mad   Sometimes, even when I was younger, I would be in a store or something and get a sudden feeling of doom or feeling uncomfortable, like passing out and I would feel like I had to hurry up and leave the store. Has anyone else ever felt like that. It has happend soooo many times, even when I was younger, I dont know if it was a mini panic attack or what!! I seriously feel like I am crazy !AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH

Sounds like panic to me. I get like that when I am in uncomfortable situations sometimes. Often in stores. I get a very hot feeling, like everything is hazy and I have to get out ASAP. I have many different stages of uncomfortable. I am sure this is one of yours. You should definitely not feel crazy.

self help books on recovery from agoraphobia and panic disorder have useful advice and can usually be borrowed from a library

Hi Angela

I used to get those feelings as well, only I did pass out before I could get out of the store or where ever. I did get over that rough patch, but every so often it does sneak up on me, now I try to just go with it or ignore the feeling. It really does make one think they are crazy, but we're not. I hope you find some relief soon.

Oh yes , but now I manage to stay in the shop. Sometimes the feeling goes , sometimes it doesn't and I start shaking etc... so I slow down , pick something up to look at and try and take my mind of the A/P.
Even thinking about something nice that's happened or something funny helps.
I talk to myself (in my head so ppl don't start staring) I say to my A/P - "hey , so you think your gonna make me go out when I don't want to , I don't think so , I'm bigger than you and you can't tell me what to do" and stuff like that - try to bully it away.

You are NOT crazy , things will get better :)
