horse than you do people because your horse can hear you from your bedroom window and ya don't even have to leave your house.
-As soon as you see a police car while driving, you start swerving all over the road in terror because you're sure you're about to be arrested.
-You take your pulse at least five times per hour.
-You put off sending an email for the entire day to avoid the panic attack that you know it will bring, and consequently have panic attacks all day because you know you still have to send it.
-You worry so much that you actually worry about worrying.
when you drive by a cemetery and are scared to breathe because you might inhale a ghost.
When you are grocery shoppng you have to run to the drink isle and open a water before you die.
When you drive to a different town to go to the ER so the new doctor will take you seriously
When you leave whole plates of food uneaten because it has been poisoned.
When you constantly make your husband take sips of your drink to prove to you it's not poisoned.

-when you think your boss is going to kill you because you sent your fax cover sheet a day late.
-when you can't breathe because you know that in only five weeks you have to give a presentation.
-when it takes you an hour and a half to complete a quiz that everyone else finished in twenty minutes.

(4)EVERYTIME I HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH SOMEONE I ALWAYS TALK ABOUT PANIC ATTACKS NOTHING ELSE (OBSSESD)
AND LOTS MORE LOL
I don't know if anyone has said this one,but here goes. You know you're having a panic attack when you feel sure you are going to die in the next few minutes and your solution is to do a hundred jumping jacks or run up and down the stairs fifteen times to see if you die.
... you try on 50 different outfits before you give in and put your pajamas back on!
... you can't remember if you've taken your meds or not!
... you call in "sick" to your doctor's appointment
... you have to drive alone, in the dark, in a big, unknown city
... you have to leave the house and you don't even want to get out of bed!
1)You get up in the middle of the night to tidy up the house and put your "good" bra and panties on because you want to look your best when the paramadics come for you in the morning, or whenever someone finally finds you.
2)You're in the shower and suddenly realize you're about to pass out and will probably die when you hit your head against the shower door or floor and they will eventually find you lying there dead NAKED!
3)Similar fear as the shower... passing out while going to the bathroom, hitting head, dying, found with pants or skirt down.
4)You look over at your coworker/office mate and ask them about their cpr/life saving skills and inform them of your condition so that they are prepaired when it happens.
5)Walked from your office which is in the back of the building to the front lobby because you know something is about to happen and you want to make it easier for the paramedics to get to you when they arrive. Besides, you don't want to be drug down the hall with everyone looking at you. Being in the lobby just makes sense.
6)Wake up at 2 or 3 am and just have to get on the internet to look up the funny feeling you are having and stay up crying the rest of the night because you know you've got something terminal and are about to fall down dead.
7)Be in the middle of a meeting and have someone look over at you and ask what the heck you are doing because you leg is swinging back and forth (while crossed) at a frantic rate.
8)While wating for the doctor to come in and give you the impending bad news, you recite "Hail Mary" over and over again until the nurse comes in and catches you and says, "I'm sorry, did you say something to me?"
