I used to love storms, but recently ive been really freaking out when we get them, although i do find it is getting better, i think it is because its the first time ive had storms since having anxiety/panic attacks.
hope it does settle for you soon...
We have had storms since I developed a/p, but I think it is just more complicated now. Everything makes me nervous now so... it did eventually pass after the storm was over. But, I still couldnt sleep. I stayed up really late and got up really early, that was very bad. It made me really sick. Plus, I have been having alot of headaches. So, I guess I have a lot to be worrying about. The storm probably just added on to that.
Something that helps me calm down during storms is listening to my mp3 player, it takes my mind off everything around me and i cant hear much of the storm because the music is playing.
Maybe if you try this or something similar, hopefuly it will help.
Hope its gets better soon..
