Mr.Mister Posted July 28, 2008 Share Posted July 28, 2008 I stay on a pretty strict schedule, because if I don't, I'll forget everything I'm supposed to do. (I have MS and forgetfulness is normal I guess.) I write everything down in my phone's scheduler, but sometimes changes in my routine can really freak me out. Like today I was supposed to go to the dentist at 3pm. I had it in my phone to go, so I got around and had plenty of time to get there and be a little early too. But, as I was driving there, the road I always take was closed for construction. So, I attempted to drive around the construction but the roads were all back-roads and I got very lost. I never made it to the dentist. I was lucky to find my way back to a road that was familiar, but by that point I just wanted to go home. By that point I was having a panic attack. Whenever something doesn't go according to my original plan, I get one of these and it happens often enough to mention it here. What's the best way to calm down from a panic attack? Anyone here deal with them and how do you get them? I normally just try to get home (somewhere comfortable) and I used to live by a restaurant that made my favorite so I would sometimes get my favorite there to take home when I'd panic, as like comfort food or something.
