Victory Posted February 24, 2009 Share Posted February 24, 2009 I've always suffered from mild panic attacks, but I was able to control them. Lately I've been getting them at work, or when I'm on long walks with my dog (and have too much time to think). I get so panicky about grad school admissions that I start to hyperventilate (almost passed out twice).Yesterday I actually left work 30 min early and didn't tell anyone because I was freaking out so bad (I just ran to my car and drove home). At work I get myself into this OCD routine where I'm checking my email probably 15 times a minute (I have gmail, so it refreshes automatically), while cycling through a few grad school message boards, plus doing my work. On lunch breaks I keep my blackberry set to my gmail account and refresh it every minute or so. I feel like it has taken over my life. Anyone else been getting crazy panic attacks over this stuff? I don't mean stressed out, I mean heart pounding, can't breathe, must leave the room or freak the fuck out kind of panic attacks? I can't wait for all of this to be over...
