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 eyes
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! sad   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?

hey crying,
dont feel stupid about what happened,
i can get panic attacks anytime even if im just at home. i guess internal diolouge matters alot like you have to tell yourself that its just a panic attack, and you are going to be ok and get through it. i have to work on this myself, because sometimes during episodes of panic i work myself up even more, freak out and convince myself there is something more wrong with me, what if i dont get out of this one , what if i lose my mind? kinda thing, which only makes me panic more, so its kinda a viscious cycle. deep breathing def. helps even if it doesnt seem like much. hang in there! good luck!
