I hope you have pulled over Johnnie. Turn the car off and just sit back and breathe. If too agitated to do that, get out and walk back and forth. You will be okay..

Johnnie, I understand how overwhelmed you must feel. You want answers as to what is really wrong with you. There may not be an answer that will satisfy you since everything you are experiencing relates to anxiety. Whether smoking weed brought it on,, who knows. The fact is you will have to accept that's it's anxiety at this point. Fighting it and being fearful will just keep it going.

I can't remember if you see a therapist or not. Therapy can help you go forward and not ruminate over smoking weed. We can't go back and erase our past. So we need to go forward and do what we have to in order to assure a better future.

Also, remember it's normal for your heart rate to go up after eating. The heart pumps harder in order to fuel your digestion. Hope you feel better soon.

I unstand how that is. I've felt that way many times awhile back, I just wanted to jump out of the car and take off. My first panic attack, my sister was driving me to the hospital and all of a sudden I freaked out and jumped out of the car.. pretty much collapsed on a church parking lot. It was super embarrassing to me at that moment. But now looking back I know it was just the fight or flight sensation. I was freaking out in the car and felt like I needed to get out quick

I'm praying you feel better from this soon maybe some cbt may help? It's good to get things off your chest instead of holding it all in. Best wishes X

These physical symptoms have been the bane of my existence for 30 years. Road trips flip me out, just for this reason. Never know if im going to eat something that makes me feel like i want to jump out of my skin.

And lordy help me if i get stuck in traffic and this happens.

I become a cartoon​ of myself.

Creepy, huh?
