ERRR... OKay I am kinda venting alittle here sorry.
I had a rough morning. I felt so stuipd cause I had a panic attack taking my new dog to the vet
Yep a trip to the vet set off my panic. I really felt dumb. It started in at home with feeling stressed and shaky and then it got worse in the car with short breaths and heart pounding and the closer it got the worse. When I got in the office I was having heart palps, pounding/racing heart, sweaty feeling hot. I was sitting there with my new dog, 3year old son and my paninc!!! I was tring to think of any reason I could to get up and leave so I could go sit in my car and calm down and run back home with my tail between my legs! But I couldnt think of anything and my heart was hurting and I was freaking out and then they called me back NNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Well when we got back into the room I had to hold the dog so that kind of helped take my mind of off my heart and I had to awnser questions and that helped too. we were back there for a very long hour but I somehow got through it. Not sure how but I got through and went strait home,LOL . But you know what I dont get, is why in the back of my head I always think people are thinking something bad about me. I kept thinking the vet was going to think I was a bad dog owner or he was going to be looking for proof that I was fit to have a dog. I know I am good to my dog and just love her to peices. But I cant help feel that people are think bad about me.
Sorry I didnt mean this to get so long. anyonee have any advise on how to handle the public panic attack that you cant run and hide from?
