    But first, I thought your article was great. Information everyone needs to know, regardless of age. Very valuable informaiton at that!

    But it...Well it didnt cover my thing. Which i really need covered.

    I have a massive, devestating panic disorder. Like, multiple times a day i can become convinced im about to die (despite never once having the symptoms im afraid of...I really hate panic.). I will get dizzy, VERY dizzy from vertigo. I wont be able to speak, will repeat whole sections of sentences, and blank out repeatedly (Not black out; my mind just empties of all coherence.)

    And I dread very much the day that I might have to do this. I can guarantee  that, if a cop talks to me for any reason, it will cause a panic attack. Im afraid it might get..misinterpreted..So any advice would be very appreciated.

    Again, sorry for asking this here but..Ive tried other places and no luck :(

    Skulls are not supposed to jump around!

    •  Try 12 Step program and Recovery Int. (0+ / 0-)

      I would start with inexpensive solutions like a 12 step program.  I went through a very nervous period of my life when my employer wanted to get rid of me and tried it.  There is some comfort in finding and talking to others that have similar problems.  

      I know someone who had panic attacks and tried Recovery Int.  He now leads groups at Recovery Int.  Google it.
