Anyone else ever get a panic attack in a store because you are just so sick and afraid you'll collapse on the floor in the store? I went to the foodstore today because it's going to snow here and I wanted to make sure I stocked up. I was flaring before I went, but I didn't realize how badly I was flaring. Once I got into the store, the chemical smells started making me sick. And I found my legs were weak walking around. I was just really sick. And I started to get a panic attack because I was afraid if I didn't hurry up and get out fast, I was going to collapse. It was awful. I was like almost crying in the store. But I did manage to finish the shopping and come home. And of course by the time I got home, I was in a massive pain flareup. I could barely walk from it. I got alittle sleep, but I'm still exhausted and just really not okay at all. This disease is so horrible. I wish people knew how bad this really is. The pain I was in when I came home was suicidal pain. It was that severe, my joints, my muscles. And the stiffness. Unreal. I usually try not to go out if I'm flaring, but I didn't have a choice this time. The weather is going to be bad for awhile.
