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

-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.

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

When you drive out of your way making only right turns because left turns are just too scary!

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

1.) When you let your hair grow extra long because you are so certain that you'll pass out in the barber's/hairdresser's chair

2.) When you would rather go through the McDonald's drive-thru alone and eat a cheeseburger than go out and eat a 20 oz steak with your friends at a nice restaurant.

3.) When you don't want to go to sleep until 3am because you are afraid of waking up and starting the next day.

4.) When you say your prayers before bed just in case you DON'T wake up the next day

5.) When you have to get a little drunk BEFORE going out to the bar/club because if you don't, you won't be able to get yourself to go.

6.) When the only time someone can convince you to go see a movie is when you know that there won't be many people there like weeknights or matinee shows.

7.) When riding in a car going up and down hills feels like the scariest rollercoaster you have ever been on

8.) When you visit someone in the hospital and can't stop thinking, "I'm the one who should be in here..."

9.) When you get wedding/birthday invitations and let them sit on table until the last minute or just don't respond because you can't decide whether or not you can handle going to it.

10.) When you MUST go to the bathroom as soon as you arrive at any restaurant to splash some 'magic water' on your face.

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

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.

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

You people are making me laugh so much, my face is starting to hurt(better go check if thats normal! )

Its definately a thread for those who have had alot of them...myself 5+ years.
By reading these, I am starting to believe that Panic Attacks might be a severe form of OCD/Hypocon.

I will give a junky go at it

You know you have Panic disorder....

You know you have Panic disorder....

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

You know you have panic disorder when ...

... 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!

Happy Holidays.

OMG, this is so true. I was just talking to someone about this the other day (a friend who is a doctor). I think I drive him crazy.

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

You know you have a panic disorder when...

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?"
