Do you ever feel like your suffocating and need to drop everything and step out?

The other day I felt like this and dropped everything, told SO "I need to get out of here! NOW!" and left. I went to visit a friend for a bit and came back feeling better. I want to know who else gets this way??

  • Yes! It's called a panic or anxiety attack. I know exactly what you mean. I have felt like that for a few days now. I even had to break down and take a Xanax so I could sleep. You did the right thing by getting out and calming down, good for you for knowing when you need that break. There is nothing wrong with needing that break. Hang in there.

  • ALL THE TIME!! Im a stay at home mom. and all the housework and taking care of my son gets so overwhelming when my husband works rough hours. There have been a few times that he would get home and i would walk right out. Although i dont have any friends around here so i just go for a drive or take a walk in the park just anything to get away. Even going grosery shopping will give me a little time to relax if i dont have to take my son.
