I had a really bad experience tonight. Honestly I'm not even totally sure what happened. I was at the store and got extremely stressed out. My heart was racing and my mind...wouldn't function. I couldn't make a decision to save my life. It was all I could do just to breathe. My mom was with me and I know that she was getting frustrated. I tried (later after I finally calmed down) to explain to her what was happening but I don't think she really understands. I don't know how to explain it. I think she just thinks I'm being difficult. I'm not purposely being difficult...when this happens I honestly can't make a decision. It's like my brain stops functioning. My heart starts pounding and my thoughts start racing so much to the point that it becomes impossible for me to seperate anything in my mind. I feel like my mind goes into overdrive, and short circuts itself. I want to bring this up w/ my therapist but I don't know if it is a PA or what. What do you guys think? Any thing I can read up on to get more information? What can I do in the moment (if any one else has this happen) to calm myself? At this point I've been using SI, but obviously that's not a good think and I don't want meds if I can work w/out them. And how can I better explain this to my mom? Should I just ask my therapist to talk to her? Or is it a lost cause?
