hi all, hope everyone is coping the best way that you can. i am on the depression forum, been up all night and i was remembering a massive panic attack i had; i thought i would share it with you. many years ago i was shopping in my supermarket and i was started to feel tight, i noticed i was sweating, i started to spin out, the sweating instensified and i was looking at people, and i felt them looking at me, suddenly i started to hyperventilate and sat on the ground in one of the ailes. i was shaking, a staff member came up to me and asked what are doing on the floor? i responded that i am having a panic attack-this person spun out and got the manager. the manager approached and sternly asked why are you sitting on the floor in my store and i said i am having a panic attack. he said why are you doing this in my store? i said do you see the trolley with groceries next to me, he said yes but didn't get it. i said i am shopping in your store and i am having a panic attack. he thought that i came from the sky and decended into his store to have a panic attack!! once he realised i was a shopper he said can i do anything for you, i said some water please and maybe some retraining for you and your staff on people who may have difficulties with shopping and anxiety.
 
hoping i changed some attitudes. with compassion, jamie.
just thought i would share this. my anxiety years ago was severe, thankfully the anxiety issues passed, it is the depression and borderline personality that i manage now. i however understand anxiety, de-senstization therapy really helped, i hope for continued healing for you all. with absolute compassion, jamie. thx 4 letting my post on your forum. will try to pop by once every so often.

Hi Jamiee, its Gem!  My first panic attack was waiting in line at Wal-Mart.  Wonder what it is about anxiety and shopping?  Nice of you to post here, I bounce around from anxiety to depression (just like in real life) and sometimes on the Bipolar forum.  I am not currently taking any meds, some days I feel really well, some days not, but I just try and ride it out, the meds either do not work or make me very sick.  Just taking one day at a time, know you are as well.
