good afternoon everyone. I hope all of you are doing good today.
I've had panic disorder, anxiety disorder, for as long as I can remember.
sometimes. Like today. It comes out of nowhere like a punch to the stomach.
earlier I was helping my boyfriend wrap his cast up so he can take a shower.
And our cat kept coming into the bathroom, being nosy, etc. normal cat stuff, except in my mind I took it as a "sign"
I thought that the cat was acting weird and he was trying to tell me something terrible was going to happen.
trust me, when I say this I feel like it sounds cr**y.
But it still does not stop me from having really bad anxiety bordering on a panic attack.
I don't know why something like my cat being nosy and walking around the bathroom would trigger my anxiety and that horrible "impending sense of doom" but triggered it certainly has.
so now I keep thinking that something bad is about to happen. I keep checking my pulse, my oxygen level, my blood pressure, I'm just freaking out.
and I don't know why I allowed something so silly to trigger me and it makes me feel helpless and out of control and frustrated with myself
I feel silly even talking about it :(
like people are going to laugh thinking that I'm a weirdo or something
do any of you have things that trigger your anxiety or panic disorder that might not seem like they would be triggering to other people?
All I keep thinking of is this movie I watched where the cat jumps on the bed right before the people die. It was called Dr. sleep. So in my mind oh my God the cat is following me around what if it's like that cat in Dr. sleep?!
Saying it out loud as I am doing "talk to text" for this post I realize that it might sound silly or ridiculous. But to me I feel very anxious and scared right now.
I did take some of my anxiety medication because I have a day that I have to get through. with a lot of work left to do.
and I don't want to start obsessing then turn it into a full-blown panic attack
i'm sorry if this is a silly post. I'm starting to feel like it is LOL but if I don't get these things out of my mind,
I will obsess on them and it will turn into a horrible panic attack
Thank you for reading this I appreciate it
Does anyone have experience with restless leg issues? Of course my legs are jumpy and tingling off and on and that triggers my health anxiety, which then means I am super jittery and tingling all over. Maybe my vitamins and minerals are low I did have weight loss surgery 2 years ago and I don't take my vitamins like I should and I am anemic have been for years. Of course it does not help that I...
