You Know You Have Panic Disorder When...
-You look for the nearest escape route everywhere you go. YEP, do that
-You wonder if anyone would notice if you locked yourself in the bathroom at your own party. Never did that
-You carry an industrial size bottle of hand sanitizer with you wherever you go. Never do that
-You have to mentally prep yourself for three days before going to pick up milk at the grocery store. HAHAHHA yep, doing that right now!
-You envy your pets because they don't have to leave the house. Always....good one!
-Immediately upon waking you check to make sure every part of your body feels normal. If your toe hurts you panic for the rest of the day and call in sick. Never do that
-You're pretty sure the receptionist at your doctor's office hates you. I'm lucky in that I don't care who hates me
-You sit at work and write lists because your anxiety has wreaked havoc on your concentration and you're pretty sure you have ADD now too. OH YEAH
-You leave a cart full of groceries because the check out line is too long. I did this once, now I walk around the store until the line is shorter
-You let your hair grow ridiculously long because you're sure awful things will happen if you sit in that chair. HAHAHHA....OH YEAH
-You suffer through horrible headaches because you're sure that if you take a painkiller it will kill you. nope
-When you do take a pill, any pill, you cut it in half, and sometimes in quarters, just to make sure you're not taking too much. Yep
-When someone's talking to you, they have no idea that while you're looking at them and nodding, you're not hearing one word they're saying because all you can think of is "how do I get out of here?" hahhah yep
-You take a shower and do your hair because you don't want the paramedics who are going to pick up your dead body to comment that you smell and look awful. Would do this if I were single. Parmedics are HOT!
-You read this thread and nod knowingly. NOD
