For some reason going to the grocery store makes me get panic attacks during christmas season bc of all the people, but I discoverd if I breathe into a paper bag before I go in, I feel a lot more calm... has anyone ever tried this? It works for me, and I thought it was strange.

since ive been living here i have grown acustom to traveling across town to walmart for shopping. i know when its crowded and when its ok for me to go alone. well they put a new superwalmart right near my house. i am scared to go their because i dont know when its goign to be crowded and i will panic because i will feel lost. its so silly, and i want to go so bad. but i continue to travel across town to the one im familiar with. so weird. i keep telling myself, next time, i am going to the one near me, and then i never do.

grocery stores are the absolute worst for me.  As soon as I am in line I automatically start to feel  panic but try and tell myself that its only my panic.

Oh man Im the same way, I went to an Albertsons for months, spending way too much money bc I didnt want to go to Walmart bc its more crowded. Finally I gave up and started going to Walmart, I had huge attacks every other time I went, maybe every time. But now its so crowded, I dread even going to the Albertsons Im so familiar with. I hate the crowds. I start to panic when another person gets behind me.

When my anxiety was high - I would feel VERY anxious whenever I went to the grocery store.  And to hear others go through that is very strange.  It don't bother me anymore...I am fine with it now.  But that's the strangest thing.....
