Not really sure what answers I'm expecting. There's nothing anyone can say. I know what I'm panicking about is irrational. But I have a physical reaction all the same.
I have a panic attack when I eat, when I go out, when I come in, when I sit down, when I'm busy, when I'm bored.
My throat muscles tighten and i can't breath. I get numb pins and needles in my face, chest, teeth, tongue and fingers.
I have an intense phobia of having an allergic reaction, or my throat or my tongue swelling up so I suffocate and die. Never happened before. I'm not allergic to anything. Completely irrational.
I'm just wanting to know if anyone else has something similar and what coping mechanisms you used to get through it..
I function fine on a daily basis. I go to work. I go out with friends. But when I'm alone, or sometimes at a random time it strikes. And honestly I feel like an idiot. Its all I can do to not scream like a child for an ambulance 'just in case this is the ONE time'.
