Example text

I was broke and unable to work. I felt like a burden to everyone around me. My safe zones had diminished to the point that I didn’t want to go beyond the end of the street. I couldn’t even drive my car around the block without going into panic. Before I knew it, I was down to only one safe zone—the house and yard. My days consisted of sleeping late, trying to take a shower and get dressed without panicking, and sitting in front of the television or computer all day. I tried to watch something interesting or play computer games most of the time so that I wouldn’t dwell on the horde of physical symptoms I experienced continually.

I felt the panic coming on in a hurry but managed to get the truck pulled over on the shoulder. I had all the symptoms as before, but they seemed stronger than ever. My brother was seeing all of this for the first time and didn’t know quite how to take it. He just watched me in helpless amazement as I went through the routine: the tingling in my hands and feet, the lips going numb, the hyperventilation, the dizziness, the panic. This attack was so severe that I really thought I would not live through it.

Remembering my concern about being able to pull over quickly, I drove in the right lane all the way home. I found that as I got farther away from work, my anxiety started to get worse. I turned on the radio and tried to sing along to get my mind off the way I was feeling. Once I had sight of my apartment building, my anxiety started to lighten up. I couldn’t get there fast enough. I raced into the parking lot and parked my car quickly. I was home and felt better already. My wife was very surprised to see me home.
