Soooo I went into this tool shop with my fiance, Patrick. I can't remember anything like that happening while I was enduring my trauma.... but before we even went inside, I was irritable. The next thing I know, I'm REALLY irritable. Then, the next thing I realize is that I don't know where an exit is. I start totally freaking out, though I was able to control the level of my voice to some degree, and told Patrick I needed to get out NOW. He walked with me through the store, soothing me, and showed me a fire escape exit as we walked. He then told me where the front door was and I felt a bit calmer. (It was like a hardware store with everything crammed together.) I am not normally simply claustrophobic (that I know of) and I was irritated before we went in, but when we got out, I ran from Patrick to the truck because of the noises of the cars on the street; it made me want to scream my head off. I covered my ears and cowered near the truck until he came and got me and calmed me down. I was BAWLING. (Sorry so long...) Anyway, I have NO idea what the trigger was... does this happen to anyone?
