Couple of things happened to me yesterday. 1st off I visited NYC for the 1st time and walked all around w/ my family and had a great time. I don't want to dismiss the good things for my ocd/panic.
At radio city music hall, while I was watching the show, I kept having this weird feeling that I can't swallow properly (my saliva) and that it was suffocating me and keeping me from breathing. I had this years ago when my social anxiety 1st came about and I always had a water next to me to try and drink that and help me swallow. Just wondering if others felt that way.
2nd - on the bus ride home, they put SpiderMan-3 in for the movie. It wasn't easy to not watch as the screens were all going and the sound of the movie was throughout the bus (it was very load). I usually don't watch any scary or action movies as I know I get panicky. I didn't have much of a choice in this situation. So I watched it and even though it isn't a gory movie, I found the story line of good and evil, mainly evil taking over, got me scared. Plus people did die in it, and i don't like that either. I felt like a baby on the bus. Looking around there were people of all ages. My what ifs, started making me feel, What if watching this movie will now make me crazy and violent.
I ALWAYS feel scared several days after watching a movie that brings me out of my comfort zone. But I wanted to ask others here if they have the same experiences.
Thanks so much,
