Hi THreeboysMom,
I'm a mom of 3 boys, too! They're my world, I just love them!

Here's something that alot of people don't realize, when we get excited we have a surge of adrenaline just like when we get anxious, so of course we can have the tendency to have the same symptoms. Usually when we're excited it's about something positive, so we don't even notice the symptoms, we're not focused on them. As soon as we're anxious, we focus on our symptoms and how we're feeling. Adrenaline is adrenaline, no matter what, it's how you perceive it. Hope that makes sense. Don't be afraid of it, it's just feelings, you're not going to have a nervous breakdown. I'm sure you've experienced the worst already. Anxiety/panic has a distinct patter and limits. It doesn't get worse, you can just prolong your symptoms by what you're saying to yourself. I wish you the best!

Thank you both for the response.That really does make sense and i know it probably seemed liked a crazy question but unfortuantly with my a/p goes health anxiety as well eyes so it seems lately the smallest thing will set me off! Anyway thank you both again it really did help!

This is another bad thing about anxiety and Panic. You can't even enjoy the excitement anymore because it feels like anxiety. I've found them so difficult to differentiate. If I'm going on a vacation I feel these mixed feeling most. Am I excited or anxious. The anxiety has been for so many years that the signals in my brain are all scrambled. At this point there is no answer- at least for me.
