I wanted to ask a question about suffering from panic/anxiety attacks due to excitement/something good happening. Does anybody else get this? I'm incredibly frustrated.
I may have mentioned to a few members that I have been wanting to open my own business, I started the ball rolling and it's gathered pace and I have been getting great news from contacts I have been making. Yesterday was great in particular as a company showed a huge interest. The adrenaline started pumping around my body, I got excited, I felt like my mind and body was going 100 miles an hour, but in a good way. And that was it...the rest of my day was ruined. My chest was so tight I kept having to inhale heavily, my heart couldn't decide whether it wanted to beat normally or too fast. I got into bed and at around 11-12 o clock I flung up, unable to breathe properly, my heart all over the place and on came the intense shaking. Previously my attacks have effected me for half an hour or more, but this only lasted about 10 minutes or so and I went back to sleep exhausted from it. I was so tired this morning. I've had furtgher contact with the companies again and am still working full time and having normal work handed to me and I'm feeling a bit hectic and stressed with it all. I just want to be able to enjoy this time and really start concentrating on it, but I keep having to take steps back to calm down.
Does anybody else find that they get this when something intense yet positive is happening?
