when you freak out and leave the groceries at the checkout because you cant handle waiting in the queue any longer
when you leave the movies right after the previews because you feel claustraphobic
when you cant enjoy a fancy restaurant because you are planning your escape route the whole time
when you want to punch the people that say "maybe you are just high strung?"
Anxiety 2007; IBS 2004; Chronic Hives 2002. Medications: Allegra, Zantac, Xanax, Darvocet.
You know you have panic disorder when you've had 8 hours of sleep, wake up at 8 AM and start having a million panic attacks and need to take xanax and ativan just to pass out to not have to experience the attacks.

Sam and Kitt, you have me laughing so hard I'm crying.
You know you have a panic disorder when:
you work in a hospital and are on a first name basis with ALL of the ER doctors and they know you by name as well (and not because you work together).
you carry a little ziplock baggy in your pants pocket with your anxiety meds in it EVERYWHERE you go (just in case).
You know you have panic disorder :
When you count your Ativan every single day, and then divide by how many days you have left until your refill
When you make sure your underwear is clean in anticipation of a trip to the ER
when your afraid to watch the health channel
when your appointment with your psychiatrist scares the living day lights out of you.
Batter up..........your next. Share with us Hugs,Kitt
