The doc has a forklift truck to carry your medical records.
You check every 'best by date' on foods (in case you get poisoned).
Friends stop inviting you out.
You know word perfect 'the boy who cried wolf'
Your neighbours think your a vampire (cos you rarely see daylight)
These posts have made me laugh so much, i felt i had to add my bit.
The grocery one is totally me. I go so fast I end up spending way too much because I didn't stop and compare, just grabbed the first thing I could find!!!

Re: You know you have panic disorder when...

when u actually go to the dr office and while waiting try and do deep breathing exercises so you bp isn't sky high and when you get in there and tell the dr you have a panic disorder and they understand and actually give you something for it! i can so relate to all these responses! may peace come to all of us!

Re: You know you have panic disorder when...

Wow. I thought I was the only one who chewed on their fingers when nervous. It starts with peeling the skin from the side of my thumbs and when that gets too tender I start on the other fingers. It's embarrassing because sometimes I can't stop myself even in public. With the stress and anxiety lately at work, all my fingers are bloody.

Re: You know you have panic disorder when...

*when you want to watch scary movies becuase that is normal fear.
*when you dont answer you phone, but gets mad when no one answer you call.
*when you have about every anxiety and panic books there is.
*when your husband just rolls his eyes when you start to have a panic attack.
*when your afraid to watch the health channel.
*when its the only time you can lose weight and you say, but its not worth it.
* when you dread to go to bed and dread to wake up
*when you sleep all day to get away from your feelings.
*when you cant leave your home with out your husband,
*when you are afraid to take a shower because your afraid you will panic and have shampoo in your hair, or even better

Re: You know you have panic disorder when...

You know you have panic disorder when you are disappointed that your blood tests came back "normal."

Re: You know you have panic disorder when...

1. as soon as your heart starts to race, you immediately think death.
2. you get too hot when you take a bath and worry you may pass out.
3. you get freeked out when your animals look at you funny because they have that sixth sense.
4. you end up talking to a stuffed animal for about an hour before you fall asleep to keep your mind off of your heart.
5. you try every position in bed you can think of until your wound up like a pretzel, just to not feel your heart.
6. you compare your breathing/heartrate with the closest thing to you, even if it's the cat.. then you think the dogs bigger.. maybe i should try that.
7. you constantly take other peoples pulses.
8. you can't watch a movie that makes you think or you freek out.

hm. that's all i can think of.

Re: You know you have panic disorder when...

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.

You know you have panic disorder when ...

-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.

Re: You know you have panic disorder when...

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.
