Ok, so, its storming here pretty bad. I have always loved storms. Never been scared of them. I actually like to watch the lightning. BUT, tonight is different. It is storming. Thundering and lightning every 2 seconds. Rain pouring down really hard. It has never happened to me, but I am very anxious. I think it has something to do with the storm.
 
Normally they dont bother me. And I used to sleep sound. Although, now that I have sleep problems, I usually cant fall asleep during them anymore. So, I am stuck here, cant sleep, feeling anxious. I have no idea why. I just feel like somethings different or it means something. I dont know. I have a lot of thoughts going through my mind. I cant slow my thinking. I am really worried and cant stop thinking 'what if' questions.
 
Anyways, storms have never made me like this, but I think this one has, maybe. Does anyone else get like this??? Thanks! And have a GREAT THANKSGIVING!!! Take Care!

I do,

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.

Thanks.

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.. :-)

I see this is an old messege but I just wanted to add to it. We had a really bad storm at my cabin last summer the winds were so bad it ripped trees out by the roots and trashed everything. In our cabin there is no where to go no basement to hide in etc..........I believe it was a tornado which we never usually get here but the storms seem to be worse now. I was shaking so bad I couldnt walk and all I did was cry through the whole thing. Since then when there is wind or a storm I dont sleep until it it over. I watch the trees sway and the news to keep track of the storms. Its silly but I think the one in the summer traumatized me and with Anxiety is is way worse. Everybody that was there seem fine and got over it.

I am bad about storms! I have been this way since I was a kid! Infact we had a tornado watch last night and the winds were bad, very scary!
When we moved here I told my husband I didnt care what kinda house we had or what it looked like just as long as it had a basement!!!
I went thru some really scary storms down in houston tx and I couldnt wait to move away from there!! My phobia about storms have lead me to do some pretty dumb things just to get away from them. But Its good to know I am not alone!
