More Than Just "a" Panic Attack
I get tense before going into a meeting at work. I have an automatic hatred for people I've never met. But this has been happening for a while. Why can I all of a sudden just not handle it anymore? I can no longer be in a group of my friends. During my lunch break, I have to hide out in a bathroom stall and stay away from my friends. I'm so extremely worried that I may have a very embarrassing outburst in the middle of a meeting. I feel everyone around me is an ignorant idiot. I have had to miss countless days of work and am on the verge of being fired. Thank God my boss is understanding, but it's becoming ridiculous. I desperately want to go back to work, but this condition won't allow me to behave normally in a group. My panic attacks have become more and more frequent and I cry uncontrollably every time I even think about entering the office. My life has become one constant panic attack. I'm only calm when I'm alone or with only one or two other people. For the past week, these episodes have been doubling in intensity everyday. Please, someone provide me with a solution or a way to ease the stress. I can't go on like this, it's getting really ridiculous.
