Re: Is there anyone else out there that has the same problem as me?
Hi, I have just found this site and can't believe it! I had four months off work with panic attacks which cause me to have a BM immediately! I get it into my head that I might break wind (like in a meeting or in a car) and my panic escalates and gets totally out of control and I need to go to the toilet immediately or feel I will have an accident. I am on beta blockers and antidepressants. I am alone and will never be able to have a boyfriend. I don't go out apart from to work but I can't go in a car with anyone else/go on courses etc. this has totally ruined my life. Everyone asks me `why` about my panic attacks, no-one I know understands and I feel like a freak. Does anyone else start by thinking they're going to break wind in a quiet public place etc. Please help me as this is just the tip of the iceberg!
