I am terrified of spiders. Big ones, little ones, any! I have panic attacks when I see them. I went to a reptile show once and there was a kind man that tried to help me. He put a large red kneed tarantula in my hand, a little at a time talking to me all the while. I thought I was going to die. I was sweating, tears ran down my face, and I had all I could do not to pass out. I made myself hold her for about 10 minutes thinking it would help me in the long run. When she crawled back on his hand I felt so proud. Did it help me? Hell no! It's as worse as ever. Thank God I live in NY state where they aren't so bad in the village. I need to overcome this. I even have nightmares about them.
Hope y’all are all having a wonderful day. To begin, I joined this Group because none of my friends or family understand and it’s killing me. I am 23, I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 years or so. It’s been really severe the past 5 years. I just found out 2 weeks ago I have FM. There’s no cure for it and the muscular pain is at a level 8-10 every second of every day. I’ve done all...
I had a major panic attack yesterday which required me to leave a bar. I was only there for about a half hour. While the intensity has subsided, I still feel panicky today and had a hard time going to the supermarket today. Has anyone ever experienced this? How did you get through it?
