I'm still new to this site though I've written a couple of blogs (http://anxietyuk.healthunlocked.com/blogs/303883/Light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel
As you'll see from my first post, I try and bring humour/positive thinking into my anxiety. This got me wondering about the best (or most humourous) panic attacks I've had, therefore here's a list of the top three:
3: Any recent time driving over Briton Ferry bridge (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?rlz=1C1AFAB_enGB451GB451&sugexp=chrome,mod%3D17&q=briton+ferry+bridge&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=oiDZT6mCF4a-0QWZwdS0BA&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&cd=3&ved=0CFMQ_AUoAg)
For some reason I started fearing the motorway over this bridge. It's not straight and has a curve (if they'd built it straight I'd be ok!) and you can drive 70mph on it. However, the last time I went over it, I did about 20 mph and the old biddies were overtaking me and beeping the horn whilst my wife was trying to stay calm. Now it has affected me driving on the motorway.
2: Morrisons shopping. Was on my own and did the shop and was in the queue. Put the shopping on the belt and had the panic attack. I rushed out and left everything there! Outside phoned my wife who calmed me down and I managed (only just) to walk back in and go to the check out. Thankfully the very kind people behind me and the check out girl had bagged my items and were wondering where I was. I only just managed to get there and pay for the items whilst muttering thanks and explaining that I was having a panic attack. Managed to get out of there and home.
1: The best one! Got up and went downstairs to do something (had a drink the night before) and came back up really anxious and worried. Checked my pulse and couldn't find so went into a full blown panic attack as my heart was stopping or stopped! Told my wife what was happening and sat up in bed. Brought back down to earth by my wife pointing out that my heart couldn't have stopped as I was sitting up in bed and alive! She's a woman so she's got to be right! Lol
